PERFORMANCE, PEOPLE and PLANET
Under the abbreviation “3P” or “Triple P”, an action framework has been created in which the business models of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding and its companies are enhanced for the purpose of sustainable management.

What is "3P"?

For the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding, sustainable management means ensuring the ongoing success of the company (“PERFORMANCE”) while exercising ethical, social (“PEOPLE”), and environmental (“PLANET”) responsibility—the 3Ps. The focus is always on improving the impact on people and the environment.

Objectives of "3P"

Economic, social, and environmental impacts are taken into account in business decisions and practices. Through the holistic consideration of sustainability in products and services as well as in production and supply chains, added value is created for customers. Resources are used carefully, and fair interaction with stakeholders is also ensured.

It is about firmly anchoring sustainable management in our strategy and operational business.

Organization of "3P"

To ensure the consistent implementation of “3P” in the organization and to meet the increasingly detailed sustainability requirements and regulations, the management board of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding decided to set up a six-person control group in 2022. The members of the control group come from a variety of functions and business groups. It reports to Frank Gfrörer, CEO of the BLANCO-Group who is responsible for sustainability in the management board of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding.

Implementation of "3P"

To strategically prioritize sustainability activities, the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding carried out a materiality analysis in 2019 in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). In 2023, a materiality analysis will be conducted in accordance with the new legal requirements from the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). So far, the emissions have been determined in accordance with Scope 1 (direct emissions, e.g. from own energy generation and fleet operations) and Scope 2 (indirect emissions from purchased energies such as electricity, district heating) following the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG). The upstream and downstream emissions according to Scope 3 (in particular purchased goods and transport) will also be analyzed in 2023, to identify any significant reduction potential. These measures serve as the basis for firmly anchoring sustainable management in the strategies of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding and its business groups.

Sustainability reporting by the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding and its companies will be gradually aligned with the legal requirements from the CSRD and the EU Taxonomy, which will be mandatory for the first time in the 2025 fiscal year. Previous reporting, which addresses financial aspects, is expanded to include non-financial information in the fields of environment (E), social (S), and corporate governance (G). This Sustainability Report is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and reports the corresponding GRI key figures, in case available.
