New paths, new goals
How circular economy succeeds at ZEISS
Resources in circles
A sustainable goal
Natural resources are finite. One of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations is therefore to use them sparingly. ZEISS is also committed to this goal – and builds on the circular use of resources.
Especially in the regions of the world where it is causing water shortages. That is why ZEISS is constantly looking for ways to also use water more efficiently, for example, and thus protect the environment.
What 3D printers have to do with sustainability
ZEISS continuously puts its production processes to the test – and works to improve them. The result: fewer and fewer resources are needed.
Into the future with retro
New is not always better – at least not for the climate. When considering new equipment, therefore, two major questions arise: its cost-effectiveness and its sustainability. ZEISS Industrial Quality Solutions has developed a solution to bring machines up to the latest technological standards while conserving resources and saving CO2 emissions.
How ZEISS deals with water scarcity
Water is becoming increasingly scarcer around the world. Especially in arid regions with dry climates. It is therefore all the more important to use it sparingly in these areas and, in fact, anywhere in the world. ZEISS has developed several systems for this purpose – from a collection station for rainwater to recycling.
The future of resource efficiency: ZEISS and the Community of Practice
"We're changing our design methods while shortening production times. We used to need four to six weeks of lead time for processing, but now we only need two days to print a mold. And last but not least, the new process saves us hundreds of thousands of euros every year."
