To determine the priorities for sustainability Bucher Industries initiated a dialogue with customers, employees, management, shareholders and investors. In this process, Bucher Industries applied the guidelines laid down by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Evaluation of the personal interviews and online surveys yielded the topics categorised as “very important” in the matrix.

The Group will focus on the following topics in the years ahead and determine specific measures during the current year: customer health and safety; the ability to attract and retain diverse and highly qualified employees; the environmental impact of products and services; avoiding corruption and complying with competition law.

The following documents can be downloaded from the Bucher: the Sustainability Report 2015 and the materiality matrix .
