Our sustainability strategy
Five areas – 10 fields of action – 10 goals: these add up to the DMK Sustainability Programme up to 2020.
Sustainability has a very high priority at the DMK Group. Sustainability is a communal task. It affects all departments and levels of the company, includes collaboration with external stakeholders and involves the entire value chain in the sustainability process. The "DMK 2020 Sustainability Strategy: Our milk. Our world." (DMK 2020 for short) is integrated into our corporate strategy and lays down guidelines up to the year 2020.
We invite you to gain in-depth insights into sustainability at the DMK Group in these pages and to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
DMK published the DMK 2020 Sustainability Strategy in 2013. It focuses on the years to 2020 and encompasses five strategic areas of major relevance: agriculture, environment, milk, team and society. The five areas are underpinned with 10 fields of action, and 10 goals and corresponding actions. DMK oversees their implementation with indicators and annual monitoring. Clear responsibilities bear witness to the Management Team's commitment to sustainable management.
The strategy was developed with the involvement of relevant departments, the Board of Management, Supervisory Board and Advisory Board, DMK's Management Board and the Council for the Future and Sustainability. DMK 2020 originally comprised 60 goals in 20 fields of action; a review in the year 2017/18 revealed that many goals had already been achieved and various tasks had entered the routine practice of the user departments. The DMK 2020 Strategy was therefore updated in 2018 and now concentrates on 10 focal areas.
