Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. For us there is no contradiction between sustainability and good business. It's essential in the long run. We constantly work to transform our business, our industry and society. We have gotten far, but we are far from done.
We have come far in the transformation we envision but as a company we believe we can move beyond zero and become a positive and regenerative force in society and for the planet. It’s our obligation, or we have no business running a business at all.
