At Greiner, we are trying to become a more sustainable company in an interdisciplinary way across all divisions. The interaction between different disciplines provides the necessary expertise and the involvement of our Executive Board brings the necessary attention. This way, we make sure that steady progress is made.
The Executive Board of Greiner AG is the top decision-making body for economical, ecological and social questions – as well as for all strategic decisions concerning the range of sustainability topics. It makes decisions about the direction of the company strategy and is directly involved when it comes to implementation measures for our Plastics for Life strategy.
Besides our Executive Board, the Greiner Sustainability Board plays a key role. On this board, technical experts and executive employees of the company’s headquarters develop strategic specifications in cooperation with our CEO. The Sustainability Board meets once per quarter, assesses the progress and monitors the general sustainability measures.
The Sustainability Board receives recommendations from five working groups, who work on the subject areas derived from our materiality analysis: “Employees”, “Environment and Resources”, “Products”, “Supply Chain” and “Social Commitment”.
The Executive Board, Sustainability Board and the specialist level in the working groups are supported by an Executive Department for Sustainability, which is assigned directly to the CEO and reports to him. This ensures efficient sustainability management over all company divisions and all sites worldwide.
