Corporate Sustainability

Product Responsibility

We create economic and environmental added value for our customers through our products and industrial services. Besides our products’ quality and reliability, we place great value on their energy and resource efficiency – both in the production and usage phase. Within our overall sphere of influence we also ensure international environmental and social standards are upheld. In a nutshell, we set high standards for ourselves and our suppliers in order to provide the same to our customers

How can Voith products help increase resource conservation?

The name Voith stands for reliability and outstanding quality the world over. This is at the heart of our commitment that we make with every single one of our products, and which has impressed our customers for over 150 years. Sustainability has long since been a part of this promise, so we attach great importance to ensuring our products conserve resources and increase efficiency – both in terms of their production and in their subsequent utilization phases.

How do customer benefits and environmental
protection fit together?

This approach brings multiple benefits to our customers – after all, those who use fewer raw materials and less energy also save costs, and can improve their own environmental footprint in the process.

How do we manage to integrate our environmental and social standards into our global supply chains?

Within our overall sphere of influence, we also ensure environmental and social standards are upheld. In doing so, we always have the same aspiration: We aim to provide environmental and economic added value in everything we do for our customers.

Voith Hydro – Global Success in Hydropower

Hydropower is the biggest, oldest, and most reliable form of renewable energy production. Globally it makes an indispensable contribution to the stable supply of electricity and thus to economic and social development – in industrialized countries as much as in fast-growing regions around the world. In addition, hydropower makes a significant contribution to eco-friendly power generation. Right from the early days Voith has been a leader in this technology, and is continually developing it further. Voith Hydro is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of generators, turbines, and pumps as well as of electrical and mechanical equipment for virtually all sizes of hydropower plant.

Voith Turbo – Powering Personal Mobility

Voith Turbo contributes daily to ensuring people, goods, and equipment are conveyed reliably. Pressure to deliver this will increase, especially in light of the UN’s forecast that 70% of the world’s population will be city-dwellers by 2050. These people want to get from A to B safely, quickly, and in an eco-friendly way. Particularly in megacities, local public transport is critical for personal mobility. As a result, Voith is involved in developing the necessary technologies, and supplying systems for buses, light rail vehicles, metros, and monorails. Our development departments are creating modern hybrid drives, waste heat recuperation systems, and a new generation of retarder based on water instead of oil for commercial vehicles.
