"We optimize our value-adding processes, especially those aspects that improve environmental sustainability." In our sustainability programme, we have set clear goals to reduce CO2 emissions, energy and water consumption, waste volume as well as paper consumption."

The Business Area Tobacco is meeting the challenges of the future: environmental protection has been one of the company's guiding principles for many years. This is not distinct from other goals, but is instead an integral component of the long-term corporate strategy. Striving for the best possible product quality also includes using resources sparingly. This applies not only to our production processes, but also to products. The aim of environmental policy is to strike a balance between environmental protection and business efficiency. Almost all value-adding processes in the company have potential for sustainability activities, as they affect the ecosystem in some way. From a global perspective, climate protection is the highest ecological priority followed by resource conservation.
