"ecoMetals" and "Blue Competence" focus on energy and resource efficiency at the GMTN trade fairs
Through these two campaigns, machinery and plant producers are showing that they are aware of their responsibility for society and the environment as regards energy and resource efficiency. VDMA and Messe Düsseldorf are assisting GMTN exhibitors with the presentation of their sustainable products and production processes. VDMA members who are partners in the VDMA "Blue Competence" campaign can take part free of charge in the "ecoMetals" initiative of Messe Düsseldorf.
Blue Competence is the VDMA sustainability initiative. Blue Competence defines specific sustainability criteria and standards that any company joining the initiative must comply with. Since the initiative was launched in 2011, almost 400 companies have registered with Blue Competence.

The "ecoMetals" initiative launched by Messe Düsseldorf on the occasion of GMTN 2011 supports exhibitors at GMTN 2015 who are making a contribution to environmental protection. This may include products manufactured by environmentally compatible processes, resource-efficient processes, sustainable growth and technical solutions in harmony with nature. During GMTN 2011, 28 well-known international exhibitors took part in the initiative.
