The development of sustainable products and services is an important part of our sustainability strategy. Particularly important to us in reducing the environmental footprint of our product development process are:
The main goal of our "Sustainability by Design" program is to make our products ecofriendly beyond legislative requirements. To do so, we develop methods and technologies to measure and reduce the environmental impact of our products.
We take the following steps to achieve our goal:
We also use simulations that save on raw materials and employ additive production technologies such as plastic 3D printing and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) for low-waste and low-energy prototyping.
We then subject the products we have developed to rigorous testing with our Fronius Robustness Tests before starting series production. And because that’s still not nearly enough for us, we have introduced the “Sustainability by Design” program with the objective of advancing an evidence-based, sustainable circular economy.
