About Festo

Driver and shaper of automation and technical education

Each and every day at Festo, we pursue the goal of making tomorrow’s working world more productive, simpler and more sustainable. That’s why we develop solutions for automation and technical education that prepare people, companies and organisations for the digital future in production, and for new technologies.

As an international, family-owned company, we know how important it is to have a solid base. That’s why we don’t just work with representatives around the globe – we also have our own on-site companies with their own local identities. This helps to create our global network of around 20,500 experts who contribute their expertise every single day. They make us a driver and shaper within our industry sector and help to keep the world moving.

On the way to CO2 neutrality

Over the next few years, Festo will massively reduce its CO2 footprint. We have already made enormous progress in 2023 with regard to Scopes 1, 2 and 3.8: since 2024 – two years earlier than planned – the entire Festo Group has been CO2-compensated in Scope 1. Additionally, Festo plans to reduce Scope 1 emissions by around 30% by 2030 and be net-zero by 2040. In Scope 2 and 3.8, the Festo Group has been CO2 neutral since 2024. We are also continuing to invest in energy efficiency measures and are expanding our photovoltaic (PV) systems.
