Sustainability at the Forefront: How Wurth IT is Innovating for a Better Future

Embarking on a critical path towards environmental responsibility and leveraging innovative strategies for a sustainable future.

Sustainability - Our Mission
  Weaving Sustainability into the Fabric of Wurth IT

Our mission is to build a resilient foundation for our company that ensures our prosperity and secures a thriving future for generations to come on this beautiful planet. Sustainability, to us, is an intricate tapestry woven from three essential threads - ecology, economy, and social responsibility.

We place immense value on the insights and aspirations of our stakeholders - they are the compass guiding our sustainability journey.

Moreover, we believe in a two-way relationship with our environment. We diligently analyze our company's influence on nature while also understanding how environmental changes can impact our business. This symbiotic relationship forms the core of our approach, ensuring that as we grow, so does our planet.

  Goals and Transformation Strategy
  • At Wurth IT, we are acutely aware of the importance of sustainability and are committed to actively preserving our planet. As a part of our ongoing endeavor, we have set ambitious targets that align with our vision for a green, sustainable future.
  • Our first major goal is to achieve climate neutrality by 2024 in Scope 1 and 2 as per the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. This implies an unwavering commitment to reducing our carbon footprint through energy efficiency initiatives, renewable energy sources, and carbon offsetting.
  • Secondly, we intend to embrace the concept of circularity by 2030. This implies ensuring that our resources are recycled and returned to the environment or reused in our operations. By doing so, we intend to minimize waste, encourage responsible consumption and production, and contribute to a circular economy.
  • To achieve these robust goals, we have devised a comprehensive transformation strategy. It encompasses many measures, from technological innovation to organizational cultural change.
