Declaration on the DNK

Sustainability reporting has been carried out on the basis of the German Sustainability Code (DNK) since the 2017 financial year.

To comply with the German Sustainability Code, users prepare a declaration in the DNK database on the basis of twenty DNK criteria and the supplementary non-financial performance indicators selected from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS). This not only renders the sustainability achievements visible and transparent but makes them more binding in nature.

The declaration by Berentzen-Gruppe Aktiengesellschaft was reviewed by the Code Office of the DNK for formal completeness in the sense of the “comply or explain” approach; it can be downloaded here or from the DNK’s database (available in german only). 

Following successful publication of the declaration, the Berentzen Group received the DNK mark for the 2017 financial year.
