The company's future

Corporate sustainability

Sustainable packaging and technologies are key pillars of our "We care for tomorrow" sustainability strategy. This is underpinned by the "Corporate Sustainability" area - the the entire company's consistently sustainable direction, based on three principles social, economic and ecological.In this, we take our lead from the UN Global Compact, the world's largest and most important initiative in the area of sustainable, responsible corporate governance. We are setting clear targets: we want to:
 

  • make a contribution to the quality of life
  • reduce consumption of resources
  • reduce our ecological footprint
  • motivate our partners too to move towards sustainability

No half-measures: the OPTIMA environmental and climate strategy

The starting point for climate protection measures is the calculation of the Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF). The correct accounting of greenhouse gasses was verified by TÜV Süd in accordance with the internationally recognized ISO 14064 standard and the GHG Protocol model.

On a lean footing

We have been sourcing green electricity since 2009, and have already managed to reduce the company's operational carbon footprint by 40 percent by taking extra measures. A further package of measures will reduce this by an additional 25 percent by 2030. Increasing energy and resource efficiency at selected locations and expanding sustainable mobility are important cornerstones for this.
