Biesterfeld AG, Hamburg, presents a second sustainability report following the first one last year. This report enables group-wide benchmarking of activities in economic, environmental and social areas from now on.
As a distributor of chemicals and plastics, Biesterfeld values safe and resource-friendly handling of its products, as well as of energy, water and other raw materials. In the second year, numerous additional measures in the area of sustainability were able to be implemented, and standards established. “For us, the creation of a central sustainability management is both an obvious step and a commitment. In the financial year 2015 we were able to extend the defined standards to the first international locations in Italy and the United Kingdom,” explains Khojesta Rahbari, Sustainability Manager of the Biesterfeld Group.
Comprehensively and clearly, the report describes the activities of the Biesterfeld Group in the area of sustainability. It demonstrates how the ten principles of the UN Global Compact are being adhered to in the areas of human rights, labour norms, conservation and the fight against corruption. In the sustainability report, Biesterfeld AG utilises the guidelines of the independent Global Reporting Initiative, which also certified the report. This ensures that the values and measures are set out comprehensively.
