Our vision: an industry leader in environmental protection

Environmental protection is an important aspect of our sustainability activity; wherever possible, we conserve resources, save energy and reduce emissions. We've set ourselves an ambitious goal: We are striving to be a global leader in environmental protection in our industry. In the long term, Miele is aiming at zero impact on climate at its production locations. We support the 2°C target set by international climate policy.
