Sustainability

In our sustainability strategy we are taking a holistic approach. It includes our products and buildings as well as our suppliers, customers and employees.

Through a variety of strategic measures, we are committed to make a positive contribution to people, society and environmental protection and to avoid negative effects of our business activities. Our sustainability strategy is based on the following principles:

  • systematically documenting specific sustainability key figures
  • sustainability as a part of our employee qualification
  • an integrated approach within our Corporate Responsibility department

We revise our sustainability strategy annually. Using a multi-staged materiality analysis we identify the main topics within the central fields of action for the development of our sustainability strategy.

Climate & Environment
Social Responsibility
Employees
Partner Management
Product Quality
Human Rights

Sustainably and comprehensively standing up for the environment: DMG MORI will manufacture all machines completely climate-neutral from 2021 onwards – from raw materials to delivery (GREENMACHINE). DMG MORI's manufacturing solutions also provide the highest energy efficiency at the customers’ premises (GREENMODE). In addition, DMG MORI machines play a key role in the production of green technologies (GREENTECH). For more information see here.

With its "Energy Policy", last revised in August 2019, DMG MORI has committed itself to the responsible use of energy and resources and the associated reduction of CO2 emissions.

Trust and cooperation are integral parts of our values and of our strategy. Social responsibility is therefore of great importance to DMG MORI and a focal point in our sustainability management. We are committed to society.

Many of our employees make voluntary contribution to society. We are happy to support them in doing so: In the reporting year our production plant DECKEL MAHO in Pfronten was awarded the title “Volunteer-friendly company” by the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior, for example. A total of 150 employees – more than 10% – of DECKEL MAHO Pfronten are engaged in voluntary work. Therefore, we free them from work: for emergency situations, but also for training and exercises during working hours. A flexible work organization and management of working hours facilitate voluntary work. There is an additional bonus system as a special incentive for members of the plant fire brigade.

DMG MORI supports projects in the fields of community, education, science, art, culture, sports and especially young talent. The focus of our social commitment is on our employees, young people, schools and universities, as well as non-profit organizations. Here, we report on our charitable projects and voluntary activities in an exemplary manner – because social commitment is close to our hearts.

Our employees are the key to our success. To master challenging times, we need their full commitment. With trust, transparency and passion, we achieve long-term and sustainable success together. In return, we offer secure and appealing jobs as well as comprehensive development and qualification opportunities.

Sustainability can only be achieved holistically and with partners. That is why we also attach great importance to compliance with environmental and social standards when selecting our partners and suppliers.

Quality is a basic prerequisite for sustainability and customer satisfaction. With our “First Quality” strategy, we create standards that far exceed legal requirements – good is not good enough for us. Because our goal is: 100% satisfied customers.

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.
