Bühler has announced that it has joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), a global network of nearly 200 forward-thinking companies.
By connecting with WBCSD, Bühler said that it could "make a real impact on global corporate sustainability", and on providing the growing world population with the nourishment and mobility solutions of the future.
“We are delighted to join WBCSD and to help contribute to their mission to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world via the realisation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals," said Stefan Scheiber, Bühler CEO. "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,” Scheiber continued. “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.”
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development is a CEO-led organisation of over 200 companies working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.
The WBCSD galvanises 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.
