‘We are pleased to present our third annual report. As well as ensuring that the business is challenged to maintain its core values and responsible business characteristics, the board has become more actively engaged in providing guidance and expertise.

‘The Responsible Business Board is helping us in our continuous improvement process and is kindly challenging us. They provide an external look and sometimes question topics that could be taken for granted internally. They also encourage us when they think we are on the right path. All this challenge and support is extremely precious for the business to success and an acceleration factor in our action plans.'
