As part of its arburgGREENworld programme, leading injection moulding machine supplier Arburg GmbH + Co KG, Lossburg, Germany, has published its 2021 sustainability report. This report shares the company’s plans and practices for long-term sustainability in all relevant areas.

It was stated that the guiding principles of the arburgGREENworld philosophy include giving value to resources, reducing emissions, putting finances to good use for Arburg and its employees and understanding digitalisation as sustainability.

As an example of its sustainability commitment, Arburg put forth its new assembly hall. With an expanded floor area of 28,500 m2, the company is able to use the energy supplied to heat the building in a cost- and carbon-neutral manner; the same is said to be true of its other assembly halls constructed over the recent years. In addition, the use of photovoltaics and geothermal energy contributes significantly to sustainable energy management.

Key figures from the sustainability report include:

  • 90% of all waste generated in 2020 was recycled
  • 20% of the company’s water consumption comes from collected rainwater
  • 9 million kWh of solar energy were generated through photovoltaics and used in house by Arburg in 2020; this corresponds to the energy needs of over 500 four-person households.
  • 3 million kWh of wind energy were generated in 2020; this corresponds to the energy needs of over 340 four-person households
  • Over 90 million kilograms of carbon emissions were saved between 2010 and 2020
