WE TAKE CARE | We take over responsibility

Our comprehension of sustainability

We understand sustainable management and action not only as an obligation towards future generations, but also as an opportunity for a successful long-term strategy for the future.

Therefore, in our company strategy we combine economic success of the CHT Group with social, societal and ecological responsibility.

As a foundation-owned group of companies, we also consider sustainability and social responsibility to be part of our tradition, which is the foundation for our daily actions as a global business enterprise.

On the following pages, you will learn more about our sustainable thinking and actions. In addition, our annually published sustainability report contains up-to-date facts and figures.

It manages the projects and their progress as well as the individual measures within the framework of the sustainability commitment and makes any necessary decisions. In addition to the regular communication of sustainability-related activities to all our stakeholders, such as our employees, the supervisory board as well as our business partners and NGOs, the steering board contributes to the clear positioning of our company as a reliable and trustworthy partner in the market.
