Applicable international and national regulations form the framework for B&C Group´s and B&C Private Foundation´s sustainability management activities, in particular the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the European Green Deal, as well as the guidelines and orders stemming from them. ESG stands for environment, social and governance. These three pillars represent a key measure for B&C when it comes to assessing companies’ sustainability performance.
