Disclosure on Management Approach.

Aspect: Materials

G4-DMA

Management Approach

In all our endeavors, we attempt to efficiently utilize materials and recycle as much as possible. Where feasible, we use recycled materials (in packaging, for instance). Overall, material consumption is not a major concern for us. There are few opportunities to use recycled material in our production processes because our business model puts us at the start of the value chain. We therefore do not collect such data at the Group-level. Individual data and measures are reported under the respective chapters.
