Bühler joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), a global network of nearly 200 forward-thinking companies.
“We are delighted to join WBCSD and to help contribute to their mission to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world via the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals," Bühler CEO Stefan Scheiber said. "We want our customers to be successful, we want everyone to have access to safe and healthy food, and we want to live in a climate that supports and sustains them and future generations. No one can manage the task of sustainable food production or sustainable mobility on their own.
“Innovations are key to driving change, and these are sparked with broad, inclusive collaborative networks. We have been joining forces with conscientious market participants to scale innovations for years and the move to join WBCSD’s innovative network is an important step to furthering our sustainable business goals, and most importantly, in developing new means to feed to the world," he added.
Every day, two billion people enjoy foods produced on Bühler equipment; and one billion people travel in vehicles manufactured with parts produced with our machinery. Bühler technologies and solutions are used in the global production and processing of grains, corn, rice, pasta, pulses, cereal, chocolate, snacks, wafers, coffee, and feed for fish, pets, and livestock. They are also used for smartphones, solar panels, diapers, cosmetics, banknotes, energy-efficient buildings, eyeglasses, and more.
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development is a CEO-led organization of over 200 companies working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.
“Industry must step up and take responsibility for reducing environmental impacts. We are already hitting planetary boundaries," said Ian Roberts, Bühler CTO. "Now – more than ever – it is time to take decisive action to ensure the quality of life today and for future generations. In joining the world’s most responsible business leaders in WBCSD, we are broadening our collaborative approach to bringing about the sustainable turnaround that we so urgently need.”
