Committed to the environment
Sustainability plays a crucial role at Wacker Neuson, right from the very first step in product development. We choose environmentally friendly materials wherever possible and factor end-of-life recycling into the design of our machines and equipment.
As a manufacturer of light and compact equipment, we are subject to a wide range of international, national and local regulations aimed at protecting users and the environment. We comply with emissions control, water and soil laws as well as guidelines governing exhaust emissions. User safety, however, is always a top priority. We continually focus on improving ease of use and reducing noise and vibration levels for operators. Our ultimate objective is to deliver products that go above and beyond legal regulations.
Our products are designed for durability and low maintenance – despite being typically deployed under harsh conditions. This reflects our commitment to both customers and the environment.
Protecting the environment and conserving resources are key issues at Wacker Neuson.
