Goals and Outlook
Goals & Outlook
Sustainability has been firmly rooted in our business processes for many years. Sustainable development means balancing economic, ecological and social factors in everything we do. The fact that we have made sustainability one of our strategic goals emphasizes its importance. As an innovative chemical company, WACKER makes a vital contribution to improving the quality of life around the world. In the future, we want to continue developing and supplying solutions that meet our rigorous demands – creating added value for our customers and shareholders, and growing sustainably.
Sustainability also lies at the heart of our strategic medium-term plan for the WACKER Group through 2020, which we presented at the Capital Market Day in October 2016. One of the five strategic goals reads: “Focusing even more strongly on sustainability.”
Our strategic alignment is based on three pillars to achieve a sensible balance for the measures we take and the goals we set. In this regard, we take account of a variety of interest groups, first and foremost our customers and employees, as well as our shareholders, hence the name of our program: SustainaBalance®.
