Standing up for integrity together

  • Reiner Winkler, CEO MTU Aero Engines: "MTU Aero Engines is a major player in the global aircraft engine industry and a technology leader that keeps developing promising technical innovations. Corporate Responsibility, that is to say responsible entrepreneurship, is an integral part of our corporate culture. As a fair employer and customer, reliable business partner and committed member of society, we aim to enhance the stakeholders’ trust in our company. High-quality, safe and eco-efficient products are key to our long-term economic viability. This is why product responsibility is a top priority in our Corporate Responsibility efforts."

  • Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer: “We believe in the aviation industry and are convinced that the need, desire and freedom to travel will eventually return. When they do, MTU will be there as a reliable partner to customers worldwide, providing its products and services in the same capacity as before—but we’ll be even more innovative, connected, digital and sustainable”

  • Peter Kameritsch, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer: “Right now, investing in the future is more important than ever. Given the long development times in aviation, we remain undeterred in our efforts to advance and fund our work on the technologies needed for the next generation of aircraft. This is a balancing act in light of the economic crisis in our industry.”

  • Lars Wagner, Chief Operating Officer: “Aviation is at an important threshold, and so is MTU. Despite the current crisis, our sights are still firmly set on our major goal of emissions-free flight. We are pursuing innovative and bold concepts, and in doing so we are also gaining society’s acceptance of our business activities.”

  • Environmental protection

    We are aware of the extensive responsibility we have when it comes to environmental protection – for the product and for its development, manufacture and repair. Product stewardship is where we can make the biggest contribution.

  • Product Responsibility

    More stringent ecological requirements that apply with regard to emissions and aircraft noise call for the development of new propulsion concepts and engine technologies that also satisfy the highest quality and safety standards.

  • Employees

    Diversity and fairness are qualities that differentiate our workforce. Our employees and managers are highly qualified and motivated professionals who drive the company’s success.

  • Society

    MTU recognizes its role as a corporate citizen. The fields in which we believe we can contribute most to society are science and education.

MTU publishes 2020 Sustainability Report

MTU is setting the course for a green future for aviation and for the company. The 2020 business year was a year full of challenges, and not only against the backdrop of the pandemic. Now more than ever, resolute action is required to combat climate change as well. Both these challenges are reflected in the Sustainability Report.
