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.

Strategy

Sustainability means different things to different people, but at Materialise, we focus on the five pillars: People, Planet, Partnerships, Prosperity, and Peace. Our aim is to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations.

Our sustainability strategy is based on creating shared value. It’s not just about doing a few nice things here and there. It’s about integrating environmental and social concerns into the way we operate and the products and services we offer to our customers. It’s about enabling new solutions and business models that are balanced with economic concerns while striving for the highest standards of social and environmental performance. It’s about taking the 3D industry to a new level and Empowering the Choice for Sustainability. We complement this with a global philanthropic program.
