As one of the first in its industry, the foundry group BIRN Group has just released its first sustainability report. The report is an initial step towards a more sustainable business model.

The report includes all the foundry group’s companies, including BIRN, TASSO, ULDALL and VELAMP, all in Denmark, as well as KOCKUMS MASKIN in Sweden, BIRN Germany in Germany, and TASSO BERNAREGGI in Italy.

According to the report, BIRN in Holstebro, Denmark, has made good progress with the strategic focus on sustainability launched earlier this year for the entire foundry group. Despite an increased production of cast iron, BIRN managed to reduce natural gas consumption by a quarter last year, while one-third of the total electricity consumption has now transitioned to renewable energy.
