Sustainability is one of the core values firmly anchored in Sartorius’s corporate culture. Ever since the company was founded in 1870, sustainable development has been its overriding mission. It is our primary entrepreneurial responsibility to offer our customers attractive products and solutions. Innovation as well as strategic and operating excellence are the keys to accomplishing this mission. To us, sustainability means that we pursue our corporate objectives from a long-term perspective while clearly addressing social and ecological concerns. We believe that proactive administration of our social and ecological duties is not a means to compensate for our economic actions, but rather is one of the key drivers of our success.
