Management & Steering
Sustainability is anchored at senior management level in the DEUTZ Group, and overall responsibility lies with the Chairman of the Board of Management.
The SDC, which comprises the heads of the relevant departments and the individuals responsible for the key sustainability topics, provides the information that is used as the basis for making decisions related to corporate sustainability in the DEUTZ Group. Guided by the Group’s Investor Relations function and the Quality Management team, the SDC sets non-financial targets, creates action plans for achieving them, and discusses the continuous improvement of sustainability efforts across the Group at regular intervals.
Responsibility for implementing and monitoring strategic initiatives lies either with the relevant departmental heads or the individuals nominated by them. In view of the fact that the DEUTZ Group is highly decentralized, they are supported in their work by local representatives at the subsidiaries.
As part of the preventive risk management approach, internal monitoring and reporting to the Board of Management on the implementation status of the sustainability strategy take place each quarter. The objective is to identify risks that might jeopardize the achievement of the targets at an early stage and to modify the action plan if necessary.
