Corporate Responsibility

Think globally, act locally

We not only measure our success based on economic figures, but also on how sustainably and responsibly we act. We see ourselves as part and partner of the society we live in. That’s why we endeavor to act responsibly – for our employees, for society, and in how we treat the environment.

As an international company with more than 85 locations worldwide, our involvement in local programs is especially important to us. We strongly believe that we can achieve the most when we are aware of what is happening around us. So we encourage our employees to get involved in their communities and support local aid initiatives.

Carbon footprint

Since 2008, Bertelsmann has regularly calculated its Group-wide Carbon Footprint and gathered other data on energy, paper, water, wastewater and waste. To do this, each year the Corporate Center collects, analyzes and aggregates the environmental data of the companies and sites of the divisions from all around the world. The results of the Carbon Footprint not only create transparency about impacts on the environment and climate, as well as on Bertelsmann’s environmental performance, but also enables the management to derive measures for improvement.
