Sustainability on a solid basis.



New on existing foundation

With a new sustainability strategy, the Müller Group is tackling the economic, ecological and social challenges holistically. Müller is not starting from scratch: The Müller companies have been investing in the health and safety of their employees, in the quality of their products, customer solutions and services, as well as in protecting the environment and reducing their energy consumption for decades.



Why a sustainability strategy?

Sustainability is what creates a lasting effect over a longer period of time. The three-pillar model of sustainability shows that sustainable development and future viability can be achieved in a company if economic, ecological and social aspects are implemented simultaneously and on an equal footing.



Economic sustainability
Ensuring the long-term survival of the company through moderate growth.

Generate income that can be reinvested in the future of the company.



Ecological sustainability
Protecting the environment and taking care of nature.

Prevent emissions and conserve resources.



Social sustainability
Consider the impact on people when acting.

Creating framework conditions for employees so that they can carry out their work in a healthy, safe and motivated manner.




Where does the Müller Group focus on?

The Müller Group has summarized its principles of sustainability work in a new Group strategy. It provides the Müller companies with fields of action. They are free to shape their sustainable development within these areas. Müller Group CEO Christian Reinau, who orchestrates sustainability as patron, is convinced: "Every person and every company can make a contribution to the health of our planet."

In workshops, a sustainability team has worked out where levers for sustainable development and future viability can be found within the Müller Group. Thanks to this basis, sustainability initiatives can now be launched. Three equally important thrusts are being pursued:





Climate-neutral Müller GroupResource-saving productsSelf-motivated employees
The goal of climate neutrality is for countries, organizations and companies to work together to reduce CO2 emissions on earth to net zero. The Müller Group has defined a corresponding reduction path and aims to operate and produce completely climate-neutrally by 2045.In the circular economy, materials and products are shared, reused, repaired, refurbished and recycled for as long as possible. This extends the life cycle of products. The Müller Group would like to make a contribution to this by integrating its products into the circular economy.Healthy employees who are motivated and committed to their work are a cornerstone of Müller's success. This is why the well-being of employees has been important to the Müller family for generations. Targeted measures are designed to keep employee satisfaction and employer attractiveness high.
