For the release of its publication "Economie Circulaire: les mécaniciens dans la boucle" (Circular Economy: mechanical engineering companies in the loop), the FIM* organized a press breakfast November 26.

The meeting was led by France de Baillenx, FIM environmental director, and Jean-Camille Uring, FIM vice president in charge of sustainable development and member of the Fives Executive Board. Alongside other industrialists, Mr. Uring presented Fives’ initiatives aimed at minimizing the environmental footprint of both the Group and its clients, industrial groups from all sectors. A particular focus was placed on Engineered Sustainability®, a program aimed at reinforcing environmental performance of products developed by Fives.

At Fives, environmental performance is a real motor for innovation;

  • 30% of R&D expenditure goes toward projects in the field. 
  • Environmental performance accounts for 50% of new patents.
