The WIN Charter is a unique management system for the sustainable economic management of a company. By signing the WIN-Charta, WIN-Charta companies make a clear commitment to their economic, ecological and social responsibility.

It is based on self-commitment, initiative and external communication. By signing the WIN-Charta, companies commit to comply with the twelve guiding principles of the WIN-Charta and to further increase their sustainability.
