Icon Welt mit Herz

One of the most important goals of our sustainability strategy is the continuous reduction of our CO2 footprint. Together with our employees, we work on this every day: at our headquarters, which is powered by 100% green electricity, on the road with our bike leasing offer and the switch to a hybrid and fully electric company fleet or our regionally sourced products for shorter delivery routes.

Together with suppliers, partners and the industry, we are also working on innovative product ideas to continuously improve the emissions of our service portfolio.

Focus on people: We prioritise the well-being of our employees. To this end, we rely on company health management for mental and physical health, regular employee surveys and training.

We not only feel this responsibility towards our employees, but also want to make a contribution to society. This includes local commitments such as regional sponsorships, support for educational institutions and regular fundraising campaigns for charitable causes.

In the area of responsible corporate governance, the focus is on strengthening our compliance management and ESG governance. We have anchored our values, standards and rules in our Code of Conduct as well as in our Supplier Code of Conduct for suppliers and service partners, thereby underpinning binding guidelines.


Science-based Targets

Scientifically sound

Science-based Targets (SBTs) are corporate climate targets that are based on the current scientific consensus and the Paris Climate Agreement. The MEDIA Central has joined the initiative and is thereby making a commitment to reducing emissions.

Science Based Targets Initiative


We take a stand!

"For us, sustainability is not a trend, but a deeply rooted conviction of our corporate responsibility. We see the path as a journey: Both large projects and smaller optimisations are valuable to us. We believe that every commitment counts!"
