Actively pursuing sustainability for MGI
It is undisputed that we all have to do our part to create a more sustainable world. In early 2020, MGI therefore initiated a comprehensive analysis pertaining to the sustainability efforts of the Group. We were supported in this undertaking by imug consulting, a German sustainability expert consulting group, which analyzed the current status of effort. Starting from this base, clear guidelines for action were established and are constantly developed by the board and management of MGI. During the analysis, the most relevant aspects for MGI were identified, resulting in MGI’s five sustainability priorities.
„It is undeniable that sustainability is highly important for the society as a whole and we want to do our part while running a successful business. We are convinced that this is not only possible, but mutually dependent.“
Remco Westermann, CEO of MGI
Our Sustainability Structure
To ensure that sustainability is an integral part of our daily operations, we have set up various working groups and committees to deal with different sustainability topics and created a dedicated structure to ensure that sustainability aspects are incorporated into processes at all levels.
The Sustainability Board consists of the members of the MGI C-Level and the Board of Directors. It decides on the targets for the five sustainability priorities and monitors the achievement of the targets.
The Sustainability Committee consists of experts from various fields and the top management of each segment. It formulates the targets for the five sustainability priorities which are adopted by the Sustainability board and defines strategies for achieving the targets, which are then executed by the Working Groups. It also monitors compliance with the standards set.
The Working Groups are responsible for implementing and executing the strategies to achieve the goals in their respective area of work and are supported by the coordinators, especially for cross-thematic projects.
