Within the scope of our 2018 Sustainability Report we report on the non-financial aspects of our business activities. The focuses of our sustainability reporting in terms of content result from the materiality analysis performed in 2017, on the basis of which we identified the key aspects for our company. These remain valid.


To ensure our sustainability activities have a comparable and transparent framework at all times, we have aligned our reporting with the reporting standard of the German Sustainability Code (DNK). Please refer to the Declaration of Compliance with the German Sustainability Code for further information and details of our sustainability management. We publish this Declaration of Compliance and our sustainability report on our website at You can also find the sustainability report as part of this Annual Report.
