Our Group strategy encompasses ten strategic principles that apply to all business units and help to ensure that we can realise our vision of "Long-term success in a competitive business".
We implement the goals of our Group strategy in accordance with our holistic management system Performance Excellence 2.0. We use key indicators in our target matrix to map the status of goal accomplishment. Details are provided under "Value-based management", in the respective sections of the Sustainability Report 2016 and in our Strategy Brochure.
We subject our Group strategy to regular scrutiny. This strategy review, which is carried out on a rotating basis, is taking place at the current time. We expect to present the updated Group strategy for the new strategy cycle 2018 – 2020 in October 2017.
