In fulfilment of these disclosure obligations, we make the following announcement:
Salmann Investment Management AG is aware of its responsibility to ensure a future worth living for the next generations. Salmann Investment Management AG does not currently record the adverse sustainability impacts at company level, as the measurability, data basis and data quality are not currently available to the desired extent.
