We take responsibility
along the entire value chain

Sustainability is an inherent part of our corporate philosophy. So, it is extremely important to us that MKN cooking equipment is not only manufactured as environmentally friendly as possible but also has a long service life. This saves resources, reduces carbon emissions and avoids waste. Unavoidable waste is fed into the recycling process or disposed of in accordance with legal requirements. However, a sole focus on our products and production processes is simply not enough for a globally operating and commercially successful business. We take responsiblity when selecting and working together with our partners and suppliers. More than 80% of our suppliers come from Germany and our equipment is produced 100% in Germany. We can therefore guarantee fair working conditions and also reduce CO2 emissions through shorter transport distances. Our aim is to integrate sustainable action along the entire value chain while pursuing further development of measures to achieve long-term goals.

< 80% suppliers in Germany means shorter transport distances and a reduction of CO2 emissions

100% production in Germany at one location. <35% reduction of CO2 due to new production facilities and technology

Reduction in corporate travel and increased use of digital communication/Digital Centre cuts down CO2 emissions

Regional service partners and online training avoid travel expenses

Taking sustainability a step further

When it comes to sustainability, we not only focus on our own processes, but also on how we work with suppliers and our social commitment. The following issues are just some of those particularly important to us:

  • a sustainable supply chain
  • environmental and fair working conditions for our suppliers
  • cooperation with regional partners
  • continued support of social projects in our local area

As reliable, long-term partner, we strive to provide future-oriented solutions offering maximum benefit. For our customers. For our employees. For our environment.
