Overview of key figures

By means of specifically selected key performance indicators within the fields Strategy, Supply chainPeople, Community, and Environment, we inform on the effectiveness of our actions, highlight those areas where we are already on the right path, and identify those areas with further need for action.

Select key figures of the International Corporate Responsibility Report 2015 and the GHG balance of the Company Carbon Footprint 2016 were verified by an independent auditing firm.
