Climate

The Würth Group accepts its responsibility ...

to contribute meaningfully to climate protection and to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement.

The transparency of the climate footprint analysis can help us to better understand direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions and to take targeted steps to reduce them, such as obtaining energy from renewable sources, using energy efficiently, and converting the vehicles in our fleet to alternative drive systems. In this way, we strive to grow while respecting the environment.
Material life cycles

We see the raw materials ...

that the Earth provides as family heirlooms.

This means that we should use them with care and respect in order to preserve them for future generations. To achieve this, the Würth Group aims to use resources more efficiently and to minimize the consumption of primary materials. Closed material life cycles are crucial for this purpose. They are the only way that the Würth Group can achieve future growth that is decoupled from the consumption of finite resources.
