The Group's strategy is geared to sustainable growth based on long-term earnings. Since the company was founded in 1970, we have combined this long-term business success with economic, social and ecological responsibility. Sustainability is an important component of technotrans' strategy. Sustainable management and a responsible use of limited resources are in line with our strategic goals of winning new customers, opening up new markets, always having sufficient access to financing and positioning ourselves as an attractive employer.
In the following we report on the sustainability aspects relevant to technotrans in accordance with the current statutory provisions on CSR reporting obligations. In this way we would like to inform our stakeholders about the current status and significance of the topic of sustainability in relation to technotrans SE and the Group.
This separate non-financial report complies with our obligation to disclose non-financial information for the 2018 financial year in accordance with the provisions of Sections 289b - e HGB relating to non-financial statements and non-financial reports and Sections 315b - c HGB relating to non-financial group statements and non-financial group reports. Pursuant to Section 315b (1) sentence 2 HGB, this report applies to both the technotrans Group and technotrans SE and therefore corresponds to the joint management report in the Combined Management Report.
The summarised non-financial statement was examined by the Supervisory Board of technotrans SE as part of its monitoring duty with regard to its legality, regularity and appropriateness.
The non-financial statement was prepared on the basis of recognised frameworks such as the German Sustainability Code and the guidelines of the UN Global Compact, which we are committed to complying with. However, the non-financial statement for the 2018 financial year was prepared independently of this on the basis of the statutory provisions.
