Ambitious climate protection goals

Miele will be CO₂ neutral across all its locations from 2021 onwards

Cutting CO₂ emissions with the power of the sun

Mit der Kraft der Sonne CO₂-Emissionen verringern

We are hard at work further reducing CO₂ emissions at our production plants worldwide. To this end, we aim to significantly increase the proportion of self-generated electricity from PV arrays over the coming years. In 2021, first installations in Vienna and Salzburg will commence operation. At Miele's main production plant in Gütersloh and further facilities, we are working full speed on planning additional PV installations. In April of this year, an installation at Miele's Chinese plant in Dongguan covering an area of just under 8150 m² went online, providing around one third of the plant's electricity requirements. This measure alone will save approx. 1,600 tonnes of CO₂. Further installations are at the planning stage and sites for setting up further PV arrays under assessment.
