In 2014, Sika started the worldwide implementation of the sustainability strategy developed the year before. With the avowed aim of “More Value – Less Impact” the company defined six strategic targets to focus its activities over the coming years on economic performance, sustainable solutions, local communities/society, energy, waste/water and safety.

Main instruments to implement the sustainability strategy globally in the year under review were the “More Value – Less Impact” campaign and the new management and reporting system in line with the G4 Guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative introduced at local level (GRI G4).
