Bühler has joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), a global network of nearly 200 forward-thinking companies. WBCSD is a CEO-led organization of over 200 companies working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world. The WBCSD galvanizes the global business community to create a sustainable future for business, society and the environment. Together with its members, who represent all business sectors, the council shares best practices on sustainable development issues and develops innovative tools that change the status quo.
“We are delighted to join WBCSD and to help contribute to their mission to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world via the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We want our customers to be successful, we want everyone to have access to safe and healthy food, and we want to live in a climate that supports and sustains them and future generations. No one can manage the task of sustainable food production or sustainable mobility on their own,” said Stefan Scheiber, Bühler CEO. “Innovations are key to driving change and these are sparked with broad inclusive collaborative networks. We have been joining forces with conscientious market participants to scale innovations for years and the move to join WBCSD’s innovative network is an important step to furthering our sustainable business goals, and most importantly, in developing new means to feed to world.”
WBCSD President and CEO Peter Bakker said “WBCSD is pleased to welcome Bühler as our newest member. We are dedicated to working towards a transformation of the key systems across society and this can only be achieved in collaboration with companies across the full value chain. Bühler’s focus on technology can be a real game-changer in sustainability terms. We are keen to begin working together.”
Cargill, ADM and DSM also joined the WBCSD to work towards a sustainable turnaround.
