Zero inequality

Let’s close the gap – any gap. What matters is merit: skill, effort, talent, responsibility and resourcefulness. Zero inequality means people are valued equally. Treated equally. Paid equally for equal efforts. We want our employees to have equal rights, equal responsibilities and equal opportunities.To achieve our goal, we have set ourselves three ambitious targets:

Gender parity among managers

100% equal pay

Increased non-European representation by 2035
