Corporate governance

 

Goals 2025

Comprehensive sustainability management

MTU’s forward-looking corporate responsibility strategy is implemented in the MTU strategy, and the fields of action are synchronized across all departments, with the goals integrated into MTU’s processes.

A Group-wide climate strategy has been adopted.

Change mindset sustainability in the Group is being strengthened.

MTU is perceived as a company that operates sustainably and carries out impressive sustainability activities.

Ensuring the security of information and systems Protecting personal data in all areas of the company Compliance as part of the corporate culture Active commitment to combating corruption in all business areas Ensuring adherence to embargo and export guidelines 

Consistent refinements to existing processes and regulations continue to ensure ongoing compliance with applicable legal requirements and the security of our data, information and systems in all areas of the company. 

These take into account regulatory changes as well as technical developments.

MTU’s Code of Conduct, the rules and regulations derived from them, and the “Tone from the Top” continue to help anchor compliance as part of MTU’s corporate culture.

Raising employee awareness through MTU’s training program, reviewing relevant business processes through regular audits, and a zero-tolerance policy will continue to complement this compliance approach at MTU in the future.

Regular and open dialogue with all stakeholder groups

More transparent reporting and improvement in ratings and stakeholder dialogue through a material increase in sustainability management.

MTU is taking up current formats for the sustainability dialogue with its employees and stakeholders.

Reduction in particulate emissions through the use of sustainable aviation fuels and revolutionary gas turbine concepts

Avoidance of (fuel cell) or significant reduction in (revolutionary gas turbine concepts) NOx emissions

NOx=Nitrogen oxides, CO=Carbon monoxide, UHC=unburned hydrocarbons, EPNdB=Effective Perceived Noise Decibels

Procurement practices

 

Goals 2025

Human and employee rights are central components of our business relationships. In our cooperation with suppliers, we pay attention to a resource- and environment-friendly value chain

The new CR requirements for the supply chain resulting from Germany’s Due Diligence Act are consistently implemented

The Code of Conduct reflects the contents of the Due Diligence Act, is a binding part of the contract, and compliance with it is regularly reviewed.

Risk management is implemented in our processes.

Supporting IT systems are implemented.

CR is embedded in our contracts and sourcing decisions. In this way, we ensure social and ecological standards

CR assessments of suppliers are incorporated into sourcing decisions.

Our employees have been trained in CR and suppliers’ awareness has been raised.

Responsible handling of conflict minerals is ensured.

Automated queries ensure compliance with and verification of contractual requirements.

Manufacturing and maintenance

 

Goals 2025

Goals 2030

Reduce CO 2 emissions at all production sites (Scope 1&2) 

Reduction of CO 2 emissions at Munich site (Scope 1&2) with the aim of carbon-neutral production in line with the ecoRoadmap by end of 2021

The long-term goal is carbon-neutral production at all sites.

Continuously improve resource efficiency

Continuous improvement of resource efficiency (e.g. energy, water, raw materials, and consumables and supplies), specifications by site managers 

Efficient management processes have been established. 

Efficient management processes have been established at the sites to reduce adverse environmental impact

Advanced procedures in site and plant operations.

Improvements in climate protection achieved through advanced procedures in site and plant operations.

Raising employee awareness of climate protection in production

Regular external and internal communication as well as raising of employees’ awareness

Employees

 

Goals 2025

Ensure compliance with human rights at our own sites

Human rights continue to be fully respected at all of our own sites

Provide active and targeted employee development at at all hierarchical levels
