As of January next year, DMG MORI says it will manufacture all its machines in a completely climate-neutral manner – from raw materials to delivery. This adds to the fact that the company’s products already provide the highest energy efficiency on customers’ premises, it adds. And, of course, DMG MORI machines are also used in the production of parts for ‘green’ technologies, it further adds.
“Climate protection concerns each and every one of us. Technological leadership and environmental protection go hand in hand. DMG Mori therefore takes on complete responsibility,” says Christian Thönes, chairman of the Executive Board of DMG Mori Aktiengesellschaft.
“From 2021, the entire value chain of our manufacturing solutions – from raw materials to delivery of our machines to the customer – will be CO2 neutral. This makes DMG MORI one of the first industrial companies worldwide to have a climate-neutral ‘Product Carbon Footprint’. We also consistently improve the energy efficiency of our machines. In the production of environmentally friendly technologies we are an innovation leader.”
Since May 2020, the ‘Company Carbon Footprint’ of DMG MORI, which covers its own value creation, has been climate neutral. DMG MORI avoids emissions in all areas, among others through modern heating, ventilation and cooling concepts. At the same time, the company uses self-generated regenerative energy and purchases exclusively green electricity at almost all locations. The remaining CO2 emissions, which cannot be avoided so far, are compensated by investments in sustainable, certified climate protection projects.
DMG MORI bundles its integrated initiatives for climate-neutrality into three areas: Greenmachine, Greenmode and Greentech.
