Targets and Target Achievement 2021
We also pursue broad sustainability targets. In this context, we significantly raised our CO2 reduction target in 2021.2 We want to strengthen the sustainability focus of our product portfolio and will update our portfolio steering targets in 2022.3 We also strive to strengthen the sustainability of our supply chains and use resources responsibly. We want to further improve safety in production. In addition, we aim to promote diversity within the company and create a working environment in which our employees feel that they can thrive and perform at their best.
The objective of these targets is to steer our business into a sustainable future, and at the same time, contribute to the implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are focusing on issues where we as a company can make a significant contribution, such as climate protection, sustainable consumption and production, and fighting hunger.
這些目標的目的是引領我們的業務邁向永續發展的未來，同時為聯合國永續發展目標（SDG）做出貢獻1 。我們專注於我們可以做出重大貢獻的議題，如: 氣候保護、消費和生產的永續性以及對抗飢餓。
