DMG Mori advances its green credentials to the maximum - all machine produced carbon-neutrally from January 2021

1 min read

​As of January next year, DMG Mori says it will manufacture all 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 environmentallyfriendly 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: In addition to its own climate-neutral value creation, DMG MORI will also offset CO2 emissions that arise in the supply chain from 2021 onwards, for example in the production of raw materials such as cast steel. So, from January 2021, customers worldwide will receive completely climate-neutrally produced machines from all DMG Mori production plants.

GREENMODE: For many years, DMG Mori has been optimising the energy and emission efficiency of its machines through specific CELOS apps, consumption-optimized components, such as LED lighting, the recuperation of braking energy and intelligent control of all units.

DMG Mori products also protect the environment and conserve resources during operation at customers’ premises.

GREENTECH: DMG Mori 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. And for many years, DMG Mori has built up specific know-how to support its customers worldwide in ‘Excellence Centers’.
