First combined annual report from V-ZUG
V-ZUG published its first combined annual report on 13 March. BHP supported V-ZUG for the eleventh time in the design and realisation of the report.

With comprehensive sustainability reporting, supplemented by a climate report (TCFD) and a declaration on due diligence obligations in the supply chain (VSoTR), V-ZUG communicates transparently and in accordance with the regulatory requirements for non-financial reporting. This year's report reinforces its credo: for V-ZUG, sustainability is a driver of innovation in favour of its own future viability and that of our society. The ambitious household appliance manufacturer wants to strengthen its pioneering role in the area of recyclable household appliances and business models and drive forward the decarbonisation of the industry in Switzerland.
