Wintershall Dea continuously publishes relevant non-financial information. We follow internationally accepted reporting standards, allowing our stakeholders to compare our ecological, economic and social performance with others. We also use these indicators to identify potential for improvement and measure our progress.

Further, we are contributing to all relevant MGP pillars by actively participating in the programme's oversight group, policymaking and the working and best practice groups.
