19. Political Influence

All significant input relating to legislative procedures, all entries in lobby lists, all significant payments of membership fees, all contributions to governments as well as all donations to political parties and politicians should be disclosed by country in a differentiated way.

The Dussmann Group is not a member of any political organization, is not registered in any lobby list, and does not distribute any political donations. We involve ourselves in the political process whenever our expertise and assessment of certain issues is sought after and relevant for the formation of opinion and decision making.

Within the scope of legislative processes, the topics of minimum wage, migrant and refugee access to the job market, as well as the reformation and regulation of care and care training are especially relevant. In addition, book price fixing is a topic from the political agenda that directly influences the business activities of Dussmann das Kulturkaufhaus. No specific entries were made in political legislative processes.

There are no official criteria for the Dussmann Group's political commitment. Potentially, this is also part of the implementation strategy described in Criteria 3 for the formulation and development, establishment and anchoring of sustainability parameters.
