Berentzen-Gruppe Aktiengesellschaft has published its voluntary Sustainability Report for the 2023 financial year. This is already the seventh sustainability report published by the corporate group.

"With this report, we are continuing our long-standing commitment to transparent communication with our various stakeholder groups", explains Ralf Brühöfner, CFO of Berentzen-Gruppe Aktiengesellschaft.
In view of the current global challenges relating to climate change, the energy crisis and spiralling costs, Brühöfner emphasises the important role that companies have to play in promoting a sustainable future: "Our seventh sustainability report highlights our commitment and our numerous initiatives to help overcome these challenges."
In the 2023 financial year, the Berentzen Group once again bundled its sustainability activities in the three fields of action People, Planet and Products. "Last year, for example, we pursued a large number of measures in our People area of action.

For example, we have taken our occupational health management to a new level by introducing a digital health platform. In addition, we as a corporate group have been a proud member of the Vision Zero occupational safety campaign since last year," explains Brühöfner.

The Berentzen Group also achieved a great deal in other areas in the 2023 financial year. For example, the codes of conduct and marketing codes were updated, a new digital whistleblower system was introduced across the Group and a significant expansion of the existing photovoltaic systems was carried out.

The success of the initiatives is reflected not only in various awards for family friendliness, but also in the positive feedback from employees and applicants. "In addition, our commitment was once again recognised last year by the renowned EcoVadis rating. We were honoured with a gold medal for the third time in a row and were able to improve on our result from the previous year," says Brühöfner. This means that the Berentzen Group is now among the top two per cent of the more than 100,000 companies rated by EcoVadis worldwide.

"Sustainability is not just a trend for us, but a very important aspect of our business decisions. We are determined to further intensify and optimise our activities in this area. In the course of the 2024 financial year, we will further develop our existing sustainability strategy and set new, ambitious targets for the coming years," concludes Brühöfner.
