We acknowledge the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations for a better and more sustainable future for all. The following goals are particularly relevant for us as a company – with a view to our core business.
Sustainability represents a commitment to sustainable development of the economy, society and the environment. MLP makes its contribution as a company through its system of strategic sustainability management. This involves remaining economically successful in the long term, while at the same time acting with ecological and social responsibility.
„Sustainable actions represent a key component of our services and activities. So that, MLP takes ecological as well as social aspects into account and we attach great importance to responsible, long-term oriented corporate management.”
Dr. Uwe Schroeder-Wildberg
Chief Executive Officer at MLP SE
MLP is a knowledge-based service provider, at which qualified and motivated employees, as well as self-employed client consultants represent the fundamental basis for sustainable corporate success.
The MLP Group is the partner for all financial matters – for private clients, companies and institutional investors. Five brands, each of which enjoys a leading position in its respective market, offer a broad range of services.
In addition to compliance with relevant legal provisions, we have devised Group-wide compliance guidelines which define general standards of good conduct and principles for the companies in the MLP Group.
Our climate protection strategy provides the framework for the climate protection activities of the MLP Group and aims to guarantee the requisite approach for achieving climate neutrality by the year 2022 and beyond. To keep our use of resources appropriate, as well as price and ecology conscious, our infrastructure management unit focuses on continuously improving our energy efficiency.
MLP already laid the foundations for the digitalisation strategy and its implementation throughout the Group several years ago.
Maintaining consistently high quality consulting makes an important contribution to our added value. This is why we place great emphasis on training our self-employed client consultants at MLP.
When selecting partners and products, we therefore employ high quality standards and place great emphasis on objective and transparent criteria.
Particularly when reaching financial decisions, however, clients are placing ever greater emphasis on sustainability with regard to a company's alignment and its products. Sustainable alignment of a company or a product can be reflected in economic, social, ethical and ecological aspects. We already have corresponding product offerings available to our clients in the consulting fields of wealth management, provision, non-life insurance and health insurance and will continue to expand these.
As a consultancy covering all financial questions and issues, MLP operates in a complex and constantly changing market and competitive environment and must be capable of repeatedly convincing its clients of the benefits associated with its services.
"The threads of all sustainability initiatives throughout the Group come together at my desk. This means that I work with our Executive Board to define targets and measures that we are keen to use as a way of initiating changes. One major objective in this regard is securing climate neutrality* in the MLP Group. We are primarily targeting this by avoiding emissions, but also by compensating unavoidable emissions."
* Climate neutrality of the MLP Group includes greenhouse gas emissions that occur directly within the organisation (Scope 1) as well as emissions caused by the provision of energy outside the organisation (Scope 2). In addition, we record emissions caused by our business activities (Scope 3). The aspects and system scope already taken into account can be found in our sustainability report. Other indirect emissions that occur outside the company during the production of raw materials and preliminary products, the use and disposal of products, or other processes are not subject to climate neutrality.
