We do our part


The world is changing at a rapid pace. As a technology group, we see it as our responsibility to do our part to ensure that the world changes for the better. We therefore support the sustainable development goals of the United Nations and are committed to helping people and nature. Sustainability is firmly anchored in our corporate culture and continues to determine our actions today. We also want to help our customers achieve their own sustainability goals by developing innovative products and sustainable production processes. Through our commitment to sustainability, we are also increasing our competitiveness and aim to make a decisive technological contribution to a sustainable industry together with our customers.

Protecting the environment and saving resources

Our business activities should have as little negative impact as possible on people, animals and nature. As an internationally successful technology group, we are aware that we operate in a field positioned between two conflicting interests as the manufacture of industrial products consumes energy. We therefore use natural resources responsibly and are proactively committed to protecting the environment.

Focus on people

We are aware of our responsibility to our employees – their well-being and health are very important to us. We promote their personal and professional development, for example, through in-company training and continuing education. As a reliable and responsible employer, we promote an open, respectful corporate culture across all hierarchical levels.
