Sustainability, a vision for a responsible future

At MCB, we do things the MCB way: Together, Constantly improving, Reliable, and Smart. We have been doing this for 80 years. But always striving to be better. We are always evolving. Also when it comes to sustainability. Because let's face it, everyone must take responsibility. And we do that together; working with colleagues, partners, and suppliers, we look for solutions to make our business a little more sustainable every day. We are a large organization and cannot do without our trucks, but we make a significant impact by consistently making smarter choices. And that's what makes us unique; that's typical MCB.

Sustainability vision MCB

Step by step, we are making a positive difference. We celebrate the successes we have already achieved and roll up our sleeves for the improvements to come. Sustainability is on our agenda every day, and we are achieving more and more sustainable results. And we are proud of that!
