HORNBACH Sustainability Magazine

“?!?” offers more than 60 pages of information about sustainability-related topics at the company. Here, HORNBACH enables readers to actually experience those topics already presented in the Non-Financial Group Declaration ( PDF (214.20 kB) ), among many others. The Magazine addresses sustainability topics that motivate the HORNBACH Group, its staff and its customers.

Down-to-earthness, cosmopolitanism, cohesion and a heart in the right place - these are not only at the core of HORNBACH's corporate culture, they are also the foundations of the HORNBACH Foundation. The foundation celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2022. Reason enough to take a look at the motives and history of the foundation in the current magazine and to let contemporary witnesses have their say. But social commitment is also a matter of concern for the company. One current example is the "HORNBACH macht Schule" project. This encourages young people to pick up their own tools and create sustainable ideas for the future. You can find a detailed report on this project on page 56.

What does diversity mean in a human company? We explore this question in different ways: During a visit to IKEA Germany (Page 12), in an interview with HORNBACH Supervisory Board member Simona Scarpaleggia (Page 16), and when looking at initiatives testing new and more flexible forms of work at HORNBACH (Page 22).

As a company, we are of course also concerned with a number of "classic" sustainability and environmental issues. In an essay, for example, we ask what role ethics, business and politics play if we are to succeed in stopping climate change (Page 32) and, when it comes to CO2 balancing, we can attest: "It's complicated" (Page 48). We try to understand what the circular economy is all about (page 38), look at wood as a sustainable raw material (page 34) and learn why technology plays a key role in sustainable development (page 44).

There's a way.
