Sustainability

Enabling customers

Production and manufacturing processes inherently require the use of significant energy and natural resources. As a global processing solutions provider across many industries, GEA plays an important role in helping customers produce efficiently and more sustainably.

We enable customers to achieve their climate targets and meet ever-increasing regulations around emissions, water consumption and waste disposal by taking a more circular approach to processes. By integrating automation, machine learning and other GEA digital solutions, our customers can further increase their efficiency and output, improve workplace safety and job satisfaction among their workforce.

And as consumers look for more sustainable and healthier foods and beverages, in particular high-quality proteins, our customers are under pressure to deliver. GEA partners food processors, start-ups and research institutes to find solutions that ensure a growing population benefits from nutritious and ethically-produced products that utilize fewer natural resources.
