Sustainability at CWS-boco


Dear reader,

following last year’s Sustainability Report 2015, we are now delighted to introduce the Intermediate Report 2016. We hope that it will provide you with an idea of how the fundamental areas of our commitment to sustainability have progressed. The Report focuses on the nine companies in the CWS-boco Group with the highest turnovers over the course of 2015.

The indicators we have chosen make one thing clear: 2015 was a very successful year! True to our motto “Handle with Care”, we managed to save a high number of kilometres and many litres of petrol in the field of logistics and service through intelligent route optimisation. We have also made significant progress in terms of sustainable customer relationships. Last, but by no means least, our first workwear collection produced with Fairtrade-certified cotton allows us to strengthen our approach in this segment too. Sustainability does not by any means translate to going without something or imposing restriction.

On the contrary, in fact: Sustainability is far more about further development, evolution and greater opportunities. That’s why we as a company are tirelessly aiming to make continuous progress and outdo ourselves day after day whenever possible.

It is our pleasure to show you over the following pages what measures we are implementing to this end and how we manage development at CWS-boco successfully.


Yours, Max Teichner
Chairman of the Management Board
CWS-boco International GmbH
