Corporate Responsibility

Creating value in many ways - for the market, for people, for the environment and for the community.

We are there for you!

Prof. Dr. Norbert Winkeljohann

Dear reader,

The scenarios describing the social and ecological consequences of global change are extremely varied. Megatrends such as climate change, increasing scarcity of raw materials and demographic developments present enormous challenges for us all and harbour both risks and opportunities at the same time.

As an auditing and advisory company that is both a market leader and future-oriented, the opportunities that we have to shape changes in the community in a responsible manner primarily derive from our professional expertise and the services which we provide.

In this manner, we are able to contribute to providing a basis for the existence and economic performance of future generations. In this connection, our current corporate responsibility report is particularly concerned with the question as to how the community at large benefits from our services and what impacts derive from them.

We point out which benefits are provided by auditing services in addition to the control and audit of accounting records and reports, why tax advisory services help to provide a necessary balance between private and government interests, and how consultancy services can support and promote the process of change.

In addition, we questioned a number of our clients to determine their expectations of us in our role as an auditing and advisory company in connection with sustainable development. You can read their answers in the following pages, which provide an overview of the main activities, objectives and key figures that are connected to our responsibility as a business.
