For us, innovation means more than just state-of-the-art technology

Beyond our mobile imaging solutions, we aim to be pioneers and take responsibility when it comes to sustainability.

Climate neutrality

Health is our foundation. That is why we want to do our part for the health of our planet and the quality of life of future generations, and have been climate neutral at our Ziehm Imaging Global Headquarters since 2019.

What is climate neutrality?

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time, is becoming increasingly noticeable and affects us all. One of the foremost causes is the rapidly increasing amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

When the climate is not affected by processes or actions, when there is a balance between CO2 emissions and the sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere, this is known as 'climate neutrality'.

How are we climate neutral?

In collaboration with Fokus Zukunft, we were able to precisely determine the CO2 emissions of our Global Headquarters. With the help of climate protection certificates and by supporting recognized climate protection projects, resulting emissions are compensated.


We support climate protection projects in developing countries - for a better future.


Mexico: Wind power for people and the climate

As a medical technology company, we attach particular importance to the well-being of people. By building a wind farm in Oaxaca, Mexico, and feeding the renewable energy into the Mexican power grid, we are not only avoiding CO2 emissions, but also helping to create jobs in the construction, operation and maintenance phases. This generates additional income for landowners without affecting the current use of the land, and is thus an important step in the fight against poverty.

In some regions of the country, there is currently no energy generation infrastructure. Increasing the share of renewable energy in the grid through wind power meets the growing demand for electricity and also helps provide energy particularly in more remote areas.

And the environment benefits as well: The natural resources such as coal and natural gas that would have been used to generate electricity in fossil-fuel power plants without the project can be avoided.


India: Clean energy and opportunities for the future

In Siltara, Raipur, clean electrical energy generated from biomass residues is now replacing a portion of the electricity primarily generated on the grid by fossil fuels. The rice husks used for this purpose are sourced from the vicinity of the plant. In addition to an annual reduction of more than 100,000 tons of CO2e, the project helps use resources responsibly and reduces the harmful environmental impact caused by energy production.

It also creates prospects: numerous jobs, improvement in the area’s economy, and new educational opportunities. Investments in a health awareness program and an education program for disadvantaged children are particularly close to our hearts.

The project explicitly opposes discrimination on the basis of gender, origin, religion, sexual orientation or any other grounds.


Within the framework of our 'Quality Awareness' program, we continuously work on improving our products and processes in order to further expand our sustainable approach going into the future.
