Rieter's sustainability report shows efforts & progress

Jul '13
Now published for the second time, Rieter’s annual Sustainability Report describes in detail the company’s efforts and progress in economic, social and environmental sustainability. In particular, Rieter once again improved the energy efficiency of its products last year.

In 2012 Rieter made substantial progress in further reducing resources consumption at its production plants. For example, building renovations resulted in considerable energy savings at one plant in the Czech Republic and another one in China. And in Switzerland the waterless urinals installed in 2012 save 600 cubic meters of (drinking) water per year at the Rieter plant in Winterthur, among other locations.

Rieter has been continuously striving for years to improve environmental compatibility and energy efficiency along the entire value-added chain. The focus thereby is particularly on product and process innovations that benefit Rieter customers financially by minimizing their resources consumption. Among other examples in this connection, the Rieter Sustainability Report for 2012 describes a compact spinning innovation that saves 14 percent energy compared with the first-generation machine.
