For Progroup, the issues of sustainability and environmental protection are key elements of the corporate strategy. “Progroup is inherently sustainable because we are part of the circular economy. Our whole business model is geared towards doing business sustainably. As a family company, we have our eyes set firmly on the future and think very much about the generations to come. Our sustainability strategy focuses on the long term and reflects our corporate strategy. We take our responsibility seriously,” emphasises CEO Jürgen Heindl.
Transparency and commitment
The report documents the key issues for Progroup in relation to sustainability, the commitment to climate protection and the company's responsible approach to tackling the challenges of climate change. It sheds light on the economic, ecological and social aspects of sustainability in all of Progroup's divisions and sets out clear objectives through to 2030. These include reducing CO2 emissions, water consumption and the use of raw materials as well as boosting equal opportunities and improving occupational safety. The company is therefore specifically helping to implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Consistently implementing goals
To consistently implement the ambitious sustainability goals, the role of sustainability manager was created at Progroup in 2021. This person coordinates all sustainability activities and advises all divisions of the company on the specific requirements. In the future, Progroup will report on progress and developments in relation to sustainability once a year. The company is therefore making clear commitments and ensuring transparent reporting.
