The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), is an international non-profit organisation that collects and publishes global environmental data from companies and institutions about climate change, water and forests. Arburg’s score puts it at ‘Management’ level, which means that coordinated measures are being taken on climate issues and the company's own strategies in this regard are being further developed.

‘Arburg participated in the Carbon Disclosure Projects for the first time and we are more than satisfied with the result,’ said Bertram Stern, sustainability manager at Arburg. ‘We will remain at Management Level B in 2021 and, where possible, develop further. To achieve this, we will intensify our medium and long-term efforts throughout the company and improve in the categories in which we have been scored ‘C’, both at our headquarters in Lossburg and in all of our subsidiaries. We will try to further reduce any emissions that we can directly influence and to integrate a sustainability strategy into our supply chain management that is specifically geared towards our suppliers.’
