2. Festo footprint Sustainability can be divided into three areas: economy, ecology and social issues. A balance between these areas is important for sustainable development. In a globalised economy, companies must take responsibility for this balance, both in their own footprint and that of their suppliers. Festo faces up to this responsibility and represents this attitude along the entire value chain. Through our involvement in various networks and initiatives, we communicate openly with a wide range of stakeholders and partners and are clearly committed to the defined standards and guidelines. This is because our responsibility does not end at our factory gates.  GRI 103-1 16 17 Festo SE & Co. KG Sustainability Report 2021 Festo SE & Co. KG Sustainability Report 2021
