As the first company to publish a fully integrated triple bottom line report just two years after our foundation in 2000, we’ve been a leader in the sustainability field for decades. We also actively engaged in the development of the UN SDGs by giving input to an open working group.

Our long-standing commitment to people, profit and the planet has put sustainability right at the heart of our business. With our biosolutions contributing to several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), you could say that sustainability is our business.

To keep us on track, we evaluate the success of our strategic priorities against a range of targets. These are for our business, employees and society, and our operations. Our targets seek to maximize the positive impact of our solutions while minimizing the negative impact of our operations. We monitor progress through long-term commitments and short-term milestones.
