Responsibility? Always.

Expertise and Know How: the two most important tools for our common success. And to keep it this way it is crucial that we never stop developing our employees and workforce and, just as importantly, maintain a fair and open dialogue with each other. Accepting responsibility also means handling resources with respect and care. To do so we use modern, energy-efficient technologies and cooperate closely with competent partners and the scientific community. We also actively work on ensuring that new realizations are put into practice both within and outside of our own organization.

We do not see community and the environment as being just abstract concepts. We accept responsibility; especially in the areas where we are present actively. We understand that transparency and sustainability are the foundation for acceptance and trust from the broader public.

In order to achieve our goals, we create a working environment in which observance of legal guidelines and regulations as well as the fulfillment of requirements regarding safety and health concerns are integral components of our involvement as a part of society.
