Marquard & Bahls Publishes Tenth Sustainability Report

The Marquard & Bahls Group has published its Sustainability Report for the 2019 business year. Under the heading “Creating Momentum,” the group’s tenth Sustainability Report presents a transparent and verifiable account of how matters of sustainability have been put into practice and advanced in the strategic action areas.

The Marquard & Bahls Sustainability Report 2019 was prepared in accordance with the international standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the German Sustainability Code (DNK) and discloses the Group's progress and relevant indicators. It centers on the following action areas: Responsible Corporate Governance, Sustainable Growth, Environmental Protection, Our Employees, Occupational Health & Safety, Corporate Citizenship.

In addition to the ongoing tasks, among other things a Group-wide sustainability dashboard was established in 2019, and, for the first time, a donations target commensurate to net income was defined, all with the aim of anchoring sustainability even more firmly in the company. Another focus was on establishing a stable sustainability organization in the Operating Units, a process that was initiated in 2019. 

Looking ahead to the future, Mark Garrett, CEO Marquard & Bahls, says: "Sustainability is an investment in the future – and a constant goal. In the long term, we will only be successful if we meet the needs of our customers today without compromising the quality of life of future generations or the environment. That is why we focus on permanently integrating sustainability aspects into our current as well as our future business activities."
