Empowering the choice for sustainability
At Materialise, sustainability is how we think, feel, and act as a company and community of creators and visionaries. It is a key element of our mission and shared vision to create a better and healthier world.
Focusing on materiality
We’re always asking, “What can we do to make 3D printing more sustainable?” By reducing the environmental impact of our operations, innovating continuously to advance 3D printing in a sustainable way, and empowering our customers to embed sustainability into their business models, we aim to drive positive outcomes for the environment, business, and society as a whole.
As part of the evolution of our sustainability strategy, we recently completed our first materiality assessment and matrix, identifying six priority topics. Our new sustainability dashboard is now in development and will be published as soon as it’s ready.

Committed to science-based targets
We have joined over 3,000 organizations worldwide in working with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to reduce our emissions in line with climate science. One of our main goals is to reduce our global emissions by 50% by 2025 from 2019 levels — based on preliminary results, by the end of 2021, we had already achieved a 33% reduction.
