“We are delighted to be recognized among the global companies working toward a sustainable future,” said Andreas Fibig, Chairman and CEO. “I have often said that when it comes to sustainability, we will not accept the status quo. Aligned with our sustainability strategy, we are wholly committed to doing our part to transition to a circular economy—one that is restorative and regenerative by design. To be tested and validated by companies like EcoVadis and CDP helps keep us – and the industry - on the right path.”
