Würth has set itself ambitious goals: In the future, the company aims at harmonizing its ecological, economic and social targets. Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG (AW KG) plans to be carbon-neutral* at all company sites across Germany by the year 2024. Sustainability is part of the core strategy to prepare the company for the future. Würth deliveries to customers are already carbon-neutral today.
AW KG has initiated extensive measures to achieve carbon-neutral operations at its company headquarters in Künzelsau-Gaisbach and all shops and offices across Germany: changing over to electromobility, improving energy efficiency by implementing an energy management system (DIN EN ISO 50001), expansion of in-house power generation, sourcing green energy, compensating for unavoidable CO² emissions.
AW KG plans to change over 50 percent of its packaging to recyclable solutions by 2025 and save an additional 20 percent of overall packaging material compared to 2020. The first projects have already been initiated: Together with a manufacturer of packaging materials, Würth has developed packaging solutions for machining tools that are made to 100 percent from post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR), i.e. from plastic waste recycled in Germany’s dual system for the recycling of packaging.
