Sustainability ratings and indices

Corporate Responsibility (CR) is a key success factor for our business. We want to make a contribution helping Germany and Europe to take a leading role in the digitalisation of the economy and society. Not least in this regard is the assumption of responsibility and the taking into account of the impact of all company activities on individuals, society, and the environment. In light of this, we are focusing on the three CR key focal areas as part of our Responsible Business Plan 2020: “Responsible management”, “Strengthening life in the digital world”, and “Protecting the environment”; we are also integrating ESG criteria (ecological, social and governance aspects) in our corporate decisions. We use sustainability ratings in order to analyse our CR performance and to provide information for investment decision-making. Responsible corporate behaviour is becoming increasingly important for capital market players.
