Trützschler is taking action! The German company is now striving to achieve three specific and measurable targets that will support its impact on the biggest challenge our planet has ever faced.

Trützschler's commitment

For over 130 years, Trützschler has provided resource-efficient technologies for customers worldwide. As a family-owned company, it has always placed a strong focus on ensuring sustainability for future generations. Today, that focus is sharper than ever – because our planet’s precious climate is changing. In response, Trützschler is taking decisive action to further minimize its environmental impact and maximize its contribution to sustainability. The actions are focused around three specific targets for cutting emissions:

1) Reduction of CO2 emissions by 50 % at the headquarters in Mönchengladbach, Germany, by 2025

2) Climate-neutrality* at all Trützschler locations in Germany by 2030?

3) Climate-neutrality* at all Trützschler locations worldwide by 2035

By pursuing these ambitious targets, the company is going to transform its business. Trützschler’s global teams are now stepping up efforts to accelerate innovative energy management approaches, the shift to renewable power and more sustainable logistics processes. “The shareholders of the Trützschler Group SE set these goals for climate neutrality as part of our commitment to protecting the planet and secure the long-term success of our company”, says Charlotte Fontaine, Deputy Chief Spokesperson for the Hans Trützschler family. Florian Schürenkrämer, Deputy Chief Spokesperson for the Hermann Trützschler family, adds: “That commitment has been a central part of our identity for more than 130 years – and we, the fifth generation of shareholders, are excited about taking the next steps forward in this long tradition.”
