GRI 2-12 – Role of the highest governance body in overseeing the management of impacts
Responsible management, sustainable strategy and decision-making, and an open corporate culture guide day-to-day actions taken by the entire management team. The Executive Management of Interzero Holding GmbH & Co. KG makes key operating decisions within the Interzero Group. A few especially relevant measures require the consent of the Advisory Board of Interzero Holding GmbH & Co. KG. Examples include strategic decisions, actions with Group-wide relevance and decisions about business transactions exceeding specific thresholds. The Advisory Board provides the Executive Management with support and advice on all major strategic issues. The Executive Management reports regularly to both the Advisory Board and shareholders.
The Executive Management is also jointly responsible for implementing material sustainability topics. Sebastiaan Krol, in particular, is responsible for the topic of sustainability. Sustainability managers who coordinate sustainability issues and work to implement sustainability goals within different parts of the company report to him. These managers receive support from colleagues in distribution, digital transformation, media, employees, compliance, supply chain and environment as they implement the focal points of the sustainability strategy.
