46 Proposition 2 Product chain management and climate neutral production are for the larger business community strategically the most important CSR topics for the next few years

47 Proposition 3 In the next few years people and planet indicators will be as important for the bonuses and other forms of variable elements in the rewarding system as pure financial and commercial results
