Sustainability

The result of conscious decisions

As a family enterprise, the corporate culture of the Dussmann Group is founded on sustainability. This principle is not limited to the company's own service provision; it is also promoted among our clients, suppliers and subcontractors and implemented through the integrated management system.

Our daily activities determine the degree of sustainability in the operations of the Dussmann Group; every employee actively contributes because sustainability is the result of conscious decisions taken locally, nationally and globally.
