The Initiative Blue Competence

We are Alliance Member of the Sustainability Initiative Blue Competence. Blue Competence is an initiative of the VDMA for promoting and communication of sustainable solutions for the Mechanical Engineering Industry.

Our comprehension of trendsetting sustainability is based on the principles of economic success, fairness, respect & responsibility and includes the dimensions of society, ecology & economy. We comprehend sustainable action in terms of the definition of the Brundtland-report and the definitions of the German “Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung“.

By joining, we commit to complying with the 12 sustainability guidelines of mechanical and plant engineering
