We take



Forward-looking sustainability

We are developing modern, sustainable products and resource-efficient processes each day around the world to help protect people and the planet, while running a successful business at the same time. We take into account the environmental impact of all our decisions. We are leading the way as an innovative partner for efficient, environmentally friendly solutions and we actively support our customers as they too move forward. In line with our 3P approach, we always try to keep an eye on all key perspectives. Our commitment to sustainability therefore encompasses the 3 dimensions - people, planet and performance.


As a foundation-owned company, CHT is acutely aware of its responsibilities to society and the environment. Our sustainable business strategy ensures we are making contributions along the entire value chain, thereby fulfilling our commitment to employees, society, the preservation of resources and environmental protection. Our principles and goals remain consistent at all our locations worldwide.


The holistic approach of the CHT Group

The "3Ps" of sustainability are the central element of our business activities and must be considered and evaluated in all our activities.

As a foundation-owned company, it is our clear goal to contribute to a sustainable future in which ecological, social and economic aspects are always in harmony with each other. This is why we always think and act in three dimensions, because the three aspects of people, planet and performance are equally important and mutually dependent.

Together with our employees, customers, partners and society, we are actively and holistically committed to sustainable development.
