Sustainability as a cornerstone of the corporate strategy
The Wirtgen Group is a pioneer in achieving greater mobility in road construction. And sustainability is a cornerstone of the Group’s corporate strategy – something that was clearly demonstrated in the exhibition space dedicated to this topic. The innovations showcased at Bauma also underscored efforts to increase the availability of battery-electric product models and to offer alternative drive technologies, ranging from low-emission to carbon-free.
Furthermore, the new, leading-edge machine and technology solutions are also in line with the Wirtgen Group value proposition: ‘close to our customers’. With its sustainable solutions, the Group wants to support its customers not only in satisfying the growing demand for infrastructure in a rapid and cost-efficient way, but also in already fulfilling the mounting requirements with respect to environmental protection as well as to safeguarding nature and humanity.
