SIEGBURG, Germany—Siegwerk has taken its commitment to sustainability to a new level.
The ink manufacturer has published its first ever Sustainability Report, based on the interna-
tional GRI standard, which lays a new basis for evaluating its sustainable actions.

materiality analysis of relevant fields of activity conducted by an
international team of Siegwerk executives together with Chemie3,
the German chemical industry’s sustainability initiative. A new
mission statement, which in turn will align with Siegwerk’s sus-
tainability strategy in the future, was drafted based on the results.
The mission statement incorporates four dimensions:
• Customers as partners, innovation as driver
• Employees as the key to success
• Sustainable economic success
• Responsibility for environment and society
The company views dealing in extensive depth with these issues as vital for lasting profitable
growth. At Siegwerk, sustainability is interpreted as an attitude in line with the company’s
“Ink, Heart & Soul” philosophy and is put into practice every day.
