08/10/2012 - Rieter Sustainability Report 2011 published

Sustainability has played an important role in the Rieter business strategy for many years. This year for the first time, Rieter separately publishes a fully comprehensive sustainability report.

This 32-page report describes the company’s economic, social and environmental sustainability measures, richly underpinned with key figures, graphic illustrations and commentaries accordingly.

Among other achievements, Rieter has further reduced the occupational accident rate and increased the average training time per employee. In China and India, Rieter launched new vocational training courses similar to apprenticeships in 2011.

For years Rieter has continuously strived to improve environmental compatibility and energy efficiency along the entire value-added chain. Customers particularly appreciate their substantially lower resource consumption thanks to Rieter’s product and process innovations.

With regard to corporate output, Rieter’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions have both reduced by about 20 percent compared with the previous year.
The entire sustainability report is published in German and English on the Rieter website at:  www.rieter.com.
