A responsible approach to people and natural resources has been an integral part of BayWa’s corporate strategy for generations.
This conviction comes from BayWa’s cooperative roots, shaped by partnership, stability and reliable planning. The environment and the climate, employees, the market, quality of life − BayWa has not only set strategic sustainability targets in these fields of action, it has also defined how to handle global opportunities and risks. Back in 2016, the company aligned its aims with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Sustainability is not only a mission for us, but also an understanding of who we are. In order to drive sustainability forwards in the future as well, we have strategically anchored the topic in our company by installing a sustainability management system. We have defined four strategic scopes of activity which bundle existing actions and form an umbrella for future projects.
BayWa unites people, knowledge and industries with sustainable innovation
In 2020, BayWa was named one of "50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders" by the United Nations and Bloomberg. The film published for this purpose shows how BayWa, as a traditional conglomerate, is driving the agricultural, energy and building materials sectors forward through sustainable innovations.
