Sustainability is Our Strategic Ambition

Sustainability is at the core of our business. As a leading contract development and manufacturing company for customized, highly complex molecules for many of the leading companies in crop sciences, life sciences, and performance materials, it is our responsibility to ensure a sustainable, highly efficient, and secure production and supply chain for our customers. It is the CABB Group’s clear ambition to be the partner of choice in our target markets – a commitment that is deeply embedded in the corporate vision and fully endorsed by CABB’s management and its investors.

This commitment means that the CABB Group is continuously working on surpassing sustainability standards in every aspect possible. In 2021, the CABB Group revised its complete sustainability reporting structure, resulting in the first group-wide Sustainability Report across all sites and locations in Switzerland, Germany, Finland, the United States and China. CABB also established a global scorecard, which is utilized to track progress and quickly identify potential areas for further improvement. To ensure that all targets, responsibilities, policies, and guidelines are well aligned, a Corporate ESG guideline has been released by the end of 2021 for the first time.

In 2022, the CABB Group further intensified its effort of greatly reducing the carbon footprint by extending the transparency on its Scope 3 emissions and improving the use and reuse of resources in production units, as well as maintaining a safe and future-proof workplace environment through innovative solutions and processes. Generating continuous growth in a resource- efficient manner, not putting harmful emissions into the environment, and ensuring the safe handling of chemicals along the value chain are therefore at the core of the CABB Group’s business responsibility. To further enhance transparency in all ESG areas, CABB aims to fully align its sustainability report with the “Global Reporting Initiative” (GRI) in the coming years, meaning that all required disclosures will be communicated, thus increasing transparency for all stakeholders. The CABB Group considers this as another important step to carefully prepare for the implementation of the upcoming Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).
