The strategy of the group focuses on sustained growth led by long-term profit. Ever since the company’s founding in 1970, we have combined this long-term corporate success with economic, social and ecological responsibility. Sustainability is an important building block for technotrans, because sustainable business also helps it unlock new markets and position itself as an attractive employer.
In accordance with the latest legislation on CSR reporting, we report in the following on sustainability topics that serve to provide a better understanding of the business performance and future development of our group of companies.
Pursuant to Section 289b (1) of the German Commercial Code, we are not currently obliged to prepare a non-financial declaration in the Management Report of technotrans AG. To that extent, this report in the Combined Management Report is a non-financial group declaration within the meaning of Section 315b of the German Commercial Code.
The legality, correctness and appropriateness of the non-financial group declaration were examined by the Supervisory Board of technotrans AG.
By way of a guide, in preparing the non-financial declaration we made reference to recognised frameworks such as the German Sustainability Code and the guidelines of the UN Global Compact, which we have committed to uphold. However the non-financial declaration for the 2017 financial year has been prepared independently of these, on the basis of the statutory requirements.
