FUCHS sees sustainability as core element of sound corporate management. The Sustainability Guideline published in 2012 contains standards for responsible business practices and is considered as binding sustainability framework for the Group's global business operations. Based on this, FUCHS is committed to three central sustainability targets, which are operationalized by a comprehensive key performance indicator system and documented in the annual Sustainability Report.
Economic: Our goal is to increase company and shareholder value both reliably and continuously.
Ecological: We strive to protect the precious resources of soil, water and air.
Social: We take over responsibility toward our employees and society.
Sustainability management at FUCHS WISURA GmbH
Always keeping an eye on the environment
As a manufacturer, we have two goals:
- We want to offer our customers highly effective lubricants that are as easy and cost-effective as possible to use.
- We want to make our products as environmentally friendly as possible.
- We want to find the perfect balance between the optimum efficiency of a lubricant and its ecological compatibility.
And we are quite good at this. For example, we have succeeded in developing highly efficient, chlorine-free cooling lubricants for stainless steel forming. The majority of lubricants from FUCHS WISURA are now free from heavy metals and chlorine and are virtually odorless and emission-free.
Moreover, we always bear our ecological footprint in mind when it comes to our production processes: we have been certified as per the environmental management system DIN ISO 14001 since 2010.
