Together with its members, who represent all business sectors, the council shares best practices on sustainable development issues and develop tools that change the status quo.
Bühler technologies are used in the production and processing of grains, corn, rice, pasta, pulses, cereal, chocolate, snacks, wafers, coffee, among others.
Every day, two billion people enjoy foods produced on Bühler equipment; and one billion people travel in vehicles manufactured with parts produced by its machinery.
Stefan Scheiber, Bühler CEO, said, innovations are key to driving change, and these are sparked with broad, inclusive collaborative networks.
“We have been joining forces with conscientious market participants to scale innovations for years and the move to join WBCSD is an important step to furthering our sustainable business goals and developing new means to feed the world,” he added.
“We are delighted to join WBCSD and contribute to its mission to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world via the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
“We want everyone to have access to safe and healthy food, and we want to live in a climate that supports and sustains them and future generations.
“No-one can manage the task of sustainable food production or sustainable mobility on their own.”
Peter Bakker, CEO/president, WBCSD said it was pleased to welcome Bühler as its newest member.
“We are dedicated to working towards a transformation of the key systems across society, and this can only be achieved in collaboration with companies across the full value chain,” he said.
“Bühler’s focus on technology can be a real game-changer in sustainability terms. We are keen to begin working together."
