- Hello Theodoor. Tell us, how is sustainability currently reflected in what customers are asking you for?
For most of our customers, sustainability goals are met by achieving greater levels of energy efficiency – something that has always been at the heart of our product development. Our melting and dosing furnaces have this performance criteria designed into their DNA.
‘Carbon neutral production’ is a phrase gaining prominence in discussions with our customers, particularly those servicing the automotive industry. But here too, big picture thinking leads down familiar roads. How do we waste less metal, reduce scrap, use less power, make our processes leaner? Customers know these tactical goals support broader C02 neutral ambitions. And their bottom line.
They also know it’s an area we are committed to, not simply in terms of the solutions we offer but with regards to our own performance as a supplier – our recent commitment to science-based targets for monitoring and measuring our emissions and carbon footprint reflecting this.
