Wir sind enkelfähig

Wir liefern unseren Geschäftsbereichen Wachstumskapital, das heißt wir investieren in Forschung und Entwicklung oder unterstützen sie bei Zu- und Verkäufen. Im Sinne unseres Anspruchs als Familienunternehmen, „enkelfähig“ zu sein, halten wir sie auch dazu an, durch nachhaltiges Handeln einen positiven Beitrag für Umwelt und Gesellschaft zu leisten. Sind wir für ein Investment nicht mehr der beste Eigentümer, verkaufen wir es weiter und schaffen so Spielraum für neues Wachstum – sowohl in dem betreffenden Unternehmen als auch bei Haniel selbst.
