Sustainability strategy – in harmony with our values

Our sustainability management system and the resulting measures we take are based on the company's sustainability strategy, which was defined and introduced in fiscal 2014/2015. In turn, this strategy is crucially underpinned and guided by Wincor Nixdorf's fundamental values, which are expressed in our vision, mission statement, and corporate values.

In this context, we have reviewed, evaluated, and modified each aspect of our sustainability agenda – products and suppliers, environmental protection, employees, and social responsibility.

Our management approaches are derived from our sustainability strategy and provide for its detailed implementation. With regard to products and suppliers, environmental protection, human resources, and corporate responsibility, we highlight why certain aspects and their impacts are of fundamental importance for Wincor Nixdorf and its stakeholders. We focus on these key aspects in our sustainability reports.
