Sustainability governance

Within BLS, strategic sustainability officers coordinate the activities of all business units. Together with the Executive Board and the Board of Directors, they are responsible for monitoring progress and setting targets in the area of sustainability. Persons responsible for sustainability have also been defined in all business divisions.
Through this holistic governance structure, BLS ensures that sustainability is not just seen as an isolated initiative, but is a central component of the company's overall development and direction.
