  • Dear stakeholders,

    After a very turbulent year in various areas, the challenges in 2022 are unfortunately not over yet. We can influence some developments and unfortunately we cannot. As an organisation, we will have to be flexible and that requires a lot of our adaptability. Fortunately, we have proven to be a resilient company and we can respond to a changing environment and society. We will of course do everything we can this year to continue to support the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact and to let our organization play an active role in improving Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption.
