The sustainable future of our industry rests on one simple idea: the creation of shared value. That’s why we are building a digital ecosystem that improves opportunities for innovative solutions and circular enablers. For better business and a better world.
Our Sustainable Choice label (currently available in Germany) lets buyers know which suppliers have met the highest ESG requirements. It’s one way we’re helping businesses do the right thing, building a better future, one order at a time.
Our sustainable approach applies to the way we work too. From powering our offices to improving our processes, we’re stepping up and sharing our findings. Request the report to learn what we’ve already achieved and where we’re heading.
In 2021, our practices were assessed by EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. We’re in the top 12% in our industry. It’s a great achievement, but we’ve still got more work to do.
We're transforming our business model and organisation towards a better future. Connecting the economy for sustainable business is a meaningful job to have.
Our long-lasting relationships with our customers, partners and colleagues are based on strong foundations.
