Green Energy

100 percent locally generated green energy for Klüber Lubrication

Klüber Lubrication has taken a decisive step into the future: By purchasing 100 percent green electricity generated in the region, the Austrian subsidiary of our company is protecting the environment and living up to its responsibility for the generations to come.

Carbon-neutral electricity generation for our Austrian subsidiary

From fossil to renewable energy sources: Since 1 January 2019, Klüber Lubrication Austria has been obtaining so-called green electricity, i.e. power from renewable sources,  for its office and production facilities. This electricity is generated in a fully carbon-neutral way, i.e. without any emissions.

The newly selected electricity provider generates power primarily in eco-friendly small-scale hydroelectric plants located in the land of Salzburg. This decision is our contribution towards a sustainable use of resources.

"Pushing the limits" in terms of ecological sustainability

True to our corporate principle of "Pushing the limits", we are not resting on our successes so far, but are working on a continuous improvement of our impact on the environment and resources.

Our efforts are not restricted to the immediate effects our actions have on the environment, but we also aim at multiplying positive effects from which our customers benefit when cooperating with us.

Ecological responsibility is a fundamental element of our corporate values

We have made the climate and the environment part of our corporate responsibility since the company was founded in 1929. As a company of the Freudenberg Group, we are also subscribers to the UN Global Compact, the world's largest global sustainability initiative for companies.

Besides resources-friendly production technologies, environmental protection and occupational safety, we also attach great importance to the sustainability effects of our products at the customer. This is illustrated by the following examples:
