Sustainability is an elementary component of our corporate strategy and our mission. We take responsibility and make our contribution. The United Nations' Agenda 2030 provides guidance with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition to environmental and climate protection, we at DMG MORI focus on the satisfaction and health of our employees. We promote and demand diversity and equal opportunities. We pay attention to compliance in all matters and are committed to the common good with donations and various campaigns.
Machining Transformation (MX)
As a global technology leader, DMG MORI focuses on Machining Transformation (MX). An important key element for this is Green Transformation (GX), which we are actively driving forward through process integration, machine tool automation and digitization solutions. GX has the potential to conserve global resources and thus the environment, as well as to reduce the workload on people and create opportunities for further development.
Process integration makes it possible to perform complex machining on one machine. This conserves resources – for example, one machine replaces three models, the process is accelerated and sources of error are avoided. Automation enables longer machine runtimes with less operator intervention. In addition, digitization creates new opportunities for continuous learning, transparent knowledge sharing and maximizing efficiency. In this way, automation and digitization also help to overcome the shortage of skilled workers.
Climate and environmental protection
As a global technology leader, DMG MORI takes holistic responsibility for resources along the entire value chain – from raw materials to recycling. Sustainability is firmly integrated into all structures and processes.
We focus on resource-efficient, climate and environmentally friendly behavior at DMG MORI and at our partners worldwide. We act responsibly in every stage of our value chain and rely on sustainable business models. We save resources wherever possible along the entire value chain: in the upstream processes of our supply chain, our own production, in machine operation at our customers' sites, as well as in the refurbishing or recycling of our machines.
Our focus is on avoiding and reducing emissions with clearly defined targets and concrete measures, such as the extensive expansion of PV systems at our production sites. Our targets have been reviewed and endorsed by the Science Based Targets initiative, which works to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5 °C. We have also made a group-wide commitment to implement the guidelines of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in 2021, following the recommendations for voluntary and consistent disclosure of climate-related opportunities and risks.
In short: Our manufacturing solutions are produced in a resource-conserving manner, are of high quality, durable, recyclable and maximally efficient thanks to a high degree of process integration and automation.
GREENMODE – resource-efficient machine operation
With GREENMODE, we consistently increase the energy efficiency of our DMG MORI machines and make energy savings of over 30% possible. For example, through consumption-optimized components, such as LED lighting, highly efficient chillers, brake energy recovery, adaptive feed control or advanced energy monitoring.
We also increase resource efficiency with a high degree of technology integration as well as the highest quality and precision of our machines for maximum service life and minimum scrap. Comprehensive automation and digitization solutions enable our machines to run around the clock with maximum efficiency – saving our customers further resources. One example is the Digital Twin. This allows components to be tested virtually first, so that in the subsequent real manufacturing process the result is right from the first attempt.
Customers benefit doubly from our GREENMODE: They save resources and can apply for government subsidies for energy-efficient machines, among other things. DMG MORI will be happy to advise them on this.
By the way: For GREENMODE, DMG MORI AG was the first machine tool manufacturer in Germany to receive the globally valid Energy and Media Efficiency (EME) certificate in the first quarter of 2023. The renowned TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH thus confirms the effectiveness of our energy efficiency measures and our calculation methods.
GREENTECH – Know-how for green technologies
DMG MORI is accelerating the production and further development of green technologies worldwide. We are an innovation leader in the production of environmentally friendly technology: many of our customers manufacture highly innovative components on DMG MORI machines for wind turbines, hydroelectric power plants, hydrogen electrolysis or electromobility, among others. With modern manufacturing processes, such as additive manufacturing, products with reduced weight, optimized functionality as well as minimal transport distances can also be manufactured in a resource-saving manner. In the DMG MORI Excellence Centers, we support customers with our bundled know-how from the idea to the finished product.
The DMG MORI team is the basis of our success – and that is why we focus on the satisfaction, health and thus the motivation of our employees. We live team spirit. We strengthen the togetherness and sense of belonging to the company with numerous measures, such as employee days and events as well as a comprehensive range of health and sports programs, sports competitions and company runs.
We are part of society and take responsibility. We are involved in a wide range of activities and do our bit for people, society and our environment. This includes donations and sponsorships as well as close interaction with universities, clubs and associations. Our commitment focuses on community projects, education, science, art, culture, sports and, in particular, young talent.
