Sustainability at Bechtle.
Bechtle began taking a systematic approach to sustainability as early as 2011, placing a premium on authenticity and credibility, and taking an initial stance through the Bechtle Sustainability Code – a set of principles published in 2013 to guide responsible and forward-thinking corporate management. Between September 2020 and August 2021, the Bechtle Sustainability Strategy 2030 was developed, which replaced the Sustainability Code. It provides answers to the question of what Bechtle wants to achieve in terms of economical, ecological, and social aspects by the year 2030 – our big-picture benchmark for corporate responsibility across the Bechtle Group.

Sustainability Strategy 2030.
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.

Achieving the goal together.
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 2023, the Bechtle Group once again received the silver medal.
We believe that responsibility and credibility count. That is why it is important to us to report openly and transparently in our annual sustainability reporting. The 2019 Sustainability Report was prepared for the first time in accordance with the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI Standards). From fiscal 2022, all sustainability indicators will be part of the annual report.
