We pursue sustainability and responsible behavior not only with the purpose of being competitive today and even more so in the future, but above all because we ourselves judge the value of our results by how we have achieved them and because we believe that success is durable only if it contributes to creating shared value.

While we are aware that we are only at the beginning of this process and that we have a long road ahead of us requiring a great deal of hard work, thought, time and expertise, we are 

also sure we have established solid foundations on which to build the sustainable future we desire.

The pursuit of the perfect, comprehensive integration of sustainability into the way any company does business is, by its nature, a never-ending challenge and with this in mind we will not settle for the results achieved to date but instead will continue to move forward applying our innate desire for improvement.
