Fields of action and control mechanisms

In 2015, the strategic process was revised with the Agenda 2020.

With the company vision...

“The CHT Group, preferred partner and leading reference for sustainable chemical solutions in our worldwide markets”

...we set ourselves an ambitious target which demonstrates our will to contribute to a sustainable future.

The CHT Group focuses especially on these key areas by 2020:

  • Sustainable and profitable business development based on the development of products and services which assist our customers to improve their own sustainability performance.
  • Value-based business management
  • Consistent energy management of worldwide production facilities
  • Safety and health management
  • Global trend of lightweight construction - develop additives for textile concrete and green carbon fibre
  • Reduce the consumption of resources, especially of raw materials and water

We monitor our progress towards these goals using the following the assessment tools:

  • Definition of commitments and KPI of sustainability goals
  • Periodic monitoring of issues and targets by the internal sustainability management with Steering Board


Sustainability at management level

The sustainability management was implemented within the company by establishing a steering board and a sustainability coordinator. The steering board is responsible for decisions on sustainability topics. Due to our medium-sized corporate structure sustainability is managed by the highest executive level. All projects are assisted by members of the second executive level.

The steering board accompanies projects and their progress as well as the individual measurements within the framework of the sustainability commitment of the CHT Group and makes the necessary decisions. Through a regular communication of our sustainability activities to all stakeholders such as our staff, the supervisory body as well as our business partners and NGOs the board contributes to a clear positioning of our company as reliable and trustworthy partner in the market.
