Facts & Figures
Nowadays, companies like ours face the challenges of not only meeting our customers' expectations, but also those of government authorities. We, too, want to do our part to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement; we, too, want to successfully pass our customers' audits; and we, too, want to show what sustainability means at GF Casting Solutions.
We put our focus on sustainability in three different areas and do our absolute best to achieve maximum success in each one. Through lightweight solutions, we reduce pressure on the environment and energy use, while offering secure workplaces in both health and economic terms.
For these reasons, we repeatedly set new goals, work as a company to meet them and strive to continuously improve.
