2020 Sustainability Report

Our ideas and concepts for a sustainable future

Product stewardship is our main focus, but sustainability at MTU goes far beyond climate action and safe flight operations. It encompasses resource-conserving and environmentally friendly production and maintenance as well as fair and safe working conditions, equal opportunities for all employees and high-quality training and development. Compliance forms a key part of our corporate culture and sustainability does not end at the gates of our plants: we involve the supply chain in our activities, too.

Reiner Winkler Chief Executive Officer MTU Aero Engines AG
“We are setting the course for a green future for aviation and for MTU. And this in a time that presents major challenges we must all strive to overcome. The crisis we are facing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the importance of decisive and responsible action. At the same time, we should see it as an opportunity for change—and that is precisely what we are doing.” Foreword
