The Gira Sustainability Committee It is in particularly important at the beginning of development and implementation of a sustainability strategy to have the right impetus and effective orientation. The Gira Sustainability Committee was formed expressly to this purpose. It is made up of representatives from various areas of the company. It therefore includes a cross-section of different perspectives and competencies. The Committee serves as a central control and communication hub, its members act as ambassadors and multipliers of the topic in the company until all employees have picked up on and internalised the topic and it has become a normal part of work processes and everyday activities. The Committee identifies the fields of action and works together with the specialist departments and Executive Management to define the respective goals. It communicates the planned content and measures to employees and looks at their feedback, ideas and suggestions. In this way we will progress more quickly in this common process.
