Dear shareholders and business partners,
In this CSR report we disclose for the fourth time the aspects of sustainability that are of particular significance within our company. For us, the term CSR, that is corporate social responsibility, encompasses more than environmental protection measures. It is much rather a question of acting in a sustainable manner and taking responsibility for our company’s impact on society. In view of this, our CSR activities are oriented toward a long-term contribution rather than short-term effects.
Last year we defined our first targets and measures in this context. You can read about our progress in this year’s report. At the same time, our work on the various issues also made clear to us that we must set priorities in a meaningful way: What are the areas in which a little effort already goes a long way? And which issues are of such minor significance in view of the overall picture that we can defer them so as to direct our efforts toward more essential aspects?
Further development of our materiality analysis endorsed an even more focused approach. In the 2017 reporting year we asked our internal and external stakeholders; that is employees, managers and Works Council, but also customers and suppliers, partners and the general public, what issues they considered important in relation to First Sensor. This year we took an additional question into consideration: What issue, having an effect on the company itself or caused by the company, would have the greatest impact? This enabled us to identify the really relevant issues even more clearly and thus to concentrate on them, both in this report and in other respects.
When preparing this report for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2018, we were once again guided by the format of the German Sustainability Code. However, as in the previous year, we also worked within the framework of the GRI standard; some references in the text therefore refer to this. The CSR report by First Sensor is published together with the Annual Report 2018. Nevertheless, it is conceived as a self-contained report, which makes no reference to passages of the annual report. On the one hand, this complies with the format of the German Sustainability Code and, on the other, it makes the report coherent for readers.
In this report we provide an insight into our actions and into the responsibility we have assumed: responsibility based on perseverance, responsibility with a focus on the really important issues and responsibility for the things which can make a difference.
