In 2022 we revised our purpose and values. The next chapter of our story is growth.
Our size and scale mean that our results create an impact for not only our clients but also their customers, the wider community, and the environment. That’s why we are making ESG a priority. It is our responsibility to incorporate transparency, sustainability, social aspects, and credibility into every business decision we make. It is part of our culture and corporate philosophy.
Putting ESG at the heart of Simon-Kucher
Our vision is to generate sustainable growth and have a positive impact on our people, our planet, our communities, and our clients.
With our ESG strategy we have created a strong foundation for our future direction and aim to increase transparency by publishing an annual ESG Report.
We will achieve our ESG goals together as one team
