GrECo’s sustainability strategy comprises a holistic and systematic approach, focusing on involving all stakeholders and raising awareness among employees.

GrECo is a family-owned business that has been committed to sustainability for almost 100 years. We believe that being a family business provides us with the unique advantage of taking a long-term perspective on our efforts. Sustainability is not only a social obligation for us but also a strategic opportunity to create long-term value for our stakeholders. With this mindset, we have consistently pursued this issue in our operations and strive to continue to do so in the future. In 2022, we set ourselves the goal of rethinking our sustainability strategy by focusing on ESG aspects.

Involving all stakeholders

We aim to involve all relevant stakeholders in our ESG strategy development. At the same time, we want to ensure that sustainability is integrated into our corporate strategy and lived by all our employees to create a livable future for all of us. Our sustainability strategy will be continuously monitored, and as we take steps into the future, the success of its implementation will be reported, regularly reviewed and adjusted.

Project implementation and sustainability roadmap

Four focus areas were identified: Risks & Solutions, Environmental Performance, Social Responsibility, and Communications & Reporting. A responsible person was nominated for each area to elaborate on the subtopics and create a sustainability roadmap. This roadmap includes KPIs, personnel and financial efforts as well as a timeframe. The roadmap has already been approved by the Supervisory Board and will be implemented in 2023 and 2024.
