We take responsibility

Castings play a crucial role in our day-to-day lives. Just think of the cast iron used in vehicles transporting goods from A to B. Or the cast iron in wind turbines generating renewable energy. Cast iron will remain inherently useful in the future, as it is a strong, durable and recyclable material. But cast iron production also has a negative impact on the planet’s resources and contributes to climate change.
We need to handle this.

For us, sustainability is about balancing economic growth with corporate social responsibility and reducing our negative environmental impacts. We regard sustainability as an important driver in ensuring the future success of our business, long-term cooperation with our customers and the development of the societies in which we operate. For us, sustainable growth is both a responsibility and a requirement for our continued existence. This is not only the right path to take. Our customers expect it. Our employees of today and tomorrow expect it.

As one of Northern Europe’s largest foundry group, we have a responsibility to work proactively to reduce the negative environmental impacts connected with our operations. Achieving this while also meeting our ambitious growth targets will be a challenge. But we are rising to this challenge.

Sustainability Report 2023

For the second year in a row, we are publishing a sustainability report for the entire BIRN Group.

ESG - Environment, Social & Governance

The BIRN Group will be covered by the new EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive from 2026.

However, we are already documenting and mapping how we work with sustainability throughout the group, and last year we published our first sustainability report. This is not only driven by compliance with the law, it is increasingly becoming a competition parameter that customers and partners expect us as a supplier to adhere with.


The Sustainability Report is thus another step towards a more sustainable business model for the entire Group.
