Sustainability is part and parcel of the GF business model. GF made further progress regarding this topic in 2014. GF Piping Systems ensures for its customers pipe networks free of leaks and contamination. GF Automotive provides light-weight components which minimize vehicle weight and lower CO2 emissions. And GF Machining Solutions makes production processes more economical and efficient with its high-precision machine tools.
GF further implemented several worldwide sustainability initiatives which, despite increased sales and a higher production volume, allowed to significantly improve key ratios such as energy, water consumption and CO2 emissions.
The accident rate in 2014 is the lowest of the last five years. GF will certainly not relax its efforts to significantly reduce it in the future. Every accident is one too many.
