7. Control

The company states how and what performance indicators related to sustainability are used in its regular internal planning and control processes. It discloses how suitable processes ensure reliability, comparability and consistency of the data used for internal management and external communication.

The analysis of our main activities and the affiliated opportunities and risks with regard to sustainability is carried out by means of the Sustainability Balanced Scorecard (SBSC). Here, aspects of sustainability are integrated into the four following perspectives: economics and finances, employees and expertise, market and society, ecology and processes. This guarantees that sustainability aspects are taken into account in all operational activities, whether they are directed inwards or outwards.
