Climate protection drives innovation

Climate change is one of the greatest global challenges faced by government, business, and society. It also brings specific opportunities and risks for the transportation and power engineering sectors. The MAN Group is active in both industries and produces trucks, buses, diesel engines, turbomachinery, and special gear units in 13 countries around the world. MAN is thus in a position to make a significant contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions. At the same time, the company is confronted with the increasingly ambitious CO2 reduction targets set by policymakers and with growing customer expectations – in the transportation sector in particular.
