How ZEISS understands sustainability – three focus topics

  • For a green future

    For a climate friendly future

    The climate is continuing to change. The global community has set itself big targets to mitigate the consequences. ZEISS wants to play its part to help achieve them.

  • A round thing – circular economy at ZEISS

    In line with circular economy

    The circular use of natural resources is one way to use them sparingly. ZEISS therefore strives for a circular use of resources with a view to reducing the impact on the environment.

  • For the good of the community

    ZEISS generates added value for a more sustainable society through its products and solutions. What’s more, ZEISS is committed to the common good, education and research through sponsorships.

ZEISS strategy for sustainability
