Sustainability

Sustainability creates new business opportunities for us and at the same time it is the guiding principle for our own activities. Sustainability is therefore a key element of our Group strategy.

Business driver sustainability

Sustainability in investments is becoming increasingly important for our customers. This is why we are specifically developing low-consumption and low-emission products and processes that can be used to reduce the ecological footprint of factories. In addition, we are expanding into business areas that help our customers manufacture sustainable products. Examples include production technology for wooden house construction elements and our range of products for the production of electric vehicles.

The trend towards sustainability opens up new business opportunities for us, since our technologies help customers reduce their ecological footprint. At the same time, we want to actively assume our responsibility towards environment, society and employees.

Sustainability as enabler of our corporate strategy

Our current mid-term strategy provides the roadmap for profitable growth and for raising earnings and is linked to four medium-term performance targets. In order to achieve our goals and expand our leading position in the world market, we are positioning ourselves to optimum effect in four strategic fields: global presence, innovation, efficiency and life cycle services.

We have also defined four enablers, i.e. supporting functions that are particularly important for the successful implementation of our strategy:

  • sustainability
  • mergers & acquisitions
  • finance management
  • people development
