The sustainability competence center, in which all relevant departments and main business units are represented, manages and discusses topics and projects related to sustainability across divisions and business units. However, the individual departments and business units are still responsible for the content. Coordination and operational management are carried out by the department of sustainability management and research of the future, which is part of the corporate strategy.
