EQS Group-News: Bucher Industries AG / Key word(s): Sustainability
Bucher Industries publishes its sustainability report 2020. The company reaffirms its sustainability strategy which consists of the four pillars 'Customers', 'Employees', 'Environment' and 'Compliance' and incorporates social, environmental and governance considerations. Bucher Industries uses the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards as the basis for its report on sustainability.
The year 2020 was a difficult one, and Bucher Industries' primary focus was to keep employees safe during the pandemic. Despite the challenges, the Group was able to continue launching new products to help customers be more productive, conduct their work safely, lower costs, and reduce their ecological footprint - the most powerful lever Bucher has to contribute to a sustainable future.
Product highlights in 2020
Bucher Emhart Glass continued with the development of its 'End to End' technology such as the closed-loop control 'GobRadar' which allows for more accurate gob weight control, thus reducing losses in the manufacturing process and thereby lowering the carbon footprint of each container. Bucher Landtechnik has entered into a strategic partnership to launch 'ARA', a tractor-mounted, high-precision sprayer that greatly reduces the use of herbicides in plane fields and row crops.
There for the customers
The Group also launched a review of its sustainability strategy in 2020. The four pillars of 'Customers', 'Employees', 'Environment', and 'Compliance' were reaffirmed and three more topics added: 'Innovative products and optimal solutions', relating to customers, as well as 'Solutions with a purpose' and 'Good corporate governance,' both of which are core to the foundation of the company.
