from our CEO


Dear reader,

It gives me great pleasure to present you our very first Sustainability Report. Following the success­ful transformation of Conzzeta, we embarked on our journey as a stand-alone company listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange in early 2021.

“From the outset, our focus has been to create sustainability at the roots of our company and to integrate ESG into our Strategy 2025.”

From the outset, our focus has been to create sustainability at the roots of our company and to integrate ESG into our Strategy 2025. Our focus is to generate the greatest impact for our company, our customers, and the environment. Hence, we developed our material topics in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Bystronic is actively driving change across our entire organization and industry. With our legacy in innovation, we are passionate about creating a sustainable future with sheet metal and beyond. We are accelerating our efforts to advance low-carbon technologies based on the understanding that this will not only benefit us and our customers, but also achieve a positive impact on society at large. We see sustainability as a collaborative effort to advance our industry towards zero carbon emissions in order to adhere to the commitments made under the Paris Agreement and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. We are working diligently to improve sustainability by applying innovative ideas from both inside and outside our company. Our partnerships with progressive startups helps us stay ahead of the curve, and we are confident that these strategies will bring us closer to achieving our sustainability goals.

At Bystronic, we are accelerating our efforts to improve energy and resource efficiency as key drivers to mitigate rising energy prices. One approach we are taking is to use less energy-intensive materials for our own production in order to become more circular; another is to engineer solutions that offer even longer service lives and require less energy to operate.

Our employees around the globe are at the heart of our sustainability efforts. It is not just a strategy but an intrinsic motivation that each and every one of us must embrace. At Bystronic, we are proud of the many initiatives our employees are putting forward and implementing to improve sustainability for us, for our customers, and for our entire industry.

I invite you all to become part of this journey.
