Enormous geopolitical challenges, climate partnerships, ambitious goals, and successful projects: The Wilo group's sustainability report 2021 documents the company's commitment to sustainable thinking and action.
Team spirit for climate protection
"Climate change remains a major issue of our time. Global warming, water scarcity and severe weather events are challenges to which answers must be found," says Oliver Hermes, President and CEO of the Wilo Group.
"This is where Wilo can make an immense positive contribution with its highly efficient and sustainable products, systems and solutions. Wilo was and is a pioneer in energy efficiency. The Wilo Group moves the vital medium water with innovative solutions, smart products and individual services."
Together with its partners, Wilo is driving forward future-oriented, climate-friendly solutions. We are convinced that we can only master the challenges posed by climate change together. Only through multilateral, cross-border cooperation can we achieve the global climate goals. To this end, we are building bridges between technologies, people and companies and can look back on numerous successful projects and engagements in 2021.
Some highlights of the year
In 2021, Wilo once again underscored its ambitious climate protection goals and signed the "Business Ambition for 1.5 °C".
As part of the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) campaign, companies and organisations are committing to reducing global pollutant emissions to zero by 2050, thereby limiting global warming to 1.5 °C.
In doing so, Wilo is following the call of various organisations such as the UN Global Compact and committing to defining science-based emissions targets. One step along this path is climate-neutral production.
Wilo was already able to make production at the German sites and in Laval, France climate-neutral in 2021. All other locations worldwide will follow in quick succession by 2025.
Together with our international network partners, we are driving forward future-oriented, climate-friendly solutions.
At Wilopark in Dortmund, we are building the "H2 Powerplant", a hydrogen-based, safe, compact and sustainable energy system of the future.
Wilo is thus creating the basis for a self-sufficient, decentralised and regenerative energy supply network and demonstrating how industrial companies can make an essential contribution to climate protection and sustainability with forward-looking and technologically open solutions.
