MOSCOW (MRC) -- Effective 1 Jan. 2023, KraussMaffei Group has appointed Dr. Alexandra Coffey as Senior Sustainability Manager, reporting directly to the Management Board, said Sustainableplastics.
The position has been newly created by KraussMaffei and underscores the company’s dedication to becoming a completely sustainable company in the medium and long term. More specifically, KraussMaffei plans to reach the EcoVadis “Gold” rating level by 2026 and to achieve a corporate carbon footprint of zero and operate all plants worldwide in a CO2-neutral manner by 2030. In 2035, KraussMaffei will have a Product Carbon Footprint of zero, manufacturing its entire range of machines in a CO2-neutral manner.
Coffey was previously with the Schorghuber Group, where she was also responsible for sustainability. Her thematic focus areas are CO2, single-use plastics, the environment and supply chain sourcing obligations.
Her task will now be to further develop and implement KraussMaffei's global sustainability strategy. The company has set itself the goal of being one of the best machine and system manufacturers for the plastics industry in the areas of sustainability and cost-effectiveness by 2025.
"Striving for greater sustainability is an absolute must for us as a leading manufacturer of machinery and equipment for the production and processing of plastics and rubber. We are pursuing ambitious goals in this regard and are positioning ourselves accordingly for the future” said KraussMaffei board member Jorg Bremer.
We remind, KraussMaffei Group will transfer its KraussMaffei High Performance AG business into an independent unit operating under the Netstal name on 1 October. The new subgroup will manage the Netstal new machines and service business worldwide from its subsidiaries, according to KraussMaffei CEO Michael Ruf.
