2018 Sustainability Report

Gain an insight into MTU’s sustainability activities

Product stewardship is our main focus, but sustainability at MTU goes far beyond climate protection and safe flight operations. It encompasses resource-conserving and environment-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; when it comes to sustainable innovation, the digital transformation of MTU plays a role. Sustainability does not end at the gates of our plants: we involve the supply chain in our activities, too.
