Sustainable Solutions
OEMs across many industries require innovative solutions to drive operational efficiencies, access performance insights, tackle energy consumption and safety challenges and underpin overall productivity objectives. Norgren is a world leader in fluid and motion control and together with our commitment to customer collaboration, we spearhead innovation for sustainable solutions that tackle complex production challenges over the short, medium, and long term.
Product stewardship
Identifying and solving small issues before they cause great impact will enhance operational efficiencies overall and reduce environmental impact.
Operational excellence
Procuring proven and premium products while assessing sustainability impacts, may well come with a higher upfront cost in the short term, but the longer-term benefits will ensure a tangible return.
R&D innovation
Instead of settling for systems that always operate at maximum capability, switch thinking to focus on outcomes first, and build a custom, sustainable, operationally efficient solution to get there.

Sustainability in Action

Climate action
Norgren has a sales and service network in 75 countries, technical centres in the USA, Germany, UK and China, and manufacturing facilities around the world. We are committed to operating all of these facilities in a sustainable way to minimise their impact on the environment by reducing energy and water use, pollution, waste and single-use plastics.
Energy and biodiversity
Continuous improvement processes are in place to reduce energy consumption across our manufacturing facilities - from renewable energy, LED lighting, and insulation to energy management systems. Biodiversity considerations are put in place throughout critical processes.
Managing, segregating and re-directing waste to recycling or other appropriate treatment channels, and minimising the use of packaging, paper and single-use plastics and converting to biodegradable alternatives where possible.
Where appropriate, our sites have water reduction actions in place. The majority only use water for domestic purposes but where it is used in manufacturing processes, we strive to use water efficiently and manage this through various initiatives.

Sustainability in Action
