Green electricity at NETZSCH Pumps & Systems

Green Beyond the Company Colours: NETZSCH Goes for Green Electricity
NETZSCH Pumps & Systems purchases environmentally and climate-friendly green electricity.

"By switching to green electricity, we save 3619 tonnes of CO2 per year. This is another milestone towards carbon neutrality at NETZSCH", Johann Vetter, head of integrated quality management, is pleased to say. Green electricity is electricity generated from renewable energy sources. These include solar radiation, wind and water power, biomass, geothermal energy or even sewage gas. The use of green electricity significantly reduces the consumption of fossil resources and thus protects the climate.

Promoting biodiversity at NETZSCH Pumps & Systems


Benefiting biodiversity and species diversity - NETZSCH converted 8500 square metres of industrial fallow land into ecologically valuable flower meadows. These flowering meadows serve insects, birds, and small animals as food sources, habitats, and refuges. They also promote biodiversity and act as surface and groundwater protection. This significantly increases the quality of life and the recreational value of the landscape.
