Sustainability targets

Our goals are organized into economic, environmental and social targets. The targets are focusing on activities such as improving safety at work, making optimal use of resources, reducing costs, developing innovative and energy-efficient products and ensuring sustainability in the supply chain.

  • Economic targets

It becomes a motor for sustainable development when optimized material and energy flows improve the performance of both the company and customers and drive the protection of natural resources and the climate. GF Machining Solutions shares the economic targets of its parent company, Georg Fischer.

  • Environmental targets
    In line with Georg Fischer’s environmental targets, GF Machining Solutions is ISO 14001:2015 certified, meeting requirements of an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects.

Risk management

The GF Enterprise Risk Management consists of the areas risk management, internal control systems, business continuity management, and compliance and addresses systematic risk identification and risk assessment as well as the definition and implementation of measures for risk avoidance and risk minimization.

Georg Fischer is governed in these efforts by the philosophy of risk management. Manageable risks are accepted provided they are offset by substantial economic opportunities to increase the enterprise value. If, despite the measures taken, identified risks cannot be avoided, significantly reduced or managed, Georg Fischer engages in risk transfer by concluding appropriate insurance policies.
