Every two weeks, five experts from different Körber Business Areas exchange ideas on sustainability aspects in machine manufacturing, develop items such as calculation tools for product life cycle assessments, and support developers and engineers in their work by transferring knowledge to help them follow sustainable concepts.
For Bernhard Gerl, sustainable behavior is a deliberate act and one that he considers to be without any alternative. “We need to think carefully about the footprint we want to leave in this world and the foundation we are laying for future generations with our actions and economies. We must accept this responsibility and translate it into concrete action,” says Gerl, who has been working for more than four years as a project engineer in the design department of the Körber Business Area Pharma at the Markt Schwaben site. Moreover, he has been the moderator of the group-wide Ecodesign think tank since May 2022.
