We do nothing halfway
We have been reducing our carbon footprint at our sites around the world for years. Last year, the independent rating agency ISS ESG awarded us a premium rating of B-. This makes us one of the three best-rated companies worldwide in the area of sustainability within the plant and mechanical engineering sector. At the same time, we have a strong focus on diversity and social justice and take responsibility in the regions.
For years we have been significantly reducing our CO2 footprint
The independent rating agency ISS ESG ranks us among the top three machinery and equipment companies worldwide in the area of sustainability.
We publish a comprehensive sustainability report every year.
Back in 2012, we set for ourselves these ambitious targets that have been successfully achieved. In the future, we will continue to optimize the sustainability of our own activities.
Strongly committed to social justice and diversity.
Worldwide, we are expanding our photovoltaic plants, focusing on the purchase of renewable energies, increasing energy efficiency at our sites and thus gradually reducing our compensation measures.
