Climate and environmental protection

Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. Climate protection concerns all of us. Technological leadership and environmental protection are in accord with each other. DMG MORI therefore assumes holistic responsibility and bundles its climate neutrality initiatives into three areas.


DMG MORI will manufacture all machines completely climate-neutral from 2021 onwards - from raw material to delivery to the customer. Since May 2020, the "Company Carbon Footprint" of DMG MORI, based on its own added value, has been climate neutral.

DMG MORI avoids emissions in all areas, through modern heating, ventilation and cooling concepts, among other things. At the same time, DMG MORI uses self-generated regenerative energy and purchases exclusively green electricity at almost all locations.

Our direct CO2 emissions result from the consumption of energy in our production, assembly, sales and service processes. This also applies to our suppliers. We control our own energy consumption and emissions with our energy management system, and we oblige suppliers to use energy-saving and environmentally friendly processes.

DMG MORI has been operating an energy management system according to ISO 50001 since the 2015 financial year. Since 2019, this system focuses on the locations that are most important for energy consumption (eight production locations and one spare parts location). Germany’s TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH has again certified DMG MORI's effective energy management in the 2021 financial year.

The remaining, currently unavoidable CO2 emissions are being offset by investments in sustainable, certified, and internationally recognized climate protection projects (Gold Standard, Verified Carbon Standard, UN Certified Emission Reduction), including a wind power plant in Turkey and a biomass project in China.

In addition to its own climate neutral added value, from 2021 on DMG MORI will also offset the CO2 emissions emerging in the supply chain, for example in the production of raw materials such as cast steel. DMG MORI is thus one of the first industrial companies worldwide to have a climate neutral 'Product Carbon Footprint': from January 2021, customers will receive completely climate neutrally produced machines from all DMG MORI production plants.

DMG MORI products are also protecting the environment and resources during operation at the customer. DMG MORI has been optimizing the energy and emission efficiency of its machines for many years. The regulation possibilities are manifold:

  • specific CELOS APPs,
  • consumption-optimized components, such as LED lighting,
  • the recovery of braking energy or
  • an intelligent control of all aggregates.

Compared to the predecessor models, energy savings of up to 30% can be achieved. In addition, we are always available to advise our customers and provide them with information on energy-saving operations, for example.

DMG MORI pushes green technologies. Our customers manufacture highly innovative components on DMG MORI machines - for example for wind power plants, hydroelectric power plants, fuel cells or electric mobility. This is a major lever to significantly combat climate change.

We are therefore committed to the production and further development of green technologies together with our customers - this is what we summarize under the label "GREENTECH". In Excellence Centers, DMG MORI has been building up specific know-how for its customers worldwide for years.

Climate-Related Financial Disclosure based on TCFD-Recommendations

In order to emphasize our ambitions and make them measurable, DMG MORI has been a certified member of the "Science Based Targets" initiative since September 2021, which aims to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C. The emission targets derived from this for DMG MORI are mandatory minimum targets for us. The "Science Based Targets" initiative has reviewed and certified our company-wide targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions:

  1. DMG MORI AG commits to reduce absolute GHG emissions in scope 1 and 2 by 46.2% until 2030 – using 2019 as a base year.
  2. DMG MORI AG commits to reduce absolute GHG emissions in scope 3 by 13.5% until 2030.
  3. DMG MORI AG aims to achieve a science-based net zero emissions reduction target in the long term by 2050 at the latest.

Furthermore, we are committed to implementing the guidelines of the "Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures" (TCFD) and thus follow the recommendations for voluntary and consistent disclosure of climate-related information. The detailed report is available here:

Sustainability Report

We report on our activities annually in the DMG MORI sustainability report. It provides a detailed and comprehensive sustainability balance.

The general rule at DMG MORI is: We seek constant dialogue with customers, employees and business partners in order to develop our strategy on this basis. With our sustainability report, we provide comprehensive information about our approaches and measures in the area of sustainability.

* with the triad "Avoid. Reduce. Compensate."
