For us sustainability means following long-term targets responsibly and reliably instead of focusing on short-term success. We seek to continually optimise our products and our production methods. Through this, we contribute to a better environment.
For example, over the last years, the ifm group of companies has managed to reduce its water consumption by 66% per produced unit while doubling the number of units produced. On a per unit basis, the amount of waste has been reduced by approx. 10% since 1999 and the energy consumption by 12% in the last 10 years. Moreover, we will implement further environmentally friendly measures aimed at sustainability in all of our processes.
