We are a benchmark in machine tools and we are moving forward to become so in sustainability as well.

Because our mission pretends the best for people, society and the planet, while we develop our activity.

  • At the forefront of machine tools, we are equally dedicated to setting the standard in sustainability

We are clear that our singular way of doing things has paved the way to take resolute steps in incorporating Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) criteria in our strategy.

Our roadmap aligns our daily management with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, reflecting our ongoing commitment to creating value, as we have been doing since our inception.

CLIMATE AND ENVIRONMENT

We are committed to the climate and the environment

At Danobatgroup, we want to decouple our carbon footprint from our economic growth, while safeguarding and preserving the environment in which we live. This is an ambitious endeavour, one that unfolds over the long term but mandates immediate action.

What actions are we taking?


  • ISO CERTIFICATION: 14001 and 50001

This includes improvements to building insulation, LED lighting, monitoring of energy consumption, monitoring and control of lighting, heating and air conditioning systems, etc.

    Promoting energy self-sufficiency

    We have installed more than 4.160 photovoltaic panels at most of our sites, with plans for further expansion both at our local and international facilities.

    Since 2023, Soraluce has been LEED certified in one of its manufacturing plants.

  • Measuring and reducing our carbon footprint

    We have been measuring Scope 1 and 2 of our carbon footprint for some time and from 2023 we also measure Scope 3 in the main companies of our Group, which will enable us to outline a plan towards decarbonisation shortly.
