Corporate Responsibility (CR), for NORMA Group, means reconciling the impact of its business with the needs of society. This is done by ensuring that the management and employees follow legal requirements and integrate social and ecological aspects into the company’s strategy and processes. With a variety of products, NORMA Group already makes a valuable contribution to a more sustainable society by helping to reduce the negative effects of global challenges such as resource scarcity and climate change.

NORMA Group has been implementing the concept of CR since 2012. The goal is to act in a responsible, sustainable, and lawful manner in all areas of the company’s functions. To ensure that NORMA Group as a whole remains oriented toward this goal, CR has been integrated as a core element of the corporate strategy. STRATEGY AND GOALS The Group-wide CR POLICY defines the basic understanding of responsibility as a company. It was revised in 2020 and comprises three key areas of action: “Environment”, “Social” and “Governance”. The policy is updated every year, including fiscal year 2023. The policy describes the strategic approach with the aim of coordinating NORMA Group’s responsibility in a structured way and further developing it in a targeted manner. In its CR Policy, NORMA Group also reaffirms its commitment to the UN Global Compact, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and ILO Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
