Our Sustainability Strategy 2030
Our understanding of global challenges such as climate change, resource use and human rights has grown considerably over the past few years. We owe it to our customers, our people and ourselves to turn this understanding into action. This plan is our Sustainability Strategy 2030, a comprehensive blueprint that sets ambitious targets for all parts of the business, from our employees to our products and from our customers to our suppliers. It focuses on the decade ahead and is centered around priority topics that we identified with the help of many people and organizations.
