Sustainability at Roto
Roto takes a targeted, conscious and customer-oriented focus on the future and establishes sustainability as an important strategic goal. For this reason, a group-wide sustainability strategy was developed and integrated into the existing corporate strategy.
In this way, our long-term corporate vision includes the aspect of fully considering sustainable values as the basis of our entrepreneurial actions.
Based on the defined vision and strategy, long-term fields of action and sustainability topics have been defined, which Roto will specifically implement and consider in all activities and decisions in the future. Roto will therefore continue to work on measures to constantly conduct sustainable corporate actions.
