What we do as a company

As a global player, we have both a responsibility and an opportunity to act as a steward of the environment. We aim to follow and promote good sustainability practices, reduce the environmental impacts of all our activities, and encourage our people and partners to do the same. Our company doesn’t see a trade-off between commercial success and environmentally responsible behavior. Rather, we see the two as being inextricably linked.

At GfK, we are committed to establishing and maintaining systems to protect our company from negative impacts and to ensure we have a positive impact to our planet.

Real improvements based on real data

We know that we can only make the world a better place if we set ourselves ambitious goals. That is why we have increased the focus on our sustainability agenda and targets by calculating our carbon footprint annually to track our progress and take targeted action more quickly. We are rising to the challenges, we will improve through experience and will continuously seek feedback to move in the right direction.

Our goals

    We can no longer ask whether we can afford to be environmentally conscious. The truth is we can’t afford not to be. Working to mitigate the effects of climate change and using natural resources wisely are essential to the health of our business, our society, and our planet.
