Kurtz Ersa wants to have completed its transformation to a CO2-neutral company by 2029. The company has now documented its progress towards this goal for the first time in a separate sustainability report. The compilation of all relevant data and information with reference to the fiscal year 2021 provides information about ecological, economic and social aspects at Kurtz Ersa and demonstrates the sustainable transformation at the traditional mechanical engineering company in many ways.
The ESG rating was the next step on the way to becoming a sustainable company. ESG stands for Environment, Social and Governance and measures the voluntary contribution of companies to sustainable development that goes beyond legal requirements. In the first ESG rating, the Kurtz Ersa Group achieved a bronze medal at the first attempt.
Since June 06, 2022, the Kurtz Ersa Group has been a member of the UN Global Compact (UNGC). Kurtz Ersa thus voluntarily supports important developments on the global world market. The focus is on the protection of human and workers' rights, anti-corruption and environmental protection.
Since 1779, Kurtz Ersa, whose history began with a water-powered forge hammer, has stood for the highest quality and reliability. This is the origin of our sustainable growth, pointing to the future.
For generations, we have been implementing sustainable solutions for our customers. In doing so, we always strive for the optimum in terms of quality, costs and delivery service. The search for optimal processes is always carried out under consideration of ecological aspects. Our employees actively participate in the design and implementation of ambitious environmental goals, thereby laying the foundation for sustainable business and action.
