What motivates us

Sustainability

Sustainable economic activity has been incorporated into our corporate culture as a business objective for more than 30 years.

At the same time, it is not just a matter of environmental protection but also climate protection and conservation of nature as well as social responsibility.

Our objective is to efficiently reduce the negative effects on people and nature along the chain of economic added value. In order to achieve that, we developed a Corporate Responsibility (CR) strategy 2020 in the year 2012, which applies to all corporate companies of the Otto Group. The deep roots in our self-image as a corporate group, which acts responsibly, enables a sustainable orientation for us.
