Environmental consciousness and sustainable production processes pose an enormous challenge for many companies.

At FUCHS however, we don’t view sustainability as a mere responsibility, but as a chance. For us and for our customers.  That’s why we don’t just analyse and optimise the sustainability of our own processes at all times, but have – time and time again – measurably improved our customers’ value chains as well.

From individually designed hydraulic oils in construction equipment, over special lubricant solutions in combustion engines to cutting fluids in milling machines - they all reduce friction and therefore save significant amounts of CO2. That’s why we can proudly say that our products don’t just contain 90 years of experience, but also a huge amount of potential for your business and the planet alike.

Lubricants from CO2-neutral* production

As of January 2020, FUCHS is a CO2-neutral* company globally and its customers receive lubricants from CO2-neutral* production worldwide.

FUCHS’ CO2-neutrality* strategy is embedded in its sustainability strategy, which was launched in 2010. In order to implement CO2-neutrality*, FUCHS offsets its CO2 emissions, which have not yet been avoided so far, through carbon-compensation payments by investing in high-quality climate protection projects aimed primarily at promoting renewable energies.

In the medium term, FUCHS intends to gradually reduce its carbon compensation payments and increase its share of renewable energy supplies, while continuing to invest in improving the energy efficiency of its locations.

In the long term, the company also aims to sell CO2-neutral* products to its customers, which requires that FUCHS will in the future be supplied with CO2-neutral* raw materials by its suppliers.
