STRATEGY & GOVERNANCE

To promote sustainability throughout our company and embed it effectively, we created a sustainability governance structure in 2020 that includes the role of Group Sustainability Officer (GSO). Additionally, we developed and approved a sustainability strategy.

OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE UNITED NATIONS 2030 AGENDA

CHG-MERIDIAN wants to be part of the solution to overcoming the challenges of our time. We want to actively shape the path toward sustainable development. Therefore, we are playing our part in achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs) and consider them a key factor in future business success.

THE UNITED NATION’S SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are the centerpiece of the United Nation’s Agenda 2030, the action plan for a better and more sustainable global future adopted in 2015. The 17 SDGs and 169 targets set uniform standards and formulate concrete goals for global challenges such as climate change, species extinction, poverty, and hunger. They are aimed at governments, businesses, and society. The goals to be achieved by 2030 offer the most comprehensive vision for sustainable development.

The sustainability strategy is based on the goals of our corporate strategy and contains key company-specific action areas:

  • Labor rights and human rights
  • Business ethics
  • Environment
  • Sustainable procurement
     

From these we derive our sustainability targets and corresponding operational measures. The sustainability strategy is reviewed annually and adapted to our stakeholders' requirements.

Our Sustainability Goals

We have set ourselves specific goals for our four action areas up to 2025 and have already partially achieved them. 

"In 2020, we laid the foundations with our sustainability strategy. Since then, we have steadily expanded our activities in 2021 with carbonZER0 and our first ESG-linked funding."
Matthias Steybe, Group Sustainability Officer, CHG-MERIDIAN
