12 sites to make the difference

Our sustainability policy focuses on a number of themes: our 12 sites. For each of these sites, we believe we can make a concrete positive impact, in every link of the chain. We want to formulate specific, clear objectives for each site.

Why 'site'?

It's a strong metaphor, full of meaning. A site is a work in progress, something that isn't finished yet. A theme we continue to work on with many experts. One stone on top of the other, higher and higher. This is entirely in keeping with our vision on corporate sustainability. Because our work is never finished. We keep building together.
