As a sus­tain­able fam­ily busi­ness, the Th. Gey­er Group can look back on over 130 years of ex­per­i­ence in in­ter­na­tion­al trade. The fifth gen­er­a­tion of the Gey­er fam­ily is cur­rently re­spons­ible for the course of the com­pany.

In everything we do, we are aware that in a glob­ally net­worked world, eco­nom­ic de­vel­op­ment can only be achieved hol­ist­ic­ally, i.e. through the sim­ul­tan­eous and equal real­isa­tion of eco­nom­ic, en­vir­on­ment­al and so­cial goals. For this reas­on, we are in con­stant dia­logue with our stake­hold­ers in or­der to be aware of and meet their ex­pect­a­tions and re­quire­ments. Find out more about our goals and prin­ciples, what we have already achieved and our next steps.

17 Goals

We are guided by the United Na­tions' 17 Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals (17 SDGs). We de­veloped these when de­riv­ing the key goals for the Th. Gey­er Group, which we want to fo­cus on.

3 Pillars

Sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment re­quires that the three pil­lars of sus­tain­ab­il­ity ‘eco­nomy, eco­logy and so­cial is­sues’ are con­sidered to be of equal im­port­ance. This means that com­pan­ies should be equally com­mit­ted and con­tinu­ously im­prove as part of the PD­CA cycle.

1 way

Stand­ing still is not an op­tion, which is why we are es­tab­lish­ing a frame­work for or­gan­ising and shap­ing sus­tain­ab­il­ity at Th. Gey­er. We will im­prove every day and en­sure trans­par­ency so that you can fol­low our pro­gress.
