Sustainability has played an essential role at Plansee since 1921. The Plansee lake is not only our namesake but also our energy source and is more important today than ever. Whether it relates to hydroelectric power, sustainable company management, recycling of materials, or global compliance with labor laws, sustainability has always had multiple dimensions at Plansee and is a core element of our corporate strategy, contributing to our commercial success.
We want to be even more sustainable in future and to use our innovative power to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals. We take a holistic view of sustainability on the basis of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria.
We are focusing on the area in which we can make the biggest difference: our CO2 emissions.
