Munters conducts operations in two business areas: AirTech and FoodTech.
AirTech is a global leader in energy-efficient air treatment for industrial and commercial applications. We offer solutions for mission-critical processes that require exact control of moisture and temperature, with a focus on energy efficiency and sustainable climate systems. Our climate systems also provide better indoor air quality and comfort, as well as increased production capacity.
FoodTech is one of the world’s leading suppliers of innovative, energy-efficient climate systems for livestock farming and greenhouses, as well as software for controlling and optimizing the entire food production value chain. Our solutions increase productivity while contributing to sustainable food production, where strict requirements are placed on quality, animal health and food safety.
Munters has played a role in shaping the industry for climate solutions since the company was founded in 1955. Curiosity and a drive to create pioneering technologies are part of our DNA. Our climate solutions are mission-critical to our customers’ success and contribute to a more sustainable planet.
Sustainability is at the heart of our business. We not only offer energy efficient air treatment solutions for cleaner air and better animal welfare. We also ensure that our business is sustainable by setting ambitious goals in terms of safety, diversity and ethical business practices.
At Munters, sustainability falls into three groups: resource efficiency, responsible business practices and people & society. These three parts form the framework for Munters’ sustainability agenda. On the following pages you can learn more about our work in these areas,
The management of Munters remains firmly convinced that more ambitious targets must be set for sustainability work going forward. The ambition is to set clearer targets for several areas in 2021 and align the sustainability agenda with our overarching strategy.
Since 2018, Munters has committed to report in accordance with the ten principles of the UN Global Compact’s on human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. The code of conduct for employees and the special code of conduct for suppliers are based on these ten principles and explain Munters’ stand on issues such as the environment, social responsibility, business ethics and human rights. Compliance with these policies is monitored each year and reported to the Board of Directors. Munters also reports to CDP (formely known as the Carbon Disclosure Project).
Munters develops and manufactures energy efficient climate control systems for the growth and development of agricultural applications.
Munters offers leading technology, reliability, high performance, superior logistics and best in class support to the Agriculture industry.
By providing the perfect climate, our solutions enable farms to operate and produce under optimum conditions. The innovative product range includes ventilation, evaporative cooling, heating and controls systems.
Munters Agriculture climate control systems comprise broilers, layers, swine/hogs and dairy applications and aim to increase productivity, health and welfare of the animals in these intensive farming applications, always with the lowest total cost of ownership possible for the farmers. The total cost of ownership is signified by the entire system operating costs such as energy consumption, maintenance cost and product life cycle.
Livestock farms face problems such as heat stress, inefficient feed conversion ratio (FCR), diseases in livestock etc. All these issues are related in a direct or indirect way to the climate condition inside the farm buildings and can rapidly affect the production and animal health resulting in a loss of resources.
