Environmental technology from Austria on global success path

27. May 2015

Around 75% of revenue in the Austrian environmental technology sector is generated by exports and several Austrian companies are global market leaders.

Austria, with its extremely high innovative potential, is one of the leading countries in environmental technology. Thanks to the very successful “green technology”, Austrian companies enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide. Both companies and research organisations can boast a high level of specialised know-how in sustainable construction, waste management, innovative energy solutions and resource efficiency.

Austrian companies in the environmental technology sector generate annual revenue of more than EUR 8bn (not including service providers), a figure which has increased more than fivefold since 1993. Exports account for 75% of revenue.

Competent know-how with a holistic approach is offered in a great variety of areas in environmental technology: water and wastewater, renewable energy technology, recycling/material flow/waste management, resource efficiency, air monitoring or innovative construction technology. The companies are proud of their high quality services and their reputation as partners of international standing.
