Together for a sustainable future


We have been a pioneer over the past 200 years and will continue to play a leading role in our industry. This applies – in addition to quality and service – in particular to sustainability.


Sustainability is part of the core business of the Wieland Group. Today, we are in the midst of a transformation process that is leaving its mark on every corner of the economy and placing high demands on us. We are ambitious not only in terms of our immediate business objectives, but also measure our performance in terms of what the up-and-coming generations expect of us. This is why we have set ourselves ambitious environmental, social and governance (ESG) targets as part of our sustainability strategy.

Wieland: Sustainable copper production for the green infrastructure of tomorrow 


Reducing the carbon footprint of our products and processes, strengthening the circular economy, and promoting transparency and responsibility at all stages in the supply chain are the main objectives of Wieland's sustainability strategy.




Creating sustainable value lasting for generations – in economic, ecological and social terms: this long-established conviction is what drives us to achieve top performance. We strive to combine commercial success and sustainable action as an industry pioneer.

Dr. Erwin Mayr, CEO

Our sustainability ambition

We want to exploit the opportunities arising from the transformation of the economy, a process that is as ecologically imperative as it is politically driven. Our sustainable business strategy firmly establishes sustainability issues in our day-to-day business – this is the only way we can continue to be successful as a company going forward. As part of this journey, we are rethinking our own processes and developing innovative products that are characterized by resource-friendly manufacturing, considerable efficiency, and durability.
