GF Released Sustainability Report 2018

03.05.2019

Over the last years, Georg Fischer (GF) implemented various measures to improve sustainability. Thanks to these initiatives, emissions have been reduced and in particular, the CO2 footprint was improved again.

To define its commitment and to regularly assess it, in 2015, GF established 18 ambitious sustainability targets in the four categories Products & Innovation, Procurement & Logistics, People & Safety as well as Environment & Energy.

In 2018, GF achieved again substantial progress. The company generated 47 percent of its sales with products that have a social or environmental benefit for its customers. Examples include safe and leak-free distribution of water and gas, lighter components for vehicles and more energy-efficient production of metal products with GF machine tools.

GF reduced its share of non-recycled waste by six percentage points compared to the previous year, an outcome that was 16 percentage points better than the target. GF lowered its CO2-equivalent emissions year-on-year by two percentage points. Emissions were therefore five percentage points below the set target.

Every year, GF issues a Sustainability Report to document the development. The new Sustainability Report is now available on the GF website.
