2022 Sustainability Report

MTU AEro Engines AG 2022 Sustainability Report

Transforming Aviation

We are shaping change

Whether exploring faraway countries, discovering new cultures, meeting up with friends, family or business partners, or shipping commercial goods—flying brings people together. We want to maintain this global mobility and in the process open up a new perspective: emissions-free flight. We are actively driving this transformation to safeguard a viable future—both for current and future generations and for MTU’s long-term success. This is a part of our responsibility.


We can look back on 2022 as both a successful financial year in challenging times and as a year in which we launched pioneering technology programs and projects for sustainable, zero-emission aviation. The future starts now, so that we can actually achieve the 1.5 degree target. And MTU is playing its part—today, tomorrow, and beyond.

We grew profitably in a challenging environment in 2022 and achieved growth in all business areas. Now it’s time to build on that. Because solid financial and economic foundations are a prerequisite for investing in the future. Having returned to growth, the task now is to build up sufficient momentum for a green transformation of aviation.

At MTU, I see how people work with great enthusiasm. They’re interested in the value they add personally. That’s extraordinary. I look forward to working with them on strategic issues for a sustainable future. My responsibilities include the ecoRoadmap for the ambitious climate targets in site operations we aim to achieve once again in 2023.

In 2022, we once again delivered strong performance for our partners and customers. Our stakeholders can rely on MTU, which has shown itself to be resilient in times of crisis. In addition to this stability, as a technology leader in the industry we stand for change. We want to rethink progress, become even more innovative, more connected, more digital and, above all, more sustainable.
