Clips about the Haniel values

Our history as a family enterprise that has been successful for centuries shapes our long-term thoughts and actions.

We create value

Our sustained value-enhancing corporate management ensures our economic success – which both obliges and enables us to create social value.

We assume responsibility

We consider it our duty to bring economic, environmental and social objectives into harmony.

We act in an entrepreneurial manner

We stand out at all corporate levels by acting in a forward-looking manner with a pronounced desire to create.

We shape change

We see change as an opportunity for sustained growth – but instead of allowing ourselves to be led by events, we actively shape markets.

We support our staff

To enable our staff to contribute their creativity and skills to corporate success in the best possible manner, we both challenge and encourage them by means of trusting dialogue.
