Münster. Jens Röttgering has signed the City of Münster's Climate City Contract on behalf of Hengst Filtration. Our owner and Chairman of the Administrative Board was thus one of 130 signatories to this public commitment to greater climate protection and concrete contributions to climate neutrality.

It is in our DNA as a filtration specialist to make the planet cleaner. As a manufacturing company, we want to achieve this by 2030 without burning fossil fuels and with 100% green electricity.

Münster has been selected by the EU as one of 100 European pioneering cities for the "100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030" mission. The signatories to the Climate City Contract are a reflection of the entire urban society: private individuals, companies, associations, public institutions and many more.

Hengst has committed to reducing emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels from its own plants and vehicles to zero by 2030 and to sourcing 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources. Since 2021, the German sites have been supplied entirely with green electricity, and since last year both plants in Poland have also been supplied with green electricity. From this year onwards, all remaining locations worldwide are to be supplied with 100% green electricity. The burning of fossil fuels is also to be gradually replaced by 2030.
