Raw Materials

Raw materials are the planet’s natural resources and form the basis of nearly all commercial products.

Depending on their origin, method of extraction or way they are processed, raw materials can have a negative impact on people and the environment. We therefore also have a responsibility to source them in a socially acceptable and environmentally friendly way. This is a prerequisite for having responsibly produced products.

To ensure that we proceed in a structured and targeted way, we have developed a comprehensive raw materials strategy that is based on the four pillars. In this way, we are committed to making the procurement of raw materials defined as critical more sustainable by 2025.

1) Understending impacts

2) Establishing standard

3) Promoting alternatives

4) Driving change
