CR management & organisation

Corporate responsibility in management dialogue

The Holding Company places its focus where it has leverage: In managing the investment portfolio. Haniel lays down guidelines and principles for CR management.

Rules of procedure which set out the framework for collaboration on the basis of statutory provisions stipulate that the Holding Company be involved in the development of the divisions’ CR strategies. This ensures that each company – taking into account its respective size and maturity – prioritises the CR issues which are relevant to it on the basis of stakeholder expectations, develops a CR programme with objectives and measures tailored to its respective business model, and implements these by establishing a CR management system.

At the management and departmental levels, there are Corporate Responsibility officers and a regular CR dialogue between the Holding Company and the other divisions. In addition, the Holding Company organises the Group CR Round Table, where CR experts exchange informa­tion and experience.
