EcoVadis Gold: Sustainability Award 2023

With its recent Gold Medal from Ecovadis and 73 points, ARBURG has made it into the top five per cent of the world's most sustainable industrial companies. In 2023, the points system was made even more stringent. This makes the recognition of the sustainability activities as part of "arburgGREENworld" all the more gratifying.

It has always been the case for ARBURG: regions, family and people are important aspects of the brand promise „WIR SIND DA.“ Sustainable action has always been embedded in the company's corporate DNA, a fact that is reflected in the fundamental decision to produce centrally with short, flexible and transparent supply chains. 72% of supplies come from Germany, and 66% of them from Baden-Württemberg.

In the plastics industry, ARBURG has already been a pioneer in sustainability for decades, and since 2019 all its activities have been brought together in the "arburgGREENworld" program. The program is no longer restricted to strategies on resource efficiency and circular economy, but also now takes an integrated view of sustainability through its own ESG (environmental, social, governance) strategy. "Our goal is to always keep in mind how we as a company can act in a more climate-friendly, social and responsible way," says Samira Uharek, Sustainability Manager at ARBURG, in summary.

Ecovadis is a comprehensive sustainability rating platform for global supply chains. In addition to environmental impact and sustainable procurement, the focus is also on ethics as well as labour and human rights. The Ecovadis rankings take into account the data and supply chains of more than 100,000 companies.
