Proud of our Roots

We are proud of our 115-year heritage. Just as we founded our company on strong values, we are continuing our sustainability journey with those same guiding principles.

Integrity, respect for people and human rights are fundamental to who we are and what we believe. Growing from a small family business to a diversified global enterprise brings great responsibility. We believe that our ethics, governance and supply chain are at the “root” of our sustainability commitment, because holding ourselves to the highest standards has been and will continue to be the backbone of our success.

This includes ensuring that all business partners in our supply chain adhere to fair labor practices and share our view of responsibility. Furthermore, this includes ensuring transparency, doing what is right and our part as citizens of the world.

Topics we focus on

  • Laws & Regulations
  • Ethical Principles
  • Human Rights
  • Integrity and Respect for Others
  • Transparency of Supply Chain
  • Anti-Corruption
  • Data Privacy
