  • Donation to ARGE Streuobst as a signal for environmental protection
  • Concept of sustainability deeply anchored in corporate mission
  • Miba Group aims for CO2 neutrality by 2040

Laakirchen, February 15, 2023 Miba is starting the new business year with a donation of €10,000 to the ARGE Streuobst association as a commitment to the corporate mission "Technologies for a cleaner planet". The donation check was handed over in Laakirchen at the beginning of February.


Miba is starting the new business year with a donation to ARGE Streuobst, setting an example for environmental protection and biodiversity. The non-profit association is dedicated to preserving the natural and biodiversity of Austria's mixed fruit tree population, which has been severely threatened by hail and other extreme events in recent years. "In order to counteract this, we are developing targeted measures to promote orchard cultivation and fruit genetic resources in Austria," explains association chairman Johann Hartl, who personally accepted the symbolic donation check at the Miba Forum in Laakirchen at the beginning of February.


Responsibility for the environment - with Miba technologies and beyond

Last year, Miba already donated to the urban forest rescue project in Osterode, Germany. The fact that it is now once again supporting a sustainability initiative is no coincidence. With its corporate mission "Technologies for a cleaner planet," Miba committed to the goal of contributing to a cleaner and more livable world several years ago. "We do this with our products along the entire energy value chain, but also by taking social responsibility in environmental areas. With the donation to ARGE Streuobst, we want to make a renewed contribution to greater environmental protection in our region," says F. Peter Mitterbauer, Chairman of the Management Board of Miba AG.


"COzero" - Miba plans CO2 neutrality by 2040

Sustainable activities are a matter of great importance to Miba - this is also reflected in the technology group's clear, company-wide climate targets. By using energy efficiently and conserving resources, Miba aims to halve CO2 emissions from its own production by 2030. By 2040, production is targeted to be completely climate-neutral. To complement this, Miba is constantly investing in the expansion of renewable energies: just recently, a new, large-scale photovoltaic system was put into operation on the roofs of Miba Gleitlager in Laakirchen.
