Welcome Message

Dear Reader,

 


At Kuehne + Nagel, our day-to-day efforts are dedicated to deliver to the progress of people and organisations. Creating long-term sustainable value for our customers and their clients, business partners and employees is deeply rooted in our foundation.

 

All our business activities focus on driving our customers’ value chains through people, expertise and technology. Our sustainability ambition is an essential part of this aspiration.

 

By leveraging our technological know-how and IT systems, we develop solutions such as the carbon calculators for accounting and monitoring CO2 emissions. Joint sustainability projects make sure to achieve the ambitious targets of all stakeholders. All our supply chain operations and related innovations support our customers in achieving their sustainability goals.

 

Our sustainability initiatives are created and implemented by our qualified employees. Extensive certification programmes ensure high quality execution. A comprehensive training concept emphasises our environmental and sustainability targets as well as a safe and secure workplace.

 

We strive to set high business standards and to ensure that our people receive comprehensive and meaningful trainings to operate in compliance with our policies and guidelines, such as the Code of Conduct. We continuously enhance our Ethics and Compliance Programme with various initiatives including Anti-Trust and Anti-Bribery trainings. It forms an integral part of Kuehne + Nagel’s culture and business policy. 

 

We continuously develop our people at all levels. For instance, with the Global Talent Development Programme, we offer intensive training to participants from all regions who we believe do have the potential to become future leaders of Kuehne + Nagel.

 

We are highly committed to further enhance our sustainability efforts as an integral part of our business activities. We will focus on decreasing the frequency of lost-time incidents, continuously reducing the environmental impact of supply chain operations, and launching sustainable, innovative solutions for the long-term value of our customers.

 

Sincerely, 

Dr. Detlef Trefzger

CEO
