About this report
As an internationally active specialty chemicals company, we want to communicate openly and transparently. For this reason, a report on sustainable corporate governance activities and performance is important to us.
This Sustainability Report has been prepared in accordance with the standards of the Kern option of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), taking into account the reporting requirements of the UN Global Compact as corresponding sets of rules. It presents our worldwide sustainability commitment for 2022 with regard to the three dimensions of economy, ecology and society. Reporting has not been carried out according to the Taxonomy Principles nor according to the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, as CHT is still exempt from both reporting requirements.
In addition, we want to stress how the sustainability management of the CHT Group contributes to the company’s long-term economic success. Moreover, the contents of this report serve as “Communication on Progress” in the sense of the UN Global Compact principles. As a member of the UN Global Compact since 2016 we have aligned our economic actions with the UN Global Compact principles and with the Responsible Care® initiative of the chemical industry.
The report presents the fields of activity in the group’s sustainability management, which include the sustainability goals defined in our corporate strategy. All group companies are included in the strategy, reporting and sustainability management, includes values determined for this purpose, such as workforce metrics, energy and water consumption, and emissions and waste. Any cases of divergence will be highlighted.
The period covered in this sustainability report is January 1 to December 31, 2022 and is in line with the fiscal year of the CHT Group. The editorial deadline was May 31, 2023. Additional information and qualitative statements have been taken into account up to the deadline. The sustainability report of the CHT Group was published for the first time in 2014.
