2030 Targets

The sustainability goals create a framework for measuring the impact of our innovation and our contribution to a better world.

Our goal is to ensure that Oerlikon is recognized equally for its innovation and its integrity — and for the extent to which our work supports countries’ progress toward achieving the United Nations SDGs. To that end, we focus in particular on the areas in which we can make the greatest impact through our products, services and operations.

We have decided to use 2019 as our baseline for our targets since 2020 was an extraordinary pandemic- impacted year. This allows us to track and compare our progress against a year of normal operations.
