Dear Readers,

Sustainability isn’t a goal, it’s a process that requires hard work and perseverance. If you want to change something for the long term, you need courage, new approaches, patience, and the drive to stay the course in the face of new contradictions and conflicting goals. Sustainability isn’t just a section in next year’s annual report, nor is it something that can be implemented from one day to the next. No, sustainability has more to do with showing respect for our planet and embracing one’s responsibility to society. We need to develop an understanding of sustainability as a collective duty and integrate it into our daily lives. And this applies not only to each and every individual, but also to companies so that they do their part to improve society on an environmental, social, and economic level.

Here at Ingenics, sustainability is one of our top priorities. We work with our clients to ensure that their production and logistics processes are sustainable. Whether it’s energy management, certifications, green brownfields, green supply chains, or the business culture and mindset – this issue of our magazine is entitled “Sustainable Business Networks,” and in it, we take a look at many of the relevant aspects.

I hope you find this issue informative, that it gives you some ideas on how to make your own life and company more sustainable, and also sparks interesting discussions with your coworkers and business partners. We look forward to receiving your feedback.
