“Blue Competence” sustainability

As an internationally operating company, we see it as an essential part of our social responsibility to commit ourselves to the careful handling of natural resources and the protection of the environment and nature. This is why Weckenmann is committed to the "Blue Competence" initiative of the VDMA (German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association).

The aim of the initiative is to bundle the collective know-how from various mechanical engineering industries and to create sustainable solutions to protect the environment in harmony with the economy, ecology and society. The various trade associations of the VDMA and other mechanical engineering organisations are involved in this initiative. Around 400 companies are members of the initiative – among them Weckenmann.

The Blue Competence partners have a common goal:

... to shape the world with technology – also the day after tomorrow. The challenges posed by the megatrends of our time can only be mastered with cutting-edge technology and technical innovations.

... to achieve more with fewer resources. The world's population is growing, but natural resources are not. To enable all of us to live with dignity on this earth in the future, we must use the existing resources sparingly. This is achieved by increasing efficiency.

… to set an example. The engineering sector demonstrates with every new development that sustainability simultaneously increases efficiency. Resource efficiency and cost efficiency are two sides of the same coin.

Responsibility towards society and the environment has always been a guiding principle of corporate activity and conduct in the German mechanical engineering sector. With the sustainability code, the companies united under the Blue Competence initiative are continuing the high social and ethical standards and consider this a prerequisite for sustainable business success.
