People. Planet. Progress.

Sustainability is deeply ingrained in our corporate strategy. We may not have solutions for every issue yet, but PWO does not stand still. We are constantly pushing and reinventing ourselves. We have clear targets, and we will execute on them with discipline and with focus. And it is all about execution because words without actions won’t help us. The entire global business community needs to step up against climate change as everyone knows that we have to act now. We need to move much faster from commitment to action in delivering on decarbonization. It is the right and only way to a sustainable future.

Carlo Lazzarini, CEO, PWO

We are shaping sustainability in three dimensions with our framework

Sustainability has long been a key guiding principle for PWO. But we can’t just leave it at that. The mobility industry has relied on fossil fuels for far too long. To make progress in meeting our climate targets and ensure that our quality of life remains high in the future, CO₂ emissions must be reduced at a faster pace - and we are applying our innovative strength to achieve this. We aim to be leading trendsetters in our industry: PWO aims to be a role model for how companies with our size and focus can put sustainable standards into practice successfully. To do this, we need our employees and our entire network across the supply chain. After all, only by working together can we make mobility fit for the future and establish sustainability as the guiding principle of our industry. We have anchored this holistic approach in our framework

Sure, the company is global, but it has managed to keep its family feel and offers our employees a trusting working environment. And this makes employees happier. It makes them more comfortable.”


Lana Takarenka, CFO, PWO Canada


We believe in science-based solutions. And that’s why we are committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We will reduce our emissions in our own production by almost half by 2030. This what we expect from ourselves. But we will also take responsibility for our supply chain, where we want to reduce emissions by almost a third by 2030.

Dr. Cornelia Ballwießer, CFO, PWO


Our product range is completely combustion independent. This makes our business model future-proof. Our products are at the core of our contribution to sustainable mobility. They spring from our innovation. That is why it is important to me that we are attached to our mission to shape future mobility sustainably through technical innovation.

Johannes Obrecht, COO, PWO
