Statement by the CEO

The sooner we face up to the climate crisis and social challenges as a company and entrepreneurs, the more we will be able to shape our own adaptation policies.

Therefore, AT&S is committed to sustainability in all its facets.

Stakeholders increasingly rely on sustainability as a benchmark in business valuation, and investors require credible evidence of our commitment for their investment decisions. The high relevance of sustainable activities and decisions as well as the company’s strategic orientation are reflected in solid ratings by ESG rating agencies.

We are convinced that we are more effective as a society.

AT&S relies on strong partnerships and is committed to important international frameworks such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI).

The impact of AT&S’s activities has been assessed for all 17 goals and 169 sub-goals of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As a result, the following nine SDGs have been rated relevant for the company: SDG 4, SDG 6, SDG 8, SDG 9, SDG 10, SDG 12, SDG 13, SDG 16 and SDG 17.
