In cooperation with TBD Media Group, the Bloomberg media corporation analysed and evaluated the commitment of industrial companies from a wide range of sectors and defined the 50 most sustainable and climate-aware companies worldwide. Engel is the only plastics machinery manufacturer to be included.
According to Engel, sustainability is firmly anchored in its corporate philosophy. The injection moulding machine manufacturer headquartered in Schwertberg, Austria, is continuously optimising its processes with the aim of using resources even more economically and further strengthening recycling. Engel said it also supports its customers with innovative machine concepts and process technologies in the development of sustainable plastic products and in reducing the carbon footprint in the production of these products. Advancing digitalisation opens up great opportunities for establishing a circular economy, which the company is leveraging with extensive development investments, said Engel.
„Closing material cycles is one of the plastics industry’s priority tasks. We accept this challenge and are developing solutions that enable processed plastic waste to be used far more widely“, said Dr. Stefan Engleder, CEO of the Engel Group, in the video that Bloomberg produced for the Climate Leaders presentation. „From packaging and automobiles to medical products, plastics have become an integral part of our modern life. They help us save energy and make significant contributions to hygiene and safety. As part of the plastics industry, we have a responsibility to ensure that people in all regions of the world are using plastic products responsibly,“ said Engleder.
By including Engel in the group of 50 Climate Leaders, Bloomberg is honouring this commitment and raising public awareness of the industrial commitment to climate and environmental protection. „Transparency is the prerequisite for being able to make a difference quickly“, said Engleder. „It is important here to involve the entire value chain right from the outset, right up to the consumer“.
