Sustainable production and mobility

We are aware of the impacts our products have on the environment. To minimize them as much as possible, we use materials efficiently and handle resources carefully. An environmental management system certified by TÜV Süd (ISO 14001) forms the basis for coordinating, monitoring and documenting all processes that are safeguarded by an internal audit process.

As an innovative company and ACEM member, we consider it our responsibility to champion the decarbonization of transport independently of binding legal requirements. Based on the concept of “Right Vehicle, Right Place, Right Energy Carrier”, we share the ACEM strategy for decarbonization of Powered Two-Wheelers (PTWs) by 2050 and in this way support the goals of the European Green Deal and the “Sustainable and Smart Mobility” strategy of the European Commission. Maximum quality and safety for our customers are the focus when it comes to developing products and technology. By making targeted use of different drive technologies, we also want to do our bit to contribute to ecological goals and the ultimate goal of achieving carbon neutrality in the transport sector. We work with our partners to conduct research into key technologies for electric battery-powered vehicles in the low-voltage and high-voltage range.

From 2024, teams competing in MotoGP will be using a fuel (“40 % non-fossil fuel”) that comprises at least 40 % raw materials that are not derived from crude oil. From 2027, this percentage will increase to 100 % and vehicles in motorsport will run entirely on non-fossil fuels.

Key topics and measures

Our response to climate change

As a manufacturing company in the mobility sector, we are very conscious of our responsibility for the environment and climate change. We are taking measures to combat climate change but also to allow us to deal with its consequences. Our procurement strategy focuses on both diversification and choosing local suppliers so we can balance out any disruption in the supply chains.

Environmentally friendly use of energy

We attach great importance to using energy efficiently and are increasingly relying on renewable energies. By installing more photovoltaic systems, we are increasing the use of solar energy, including for our own needs. Our goal is to use our energy ring to keep the amount of power for our own consumption at a high level – the plan is to achieve a figure of around 80 %.

Conserving resources and circular economy

In all processes – procurement, logistics, production – we focus on identifying and exploiting potential to make savings. Reduction, using reusable systems and recycling are effective tools we can employ. We also support social enterprises and award suitable projects primarily to inclusive companies in the region to boost the regional economy.

Waste management

The general conditions for our waste management are stipulated by the ISO 14001 certification. To raise the level of awareness among our employees, we have set up our own interactive e-learning course. The content is constantly adapted and improved to meet the very latest requirements. This means that recyclable materials can be recycled and the actual volumes of waste produced can be reduced significantly. For example, the volume of residual waste was reduced by around 38% in 2022 compared to the reference year of 2019. We therefore significantly exceeded our stated goal of a 10% reduction by 2024.
