Reducing energy consumption and emissions

Our goal is to reduce CO2 emissions per trailer by half by 2035. The zero measurement is currently being prepared on the basis of financial years 2019 / 20 and 2020 / 21. The values are being recorded step by step and specifications for implementation in the various plants are being drawn up.

Careful approach to auxiliary and operating materials

During our production process, Schmitz Cargobull uses a range of auxiliary and operating materials that are subject to hazardous goods/substances regulations. In some cases, certain environmental stipulations must be observed when using these types of environment-relevant substances.
