Sustainability – it's in our nature

Taking care of our environment

The CO2 emissions of today's traffic and transportation afflict our environment in many ways – we are fully aware of that fact. Therefore it’s one of our core values to conduct ourselves ethically, to utilize our resources efficiently and to act responsible towards both the community and the environment.

Our green mission

We developed the industry's lightest mass-produced commercial vehicle wheel, weighing only 34 kg. We recently designed an aerodynamic concept wheel that drastically cuts drag and boosts fuel efficiency. We are certified with ISO 14001/TS 16949 for meeting the highest quality and environmental standards. And we'll continue to put all our knowledge and ingenuity in the development of wheels that leave practically no skid marks on our planet.

Action, not words

All around the globe, we take our Corporate Social Responsibility very serious. Each year, we organize and take part in events that are beneficial to our environment and its people.
