Germany’s leading engine manufacturer is making every effort to minimize fuel burn, carbon footprint and noise of aero engines, as detailed in the company’s sustainability report for the year 2017, which has just been released. It is for the sixth time now that MTU has prepared this publication on its sustainability performance.
MTU Sustainability Report 2017
Munich, July 4, 2017 – From fiscal year 2017 on, large companies are required to publish social and environmental performance reports. A new law to that effect had been adopted by the German parliament in spring. Germany’s leading engine manufacturer started to disclose such information long before the law was passed. Since 2011, it has released annual sustainability reports outlining in detail how responsibly and sustainably the MTU Group goes about its business. Now MTU is publishing its 2016 Sustainability Report, the fifth of its kind. It combines the reports to the UN Global Compact and to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI G.4) standards and is the first to cover the activities of all of the MTU Group’s fully consolidated companies.
