Guiding principle 05: Energy & emissions
By defining ’energy & emissions’ as a focal point, we shall be helping to improve the general climate balance. To accomplish this, we have defined the following objectives:
- 2033: Reduction of CO2 emissions by 50%
- 2045: Achieving the zero carbon target with CO2 emissions of 0%
To achieve these targets, we are committed primarily to greater use and expansion of renewable energies – first and foremost being solar power. For this, we use a total of three photovoltaic systems that generate about 3.76 GWh of electricity annually. This is enough power to supply about 1000 households with electricity for a whole year.
Guiding principle 06: Product responsibility
By defining ’product responsibility’ as a focal point, we wish to assure a sustainable value chain. An integral aspect of this, for MS XTEC as well for our suppliers, needs to be an awareness of ecological and social criteria as well as the conservation of resources right across the entire value chain. To help us to accomplish this aim, the Sustainability Supplier Guideline we have drawn up is already in use.
We call upon our direct suppliers to obtain a commitment from their sub-suppliers to comply with the guidelines in this document. In this way, we seek to ensure that the standards we set are communicated to and adhered to, right across the entire value chain. In the long term, we only wish to use suppliers who have at least introduced the standards we have set in their company or who have developed and established their own sustainability guidelines.
Guiding principle 07: Corporate success and jobs
To safeguard our long-term success as a company, we are committed to having production processes that comply with the very latest high-tech standards. To this end, we have launched an automation project that envisages the acquisition of 24 new 5-axis machining centers.
Firstly, through the use of these high-tech machines, we can reduce production and labor costs in the long term. This is because robots can perform simple tasks such as placement, loading and unloading, etc. efficiently and in a time-saving manner. Secondly, we are then able to provide high-quality jobs with the help of which skilled staff can be trained up to satisfy the requirements of modern industry. The MS Group’s own training center also delivers specialist training to our new skilled staff. Through this symbiosis of newly emerging skilled jobs and in-house training, we can safeguard the success of our company as well as jobs at this location, which in turn benefits our region.
