Reading up on sustainability

Sustainability ReportWhat is Der Grüne Punkt doing in order to ensure its operations are economically viable in the long term, ecologically compatible and socially responsible? These corporate goals are the theme of the newly published Sustainability Report, drawn up for the first time in conformity with the guidelines laid down in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

It describes the meaningfully progressed sustainability strategy, presents individual staff and up-to-the-future ideas, and addresses controversial issues like “What’s the point of waste separation?”. It covers specific measures from the 2015 and 2016 business years, like the “Donate your Deposit” initiative, the CEO Ideas Breakfast, and the results of a stakeholder survey.
