WIN-Charta – sustainability as an obligation
WIN-CHARTA was created as a module for companies applying the principles of sustainable management. As part of the overall sustainability strategy of the German state of Baden-Württemberg, it is based on commitment, self-initiative and external communication. As a subscriber to the WIN-Charta, Rössle & Wanner is committed to complying with the twelve sustainability principles defined by the Charta and to continue to optimize sustainability. As one of the first companies to sign, Rössle & Wanner also acts as a role model to other companies due to the public image of the WIN-Charta. To combine the experience and knowledge of committed companies, the Wirtschaftsinitiative Nachhaltigkeit (WIN) (business initiative for sustainability) introduced its sustainability strategy in February 2010, which Rössle & Wanner adopted from the beginning as a founding member. Pioneers for sustainable management work together with the Baden-Württemberg state government to develop and drive key factors for success. They focus on mutual exchange, common strategies and cooperation projects.
