Strategy and goals

Our sustainability strategy centres on three key objectives: a positive carbon footprint, a circular economy and transparency of information.

A positive carbon footprint means that we remove more CO2 from the atmosphere than we emit. We achieve this by using renewable energies, improving our energy efficiency and supporting reforestation projects. Our goal is to actively contribute to a decrease in global CO2 concentrations and thus help combat climate change.

The circular economy is the second pillar of our strategy. Instead of consuming resources and generating waste, we strive to keep materials and products in the loop. This includes recycling, reuse and the development of long-lasting products. By implementing the principles of a circular economy, we are able to reduce raw material consumption, minimise waste and promote the sustainable use of resources.

Transparency is another important part of our strategy. We are committed to providing open and honest information about our environmental and social impact. This includes the publication of sustainability reports and compliance with international standards. Transparent communication inspires trust among our customers, partners and investors and allows us to supply traceable and verifiable sustainability performance information.

Ecological footprint

Visplay will have a positive environmental impact by 2035 at the latest, measured in terms of all ecological footprint indicators.

Circular economy

To ensure a long service life as well as disposal and recycling, Visplay will accompany every product throughout its entire life cycle until 2035.


By 2035, detailed information on where and how a Visplay product is made will help our customers in their purchasing decisions.

Sustainability report

We want to be open and transparent about our development process, which is why we are now providing information about our commitment on an annual basis. The report was published in June 2024 and covers the key topics in line with our understanding of sustainability.
