Munich / Berlin, June 15 2022
Scout24 SE, operator of the digital marketplace ImmoScout24, is transferring all activities relating to the company's sustainability under the management of Dr. Claudia Viehweger with immediate effect. Viehweger (who holds a doctorate in law) has already been responsible for human resources at Scout24 SE as Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) since June 2021. With the addition of all sustainability topics, Scout24 appoints Claudia Viehweger as Chief People & Sustainability Officer (CPSO).
"I am very much looking forward to working with the sustainability team. Scout24 is thus already setting the course for the growing connection of ESG issues and employee development. We will integrate our sustainability strategy even more strongly into all business units and develop it further together as a team," says Dr. Claudia Viehweger, CPSO of Scout24.
Due to a large intersection of topics, such as sustainable corporate governance, product stewardship as well as awareness of social responsibility, the sustainability team of Scout24 SE has already reported to Claudia Viehweger on a transitional basis. With the adjustment, the company is now elevating the commitment and mission to the executive level of the company and dovetailing all corresponding areas even more closely.
Already in May 2022, the Scout24 Group was able to significantly improve its Sustainalytics rating. The rating evaluates corporate sustainability management according to ecological and social aspects as well as principles of good corporate governance. Within the peer group "Internet Software & Services" with a total of 230 other rated companies, Scout24 currently ranks first.
"Our sustainability team and our employees are making an important contribution to creating a more environmentally conscious, socially just and economically sustainable future for us all. We have now firmly anchored this commitment in our corporate governance. I would like to thank the entire team and am delighted that they will now join Claudia in driving the issue forward in a stronger way," says Tobias Hartmann, CEO of Scout24 SE.
