Sustainability strategy makes progress: DEUTZ approves engines for renewable fuels

  • Engines that meet the EU Stage V emissions standard approved for renewable fuels
  • Good sustainability rating from ISS validates current activities

Cologne, August 31, 2021 With immediate effect, DEUTZ is approving its entire TCD engine portfolio for use with paraffinic diesel fuels. This means that alternative fuels can now also be used to run DEUTZ engines that meet the EU Stage V emissions standard. At the same time, DEUTZ is approving the majority of its latest-generation engines, particularly in the sub-4 liter and above-8 liter range, for biodiesel blends up to B30. The use of these alternative fuels significantly reduces the carbon footprint of DEUTZ’s combustion engines and raises the prospect of running engines on a carbon-neutral basis in the future.

“The fuel approvals show once again that we are pioneers of carbon-neutral drive systems for off-highway applications. This represents another big step forward for us in our Taking Responsibility sustainability strategy,” says Dr. Frank Hiller, Chairman of the Board of Management of DEUTZ AG.

As well as fulfilling its environmental responsibilities, DEUTZ is doing more and more to further the social aspects of its sustainability work. This is reflected in the ESG (Environmental-Social-Governance) corporate rating that DEUTZ recently received for the first time from leading rating agency ISS (Institutional Shareholder Services). DEUTZ was awarded a good C+ rating and Prime status, which puts it among the top 20 percent of its sector peers.
