Sustainability in our Region
Sustainability is an extremely urgent theme and affects everyone. The time to act is now, because it does not happen overnight. Many small steps, collective and individual responsibility and a real commitment will help us to move to the next level and beyond. Beyond clean, green and good…
For us, beyond clean means fighting climate change and protecting biodiversity. Therefore, we will operate climate neutrally by 2030 and will reduce all forms of environmental pollution continuously. Beyond means that we will be climate neutral 20 years earlier than previously planned. As we are the biggest international organization in the Region, we want to contribute and take our responsibility in the market to change the environment.
Beyond green aims to be our customers’ first choice for the products and services they need to decarbonize their supply chain and meet their social criteria. We want to create an ecosystem of green materials suppliers across the Eastern European region and become your Nr. 1. supplier of sustainable materials solutions.
Beyond good is about being a responsible member of global society. By fostering diversity, enriching the communities in which we live and raising social standards in our supply chain, we will contribute to creating a sustainable world – for our employees and society. We have our social responsibility to support the education in the Region.
