ARBURG Sustainability Report 2022

With its Sustainability Report 2022, ARBURG is once again providing global information on the extent to which the company acts and operates sustainably in all relevant areas over the long term. A wealth of fascinating background information, facts and figures is available online in a clearly structured and easy-to-understand interactive PDF.

Part of the arburgGREENworld program

The Sustainability Report is an important component of the arburgGREENworld program, with which ARBURG has enshrined sustainability through resource efficiency, a reduced carbon footprint and circular economy as important goals. These activities already go back more than ten years. As early as 2012, ARBURG was one of the first companies ever to receive triple certification in terms of quality, environment and energy. Environmental protection, resource conservation and efficiency have been an integral part of the corporate philosophy for decades. Energy-efficient construction is just as much a part of the portfolio as sustainable manufacturing processes. Other contributing factors include central production at a location with a high proportion of in-house manufacturing and short supply chains, production-efficient machine technology, and the digital products and services making up the arburgXworld program.

Impressive figures

Impressive figures demonstrate how ARBURG is implementing sustainable practices across the entire company:

  • 87 per cent of all waste in 2021 was recycled taking full account of the circular economy.
  • Rainwater collected in multiple cisterns increased the share of rainwater in total water consumption from 16 to almost 23 per cent in 2021.
  • ARBURG generated 1.7 million kWh of solar power with photovoltaics alone for its own use in 2021. This corresponds to the energy needs of around 470 four-person households.
  • By participating again in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) 2022 rating, ARBURG was able to achieve an above-average result with a "B" rating, as it did in 2021.
  • Between 2010 and 2021, these and many other measures and activities saved a total of over 100 million kilograms of CO2 emissions.
