Determined to be Engineering the Foundation for Future Generations

Baettr's Sustainability Report 2023 is now published. With this report, we hope to provide transparency and inspiration by not only documenting our own efforts towards a more sustainable business approach, but also sharing key efforts with the broader industry.

A few years back, we defined Baettr’s Sustainability Strategy 2030 and committed to short- and long-term targets. In 2023, we have redefined the strategic elements, but the core remains the same. We have elevated our sustainability strategy to comply with high-level management attention and ensured that we have this tactical and operational influence locally.

Baettr’s establishment of an environmental, social, and governance structure linked to our sustainability roadmap, is crucial for several reasons. It demonstrates a commitment to responsible business practices and ensures that environmental impact, social considerations, and governance principles are an integral part of decision-making processes. It provides a systematic and organized approach to addressing ESG factors. It enhances our transparency and fosters accountability, as stakeholders can assess the company’s performance against defined sustainability goals.

The foundation of Baettr is built on strong values, and it is our devoted employees who bring these principles to life. Their passion and engagement remain the driving force behind our continuous efforts to shape a more sustainable future.

We are determined to be engineering the foundation for future generations. Our commitment to this purpose is reflected in the initiatives outlined in this report. Our 2023 report showcases how we actively contribute to a sustainable and resilient future where being purpose-driven is not just a slogan for us, it is a guiding principle.

If you see potential opportunities in our Sustainability Report 2023 and the work, we do that can make us all better in the important journey, we invite you to have an opinion and share it with us.
