Sustainability report 2019/20

Our key figures in black and white

From turnover figures to figures on power consumption: the facts and figures speak for themselves.

KHS opens its books and gives a broad overview of the most important key figures from the 2017/2018 reporting period. We have already achieved a great deal thanks to our energy and environmental guidelines and our fixed goals for 2025. At the same time, we are also aware of the challenges that lie ahead which, thanks to our committed employees worldwide, we are resolutely tackling.
