Organizational anchoring of sustainability

Sustainability can only be given a credible position if it is also structurally anchored within the company and specific responsibilities and areas of action are defined.

As the supreme supervisory body, the Supervisory Board performs its duties with regard to the economic, ecological and social responsibility of the company.

The long-term orientation of AMAG's sustainability strategy is stipulated by the Management Board - which is also responsible for implementing the sustainability targets, and are then incorporated into the management structure with clearly defined areas of responsibility.

The Sustainability department is located in the Management Systems department. Here, data is collected, measures are reviewed and new targets are developed in close cooperation with all specialist departments of the AMAG companies. These are presented by the departmental managers in the Sustainability Committee, which meets once a year, and are then approved and agreed with the Management Board.

The annual sustainability goals are assigned to the six areas of action and two overarching goals identified in the Sustainability Compass.
