Our reporting areas

  • Our most important product is trust

    We are committed to a healthier and safer tomorrow. For our customers and for our employees. This commitment shapes our CR initiatives – with a strategy which focuses firmly on these two target groups.
  • Sustainability is what we do

    Whether it’s sourcing or recycling – we think about the big picture, keeping the entire value chain in mind. And we like to think big in other repects to: we always work on our portfolio of complete services and comprehensive solutions.
  • Less is more

    What drives us in our daily business is a clean and healthy environment. Speaking of which – we regularly trial alternative drives because we want our service drivers to reach their destinations in the cleanest way possible. And when it comes to washing we select the programme “saving resources”.
