MANN+HUMMEL: Sustainability report 2021

For us, sustainability is more than a trend. It is deeply embedded in our company’s DNA and in the application of our solutions. Filtration is sustainability. Because: With our portfolio of solutions, we are actively contributing to cleaner mobility, cleaner air, and cleaner water, and, therefore, to protecting people and the environment. Our goal is continuous improvement – which is why we consistently worked on our contribution to corporate sustainability in 2021.

Sustainability Strategy - our understanding

We have a clear understanding of our Corporate Social Responsibility.

As a world-leading filtration company, we focus on filtration with the aim of separating the useful from the harmful. We develop solutions that enable cleaner mobility, air and water and deliver key technologies that pave the way to a cleaner planet.
