At BADER, achieving sustainability means bringing the financial, environmental, and social aspects of our commercial operations together in a permanently balanced and harmonious relationship. Consequently, we follow the holistic approach of the German Parliament’s Enquete Commission to “protect humans and the environment”. In addition to these three dimensions of sustainability, we consider as crucial to work closely together with our customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders to pursue the UN goals holistically, across the entire value chain.
Sustainable management serves to secure the long-term survival of our company and requires company commitment on all levels. In order to systematically anchor this complex task in all our enterprise processes, we established the Competence Center Sustainability (CCS) in 2010. Under senior management leadership, a team working across different business units and plants is responsible for the initiation and implementation of short- and long-term sustainability strategies and goals. These experts ensure that ideas are transformed into projects and search for opportunities in cooperation with employees in all departments to sensibly coordinate financial, ecological, and social aspects.
