20,000 euros of sustainable investment
“Beds4Poor” – HOMAG Cares donation for Tanzania
Dürr's subsidiary HOMAG Group AG decided against giving presents to customers or business partners in 2017. Instead, the company donated 20,000 euros to Future Chances, an organization that uses the money for projects in Africa, such as the construction of beds for poor families and the erection of a primary school.
Sustainable Hidden Champions
The avesco Sustainable Hidden Champions fund invests in successful niche-market companies with a particularly sustainable approach. Dürr AG was one of the roughly 65 companies included in the fund and is now communicated to fund investors as an exemplary investment.
HOMAG reduces energy consumption despite growth in sales
Despite an increase in sales of more than 13% in 2017, we have reduced our energy consumption at the Schopfloch headquarters of Dürr's subsidiary HOMAG Group AG by 1.3% to 8,800,000 kWh. In doing so, we covered over a third of our consumption through our two cogeneration plants. Aside from investing in modern machinery, it is above all the gradual switch to LED lighting that helps to steadily reduce energy costs. We have now equipped 56% of production space and 27% of office space with LED lights.
A wooden house as a youth club
Thanks to Weinmann Holzbausystemtechnik GmbH, a subsidiary of Dürr's HOMAG Group AG, the construction trailer club in Upfingen has a new roof over its head. The roughly 30 square meters are now used as a youth club, having been enthusiastically furnished by the youths themselves.
BlueTech Award for Ecopure® CCF
The Clean Air Alliance of China has presented Dürr with the Bluetech Award for its Ecopure® CCF. This award recognizes the high quality of the space-saving 3-in-1 combination process for exhaust-air purification. At the core of the technology are the catalytic candle filters (CCF), which clean the exhaust air of dust, sulfur dioxide (SOx) and nitrogen oxide (NOx), all at the same time. The process helps to achieve clean gas values that are 50 percent below the current Chinese emission limits.

average system currently installed, than the
entire Dürr Group consumes or generates
worldwide during the same period?
The same applies to the amount of water required.
