In the framework of the ISTMA Sustainability Agenda, promoted by ISTMA Europe Presidency and managed by VDMA, a series of one-hour online sessions started in May 2023. 

Under the motto "Technology drives Sustainability" these events focus on practical examples of sustainability. They are intended to inspire the toolmaking industry and its customers in finding innovative solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of their value chains. 

The next session will take place on September 6, with the topic "Innovative cutting tool solutions for a sustainable production of dies and molds".
