Responsibility in production


Climate change, pollution, and resource scarcity are relevant global challenges facing the production sector. State-of-the-art technology and our integrated management systems are helping us to reduce the environmental impact of our production activities. We use various levers to lower CO2 emissions and help mitigate climate change.

A holistic response to challenges

In order to cut our CO₂ emissions throughout the Group, we drew up MAN’s Climate Strategy in 2011, which included the binding goal of reducing absolute CO₂ emissions from our production plants by 2020.

Systematic management of environmental protection

All MAN production sites have taken the necessary organizational and technical measures to ensure compliance with environmental standards. Our production sites are certified to a quality standard (the majority to ISO 9001). We have set ourselves the target of certifying these sites to the ISO 14001 environmental management standard as well.
