U2 1 Prologue The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs for short came into effect on 1 January 2016 The SDGs serve as an important guideline and we wish to do our part in achieving these global development objectives Read on page 10 f how they are integrated into our work and which are of particular relevance to us See also the index on page U3 f to find out which sections of this sustainability report directly pertain to the various SDGs PURE TASTE GROUP ULRICH WALTER GMBH NIEHOFFS KAFFEERÖSTEREI BIOLOGX LEBENSBAUM To enhance the readability of this report and because we ve never done it differently around here the name Lebensbaum stands for our entire cor porate group Lebensbaum was originally the name of an organic shop that opened 40 years ago from which the companies now located in Diepholz have evolved Today it is one of our brand names Our coffee has been roasted by Niehoffs Kaffeerösterei for almost as long In essence we were all part of Lebensbaum well before the roastery was formally acquired in 2011 We frequently use Lebensbaum as an umbrella name for all of our companies in our external communications for instance in correspondence with our customers Therefore it s only natural for it to be used as such in this report Since all of our companies share the same views on sustainability and the same implementation objectives it would be pointless to look separately at what are often company wide activities in this report Wherever a distinction must be made we clearly indicate which company or location is meant particularly in the GRI content index Please note For the sake of readability we did not always include gender specific formulations his her s he etc in our texts However we would like to point out that terms such as customers employees etc all apply equally to everyone regardless of gender
