The Group defines sustainable entrepreneurial activity as an integrated approach for improving its economic as well as environmental and social performance. We are aware of our corporate and social responsibility and regard it as a holistic challenge. For ProSiebenSat.1, success not only means increasing ProSiebenSat.1 Group’s economic results in the long-term. For us, it also means further developing the Group’s sustainability strategy and adapting it to new challenges. Moreover, it means improving the key non-financial figures, and reconciling the sometimes conflicting interests of our target groups, particularly those of employees, users of our offerings and platforms, shareholders and investors, and business partners. As a matter of priority, ProSiebenSat.1 pursues a dialog with stakeholders who strongly influence the Company’s financial and non-financial performance and the regulatory framework for this, and are significantly affected by the Company’s activities.

In 2018, ProSiebenSat.1 developed a Group-wide sustainability strategy with the objective to tie sustainability aspects more strongly to ProSiebenSat.1’s corporate strategy in order to regard the Group’s economic, environmental, and social performance in a holistic way. Sustainability goals have also been integrated into the Executive Board targets.Compensation Report

Sustainability Strategy

Our sustainability strategy is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These define global priorities and sustainable development goals for 2030 and aim to mobilize global efforts to achieve a common set of goals and targets. ProSiebenSat.1 Group also wants to contribute to this transformation. As part of the development of the strategy, we have classified the following six goals as particularly relevant to our business activities and their contribution to the SDGs: quality education (SDG 4), gender equality (SDG 5), reduced inequalities (SDG 10), climate action (SDG 13), peace, justice and strong institutions (SDG 16), and partnerships for the goals (SDG 17). Based on this, we have transferred our sustainability management into four fields of action in which we bundle our activities thematically and set individual principles in each case: society, diversity & inclusion, climate & environment, and governance & compliance. The specific goals of the sustainability strategy and their implementation in 2022 are described in the following sections on the respective topics reported.
