           management within the Group. The focus of our efforts in
           this area is the group-wide conviction that a high degree of
           diversity among employees is one of the keys to the success
           of our business.

           to  the  different  generations,  genders  and  cultures,
           increasing  productivity  within  the  company  through
           diversity and also taking on social responsibility. The KELAG
           diversity programme focused on the area of generational
