Sustainability and climate protection

Reducing CO2 emissions at our customer sites and at Festo

Climate protection begins within your own four walls. That is why at Festo we are pursuing a sustainability strategy that is aligned with the United Nations Development Goals (SDGs). From 2023 onwards, all our buildings in Germany as well as our global production and logistics sites will be carbon neutral with regard to Scope 1 and 2. From 2026, the entire Festo Group will be carbon neutral. With our decision to go carbon neutral, we are taking responsibility as a family-owned company – you can read here exactly what that means for us and how we support you in achieving your own goals.

In addition to Scope 1 and 2 emissions, Scope 3 emissions also play an important role. This looks at emissions produced by purchasing and logistics, product design and how products are used by our customers. All our employees from all the different corporate divisions are motivated to support you by making their own personal contribution to help you on your way to climate neutrality. You can get to know a few of them here.

Acting sustainably together

Charlotte Köppler, Global Key Account Manager for Food and Packaging, is of the opinion that, "Acting sustainably does not mean doing less, but doing more." Together with her global team, she supports our customers in accelerating change towards a sustainable future.

Sustainability strategy supported by Festo Energy Saving Services

The term "sustainability" all too often turns into mere lip service. This is not the case at Wellspect. This leading global manufacturer of solutions for medical continence care has integrated sustainability in its corporate strategy and is committed to implementing it. It's no wonder that the company relies on Festo Energy Saving Services at its plant in Mölndal near Gothenburg, Sweden, which save Wellspect €37,000 a year in energy costs.

Energy efficient machine design - quick wins to reduce compressed air use

This webinar on demand looks at designing machines that consume less compressed air and therefore improve the total cost of ownership for your customer. Many manufacturers and machine builders recognise their responsibility to be more energy efficient and reduce their carbon emissions. Our presenters discuss the latest techniques for designing machines optimised for compressed air usage. With an eye on practical solutions that don‘t compromise performance or necessarily add to costs, they will focus on the following four application areas:

  • Compressed air preparation – a forgotten commodity or an easy ‘low hanging fruit’ opportunity?
  • Selection of actuators – a chance to reduce size, reduce energy consumption and decrease moving mass and reduce cost, why wouldn’t you?
  • Control systems – stick with what you always use, or the chance to optimise on consumption AND performance?
  • Connection technology – so simple it doesn’t matter, or so simple it’s the easiest way to make improvements?
