Bielefeld, Germany – DMG MORI will manufacture all machines (from raw materials to delivery) completely climate-neutral from 2021 onwards. The company's manufacturing / production solutions also provide the highest energy efficiency at the customers’ premises. DMG MORI machines play a key role in the production of green technologies. Since May 2020, the ‘Company Carbon Footprint’ of the firm, which covers its own value creation, has been climate neutral. The company avoids emissions in all areas, among others through modern heating, ventilation, and cooling concepts. Simultaneously, it uses self-generated regenerative energy and purchases exclusively green electricity at almost every location. The residual CO2 emissions, which cannot be avoided, are compensated by investments in sustainable and certified climate protection projects.
It bundles its integrated initiatives for climate-neutrality into three areas. Firstly, in 'GREENMACHINE', the company to offset CO2 emissions that occur in the supply chain and customers worldwide will receive completely climate-neutrally produced machines from all its production plants from 2021 onwards, for example in the production of raw materials such as cast steel.
Secondly, 'GREENMODE' focuses on energy and emission-efficient machine operation through specific CELOS apps, consumption-optimized components such as LED lighting, the recuperation of braking energy and intelligent control of all units. Lastly, in 'GREENTECH', the company advances the production and further development of green technologies. Customers use DMG MORI machines to produce highly innovative components, e.g. parts for wind power plants, hydroelectric power plants, fuel cells or electric mobility. The company has built up specific know-how in Excellence Centers for many years, to support its customers worldwide.
“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,” explained Christian Thönes, Chairman - Executive Board, 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.”
