Environmental protection and sustainability
Sustainable company management is important to the ZwickRoell Group. We are holistically responsible for our products and processes. We operate our company sustainably for the future of our planet and our children.<br/><br/>We believe that: Sustainable action yields returns for our future and must be in harmony with business success, protection of the environment and social responsibility.
We are a CO2-neutral company
- In 2014 ZwickRoell became the first materials testing machine manufacturer to compensate for its calculated greenhouse gas emissions through the purchase of carbon offset certificates. Future plans include a further expansion of this ecological commitment.
- To compensate for the CO2 emissions determined at the headquarters in Ulm, ZwickRoell has joined the Vorarlberger Climate Neutrality Alliance 2025 (turn to zero is now part of illwerke vkw AG). The Alliance compensates for CO2 emissions by means of high-quality carbon offset certificates for international projects such as afforestation programs in Nicaragua or the provision of clean drinking water in Uganda.
- In 2020 ZwickRoell offset 4,296 tons of CO2 emissions. Included in this are direct and indirect emissions from ZwickRoell's Ulm plant (consumption of natural gas and heating oil, operation of company cars, power consumption) plus defined indirect emissions resulting from the company's operations, such as business trips by rail or air, work trips and catering.
