Bühler Joins the World Business Council for Sustainable Development
Bühler has joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), a global network of nearly 200 forward-thinking companies, which will allow the company to make a real impact on global corporate sustainability.
“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 the world,” Stefan Scheiber, Bühler CEO, said.
Every day, two billion people enjoy foods produced on Bühler equipment; and one billion people travel in vehicles manufactured with parts produced with their machinery, the company says.
WBCSD president and CEO Peter Bakker said: “WBCSD is pleased to welcome Bühler as our newest member. We are dedicated to working towards a transformation of the key systems across society, and this can only be achieved in collaboration with companies across the full value chain. Bühler’s focus on technology can be a real game-changer in sustainability terms. We are keen to begin working together.”
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.
