Together with our customers, we develop injection moulding solutions for resource-saving and energy-efficient plastics processing. With "be the first" we express that as a family business we are a stable employer for our employees.

Sustainability in the plastics industry

ENGEL as an enabler of the circular economy

Plastic is a valuable resource. Far too valuable to dispose of after a single use. Therefore, it is vital for the future to keep it in cycles. ENGEL provides innovative machine concepts and associated technologies. With their help, recycled plastic can be processed reliably. The plastic can be available as regrind or regranulate.

Our technologies enable "design for recycling". This means that our customers' products can be returned to the cycle at the end of their service life.

Thanks to ENGEL machines and technologies, used plastics can be processed reliably and plastic cycles can be closed.

Strong partner in the supply chain

The sustainability goal is further supported by the close cooperation of companies along the value chain. Market participants network on horizontal platforms to exchange information and data: from raw material production to processing to recycling and even further towards trade and consumers.

50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders

Sustainability is firmly anchored in our corporate philosophy. By including ENGEL in the group of 50 Climate Leaders, Bloomberg is honouring this commitment and giving the industrial commitment to climate and environmental protection a higher profile in the public eye.

JKU LIT Factory

The LIT Factory of the Linz Institute of Technology (LIT) at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) in Linz is a networked teaching, learning and research factory for smart polymer processing and digitalisation. ENGEL is a long-standing partner and sponsor of the institute and conducts research with its own test facilities on site.

R-Cycle

With digital product passports, R-Cycle creates the basis for a high-quality recycling process by automatically recording recycling-relevant information as early as the product manufacturing stage. The prerequisite for closing material cycles is information transparency along the entire value chain.

Platform Verpackung mit Zukunft

In order to close the loop, all actors along the value chain in Austria need to join forces. In order to ensure that packaging does not end up in the environment, but is returned to the product cycle, new effective alliances must be formed. This is why ENGEL, as a member of the Packaging with a Future platform, is working for the first time with new partners along the value chain from its location in Austria.

New Plastics Economy

In mid-March 2019, ENGEL became one of the first plastics machinery companies to sign the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's global commitment to the New Plastics Economy. Together with more than 350 companies, universities and organisations, this cooperation is committed to the topic of circular economy and sustainability worldwide.

Alliance to End Plastic Waste

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW) consists of around 50 major global companies - ENGEL is one of them. The primary goal of the alliance is to reduce or prevent environmental pollution caused by plastic waste.

EcoVadis Rating

ENGEL is one of the most sustainable industrial companies worldwide. This was confirmed by the current sustainability ranking on the EcoVadis platform. ENGEL has improved its ranking from silver to gold and is the only injection moulding machine manufacturer with gold status to date.

Environmental Social Governance

Our vision is an absolutely sustainable and at the same time profitable plastics industry. End consumers worldwide should be able to trust that they are using clean plastic products in their everyday lives that are manufactured in a resource-conserving manner and whose supply or value chains are ethically sound. This is how we ensure prosperity, especially for our successor generations.
