2016 Hevert Sustainability Report Published in Compliance with the GRI Standard for the First Time

The just released 2016 Hevert Sustainability Report reveals which specific goals and measures are hiding behind the sustainable development strategy of Hevert. For the first time, this report was written in compliance with the international reporting standard for sustainability reports issued by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

"In recent months, we have invested a lot of time in finding out where we as a company can more sustainably manage and support on the one hand, and how we can better and more transparently communicate the results of this work on the other," explains Mathias Hevert, Managing Director of Hevert-Arzneimittel. "When generating the report, we therefore for the first time used the international guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative – the "gold standard" of CSR reporting – and the publication of the report was slightly delayed as a result."

"We want to motivate our partners and other companies in their efforts to achieve greater sustainably as well," continues Mathias Hevert. “The aim of our family business is to have a beacon function in regards to environmental protection, sustainable business practices, and acting responsibly with respect to employees and the community. This report is an important part of this process."

By generating the sustainability report and basing it on international standards, the medium-sized family company makes a voluntary contribution that far exceeds legal requirements. Currently, only listed companies as well as banks and insurance companies with an average of more than 500 employees in the business year, a net turnover of more than €40 million, or total assets of more than €20 million are required to generate a sustainability report. The guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative are generated as a result of an international dialog with representatives of business, labor unions, society, and science. Their help and the legal reporting requirement are intended to support and promote more sustainable and responsible corporate behavior.
