Gebr. Heinemann has created a department for compliance and corporate responsibility to be led by Saskia Möller, who will report to Co-CEO Raoul Spanger.


Möller is a lawyer, who moved from the raw materials and steel industry to the Hamburg-based family business in 2021.


“Sustainable and responsible corporate governance is part of our values and our corporate culture and has been for many years and decades,” said Spanger.


“Both compliance and our sustainability activities have become more and more important in our company.


“By expanding the two areas and bundling them under one leadership, we see great potential in the strategic use of opportunities and the early identification and avoidance of risks.”

“Both topics are also gaining in importance in the competitive environment,” added Co-CEO and owner Max Heinemann.


“In order to be able to serve these requirements in the best possible way and in a timely manner, we need the professional support of our colleagues from the compliance department as well as a long-term and cross-company sustainability strategy.”


Having already joined United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in 2018, Gebr. Heinemann has anchored sustainable development goals in its corporate strategy, committing to achieving them by 2030 in the following fields of action: Energy & Emissions, Waste & Packaging, ‘Product Portfolio and People.


The sustainable impact also plays a very decisive and significant role in the company’s new mission statement, added the company.


Möller’s area comprises two departments. Niels Runge, previously Senior Compliance Manager at Gebr. Heinemann, will become the new Head of Compliance.
