Solutions and products from GEBHARDT are constantly optimised against the backdrop of sustainability so that they are adapted to your changing requirements. We take an integrated approach, from production to commissioning, which includes both mechanical and control optimisation with the aim of minimising the total cost of ownership (TCO) and saving energy.
We use renewable energy for production and the creation of systems and system components, and keep in-house materials and economic cycles as short as possible. In service and support, we utilise augmented reality so that we make as few on-site service visits to customers as possible.
The opening of the new industrial park in Sinsheim-Dühren at the end of 2019 marked the end of our use of fossil fuels. The new-build was planned and constructed to high energy efficiency standards.
In May 2010, the GEBHARDT photovoltaic system was completed at our headquarters, and connected to the grid. The panels, on the roofs of halls 1 and 8, supply power of approx. 260 kWp. This means an annual yield of approx. 254,000 kWh and an annual CO2 reduction of approx. 152,880 kg. It is not only the largest system in the area, but with its specially designed substructure, a visual highlight as well.
We’re turning the climate crisis into climate action and thus achieving the targets of the Paris Agreement ten years earlier,’ is the motto of the Climate Initiative, initiated in part by Amazon, and founded in 2019. We also believe that it is high time to make a sustainable contribution to climate protection, and intend to lead by example. By taking part in »The Climate Pledge«, we’re going a step further and committing to climate neutrality by 2040.
»The Climate Pledge« was founded in 2019 and calls on companies and organisations to take collective measures to tackle the climate crisis and to work together to create a more secure planet for future generations.
The signatories undertake to perform regular measurements of greenhouse gas emissions and to report on these measurements.
The signatories undertake to implement decarbonisation strategies in accordance with the Paris Agreement by ensuring business change and innovation, to include improved efficiency, renewable energy, materials reduction and other strategies to reduce CO2 emissions.
The signatories undertake to implement measures to neutralise the remaining emissions through additional, quantifiable, enduring and socially beneficial offsets in order to reduce annual net CO2 emissions to zero by 2040.
VDMA’s Blue Competence sustainability initiative commits us to contribute to a sustainable quality of life with our innovative products and to pursue the goal of achieving more with fewer resources, and to take responsibility. We are conscious of our need to be a role model and rely on respectful conduct with employees, customers and suppliers.
An example of this the GEBHARDT Cheetah® Neo: with its lightweight mast made of aluminium, consumption of energy is reduced. Additionally, there is an internal exchange of energy between the drives and the released energy that cannot be used in any other axis and is instead fed back into the grid.
From the idea to the realization − we create your desired product tailored to your personal requirements.
