Since 1668, science has been at the heart of everything we do. It drives the discoveries we make and the technologies we create. Our work is fueled by our belief in science as a force for good. We work to enhance the human experience and create more joyful and sustainable ways to live. In 2018, we realigned our CR strategy, focusing more heavily on generating sustainable added value for ourselves as a company and for society. To achieve this, we are taking a shared value approach. In revising our strategy, we modified our three strategic spheres of activity to bring them more in line with our businesses. Our focus areas are now “Global Health”, “Sustainable Solutions” and “Broad Minds”, and our activities are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Our 2018 CR Report covers the year 2018. It was a year in which we celebrated a major anniversary, marking 350 years in pursuit of curiosity, science and technology – the great driving forces behind progress. This report engages readers on an interactive level, using a variety of innovative digital formats such as clickable, animated graphics, crosslinks between topics, quizzes, information pop-ups, and videos.
We have prepared our CR Report in accordance with the GRI Standards: “Comprehensive” option. Moreover, we have taken into consideration the requirements of the capital market for assessing companies’ sustainability performance. Through our 2018 CR Report, we meet the requirements for a combined separate non-financial report as defined in the CSR Directive Implementation Act that took effect in Germany in 2017. The CR Report also documents the progress we have made in implementing the principles of the United Nations Global Compact (Communication on Progress) and meets the criteria of the German Sustainability Code (DNK).
