Durst's Commitment to a Fully Sustainable Business, with Rico Sauerborn, Durst Group

Rico Sauerborn, the COO of the Durst Group, a global technology leader in the development and manufacturing of large format inkjet printing equipment for graphics, ceramics, textiles, labels and corrugated material discusses Durst's commitment to sustainability

In this episode, Frazer and Rico discuss Durst's commitment to sustainability, shaped by its experience with climate change. The company has achieved net zero Scope 2 emissions and reduced energy consumption by two-thirds compared to 2019. They have also installed a PV power plant, and both of its manufacturing facilities are powered by home-generated solar energy and purchased 100% renewable energy. Durst's real challenge is to address Scope 3 with limited standardization, reducing product carbon footprints for internal benchmarking. 

Finally, while Durst is comfortable driving sustainability on its own, there is also a need to collaborate with the authorities, for example when it comes to developing a new mobility concept for commuting employees.
