We document and review our progress in the area of sustainability on a regular basis by continuously collecting and evaluating any sustainability-related data. Among other things, we collect data on consumption and emissions, but also data resulting from staff surveys or customer satisfaction surveys. Initially, this data is published internally in order to inform those involved and to manage the appropriate measures to be taken. This data also serves as a basis for our external reporting.
