The Nagel-Group is the first logistics company to be awarded the ZNU sustainability certificate

Versmold, 5 October 2017 — The Nagel-Group is the first logistics company to fulfil the ZNU standard for "sustainable management". The certificate awarded by the ZNU, Centre for Sustainable Business and Leadership at Witten/Herdecke University, was issued as the result of an extensive audit process, which the food logistics company, the Nagel-Group, had to undergo at its locations in Borgholzhausen and Versmold.

The ZNU institute specialises within the entire food sector and deals with all relevant issues and interfaces along the value chain. Today, ZNU is one of the established standards in the food industry and its certificate is a proof that certified companies take the topic of sustainability seriously and have developed a systematic sustainability management.

A sustainable management is of central importance to business activities and the success of a company. A standardised system defines guidelines and offers an accessible approach to the complex topic of sustainability. "ZNU has developed a standard which helps us to sort through the multiple dimensions and to group emerging issues, be it at local or international level," says Thomas Pütter, Head of Corporate Operational Processdesign & Systems at the Nagel-Group.
