Mapping responsibility along the value chain

  • Production and working conditions
  • Compliance with basic and human rights
  • Environmental protection
  • Social commitment
  • Prevention and process management
  • Corruption prevention
In addition to our interdisciplinary approach, one of our strengths is the objective scrutiny of indicators in business ethics, social and ecological corporate areas.
