Cultivating sustainability is the title of the Bechtle Sustainability Report 2021. And that’s exactly what we are doing: constantly developing and strategically advancing the topic of sustainability. For the first time, we are aligning our content with the Sustainability Strategy 2030 published in the reporting year. It condenses the very thing we have been pursuing with growing verve—taking responsibility for today, for a tomorrow that we are happy to pass to the generations to come. The Bechtle Sustainability Report is also based on the GRI standards and includes the non-financial group report (NFE) of Bechtle AG.
50 new fully electric vehicles VW ID.3 were added to the Bechtle fleet in October 2020. At the same time, Bechtle is creating new charging infrastructure for its electric fleet. The Bechtle Group will count some 300 charging points at the end of the year.
With the Sustainability Strategy, Bechtle defined which goals are to be pursued in the company from an ecological, economic and social point of view. It refers to the UN Sustainable Development Goals—SDGs—and comprises four strategic fields of action that are particularly relevant for Bechtle: Ethical business practices, environment, people, and digital future. Each field of action is backed by a programme that includes goals, milestones and operational measures.
We can only achieve a sustainable development of our society together. Bechtle has also acknowledged its responsibility and signed the UN Global Compact and the WIN Charter. We have our sustainability performance regularly audited by EcoVadis. In 2021, the Bechtle Group once again received the silver medal.
