We believe that only by combining social responsibility, ecological balance, political participation and economic capability will current and future generations be able to lead secure and dignified lives.
Conflicting goals and interests have to be resolved fairly among all stakeholders. Negotiation processes of this kind must be professionally designed if development is to be sustainable.

We perform our tasks in keeping with these convictions and are committed to upholding the values enshrined in the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany.
In particular, we:
◎ advocate respect for human rights, equal opportunities and integrity;

◎ promote a market-oriented, ecological and social economic order and observe the principles of corporate responsibility in our work.
