Stoneweg's ESG strategy

Our ESG strategy focuses on three core commitments which encompass the areas that have the greatest overlap between what matters to stakeholders and the foundational tenets of the business, and that we have determined as strategic priorities within the environmental, social and governance topics. Our full ESG framework comprises 15 categories covering key Stoneweg’s material sustainability responsibilities, risks and opportunities.

The core commitments and their supporting KPIs and targets represent the issues where Stoneweg can create the most significant impact due to our company’s position, size and reach. This also makes them critical to the success of our business strategy.

With regard to the structure of the Group we have adopted global ESG policies covering the material topics and systematically disseminated to the strategies when relevant. To sharpen our ESG implementation, specific strategies and portfolios are adopting distinct policy which align with the Group goals and objectives.

We have implemented ESG Governance according to various levels of responsibilities and duties, including a Group ESG Committee and several sub-committees and working groups.
