FUCHS honored as the most diverse MDAX company
FUCHS PETROLUB, the world's largest independent lubricant manufacturer, took 3rd place overall in the BCG Gender Diversity Index 2021 and enjoys the honor of being the highest ranked MDAX company. Deutsche Telekom took first place, followed by SAP.
Consultancy firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) cooperated with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in analyzing Germany's 100 largest listed corporate groups for this survey. Multiple components were examined, namely the proportion of women holding Executive Board and Supervisory Board positions, as well as their compensation in comparison with their male colleagues.
"We are delighted to have moved up from 5th place in the previous year to 3rd place in 2021," explains Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board at FUCHS PETROLUB SE. "At FUCHS, we see diversity not only as an economic success factor, but also an important component of our corporate culture. Our aim is to keep improving year after year." This is an extremely important result from Stefan Fuchs' perspective, as it is not based on a submitted application, but rather on a neutral evaluation.
The observation that companies which do well in the BCG Gender Diversity Index often also achieve a high ESG score is also interesting. It suggests to the author that corporate groups which promote gender diversity at the top management level also act more socially, ecologically and sustainably. In fact, the FUCHS Group has now been fully committed to this topic for ten years with its sustainability strategy.
Stefan Fuchs accepted the Diversity Champion Award on behalf of the company on April 27 in Hamburg's HafenCity district as part of the "Top 100 Women Networking Dinners". In the presence of ECB President Christine Lagarde (keynote speaker), this event was used to honor the 100 most influential women in the German economy, the Diversity Champions, as well as the prima inter pares, Martina Merz.

VIENNA (Reuters) -Governor Andrew Bailey on Monday pushed back against his critics who blame the Bank of England for allowing inflation to accelerate to a 40-year high, saying the facts do not support this. The British central bank has been accused by lawmakers in Prime Minister Boris Johnson's ruling Conservative Party and even by former governor Mervyn King of being too slow to halt a rise in consumer prices that are up 9% compared with a year ago. Bailey, speaking at a conference hosted by Austria's central bank, said the BoE judged the extent of recent interest rises to be appropriate given the coming hit to demand from soaring energy prices.

The European Union plans to start jointly buying gas before winter, the bloc's energy policy chief said on Monday, as it seeks to cut reliance on Russian fossil fuels and build a buffer against further energy supply shocks. The European Commission, the EU's executive arm, last week proposed a plan for how the bloc could quit Russian fossil fuels by 2027, by speeding up investments in renewable energy and energy savings and switching to non-Russian fossil fuels. In an interview with Reuters, EU energy policy chief Kadri Simson said the bloc intended to start jointly buying gas this year, supported by an EU platform launched last month that would pool countries' demand and coordinate use of infrastructure to import non-Russian supplies.
