EcoVadis Sustainability Award: Gold for ARBURG!

With our recent Gold Medal from EcoVadis and 73 points, we has made it into the top five per cent of the world's most sustainable industrial companies. EcoVadis is a comprehensive sustainability rating platform for global supply chains. In addition to environmental impact and sustainable procurement, the focus is also on ethics as well as labour and human rights. The EcoVadis rankings take into account the data and supply chains of more than 100,000 companies. The points system for achieving the respective medal level has been made even stricter for 2023. So we are even more pleased to have our sustainability activities as part of "arburgGREENworld" recognised with a Gold Medal – especially as stakeholders, customers, potential employees and suppliers are becoming increasingly aware of the issue of sustainability.

Sustainability program now awarded Gold

Since 2019, all our activities have been grouped together in the "arburgGREENworld" program. The program is no longer restricted to strategies on resource efficiency and circular economy, but also now takes an integrated view of sustainability through its own ESG (environmental, social, governance) strategy.

Clear disassociation from greenwashing

We use quantifiable measures to distance ourselves from greenwashing. We set our own high targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, for example, and have recently made the targets validated by the SBTI (Science Based Targets Initiative) an ARBURG standard. In ARBURG's "Action Plan Energy" we work with our customers on efficient, sustainable and energy-optimised production processes in order to save even more CO2 together.

On the way to becoming the "greenest" machine manufacturer

We at ARBURG see our Gold Medal as clear and lasting confirmation that we are steering the correct course into the future. "We therefore take a positive view of new legal requirements for European companies, such as the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) and other challenges," says Gerhard Böhm ARBURG Managing Director Sales and After Sales, explaining the principle of success: "We have recognized that sustainability means past, present and future for ARBURG and sustainability, like our company, is in constant change. We still value our location, resources, employees and stakeholders as much today as we did when the company was founded and are well prepared with this commitment."
