For 5 years, PALFINGER has been reporting in the form of an Integrated Annual Report. This not only presents the economic performance of the reporting year, but also the ecological and social responsibility. A focus is placed on the four sustainability fields of PALFINGER: Responsible employer, Eco-efficiency in production, Sustainable products and Fair business.

For the first time, the Integrated Annual Report for the 2017 fiscal year is also available in digital form: https://i-report.palfinger.ag/en/index.php.
