CLIMATE NEUTRAL 2030. An ambitious goal

Social responsibility has always been an integral part of our corporate strategy. The dividends we generate support a wide range of projects in scientific research and social programs. Today, taking responsibility has taken on new meanings. Progressive climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. We know we have to do our part to stop climate change and have set ourselves an ambitious goal. Our pledge: We will become climate neutral across our prodcution by 2030.

CONSUMER TECH. Enabling the digital future

Our world is more connected than ever before. All-new devices like foldable phones are finding their way into everyday life, while augmented reality (AR) is getting closer to mainstream consumer use. Specialty glass from SCHOTT is often a core element of unprecedented device designs: As an ultra-flexible cover glass for foldable smartphones (Xensation® Flex) or as a strong cover glass for smartphone displays with outstanding set drop performance (Xensation® α), a substrate for 5G antenna technology, or as a high-index glass wafer for Augmented Reality (SCHOTT RealView®) –  our cutting-edge products are not always visible, but always there.

ZERODUR® for the ELT

ZERODUR® mirror substrates for the ELT

For astronomers, broadening horizons means reaching for the stars. The European Southern Observatory (ESO) helps to make this happen. Currently ESO is working on the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), the world´s most powerful telescope. SCHOTT is participating in this exciting project by manufacturing the substrate material for four out of the ELT’s five mirrors. Due to its unique properties, ZERODUR® glass-ceramic enables extreme shape accuracy and ensures sharp images from space. The glass experts have produced more than half of the ZERODUR® mirror blanks for the segmented 39-meter primary mirror. The ELT is scheduled to see its first light in 2027.
