United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of seventeen interlinked objectives designed to serve as a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future."[1][2][3] The short titles of the 17 SDGs are: No poverty (SDG 1), Zero hunger (SDG 2), Good health and well-being (SDG 3), Quality education (SDG 4), Gender equality (SDG 5), Clean water and sanitation (SDG 6), Affordable and clean energy (SDG 7), Decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), Industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9), Reduced inequalities (SDG 10), Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11), Responsible consumption and production (SDG 12), Climate action (SDG 13), Life below water (SDG 14), Life on land (SDG 15), Peace, justice, and strong institutions (SDG 16), and Partnerships for the goals (SDG 17).

Hammer-IMS takes these as important guidelines for its activities. The way Hammer-IMS deals with these goals is explained below.

What does Hammer-IMS stand for?

Hammer-IMS stands for sustainable, non-harmful production-quality-control machinery. Our solutions do not emit any harmful radiation (no Xray or nuclear radiation!), which is commonly the case for classic technologies competing with Hammer-IMS’s technologies. Furthermore, Hammer-IMS’s only focus is on product quality control, and more specifically for inline material production markets (e.g. textiles and nonwovens, which are the relevant markets for Hammer-IMS at the Techtextil 2024 event). This means Hammer-IMS can directly achieve less material scrap or material waste in its customers’ production plants. Furthermore, by giving our customers the tools to create higher-quality products, the product lifecycles of these textiles and nonwovens products are significantly increased, giving again rise to less material waste. 

We hereby address the SDGs individually:

SDGs in line with Hammer-IMS

SDG3 and SDG8

Thanks to the sustainable nature of our solutions (no Xray or nuclear radiation), operators and technicians are kept away from any harmful radiation. This means that their job quality and life expectancy will be optimized.


By providing industrial measurement solutions for process and quality control, Hammer-IMS enables manufacturers to optimize their production processes, while minimizing waste, total cost of ownership, and energy consumption. This in turn, contributes to the broader goal of achieving affordable and clean energy by promoting lean, energy-efficient practices within industrial operations.


We only work with European high-quality suppliers, our domestic market. Working with high-quality suppliers means we are positioning our products as the best in class, enabling long-term cooperations with our suppliers and customers.


We upgrade many industries and industries to for sustainability. Many of our projects are retrofits of existing older equipment, turning it into new and competitive infrastructure. We carry out internal R&D, pushing the targets to increase the amount of R&D workers worldwide as part of the SDG 9.


Hammer-IMS contributes in reducing the amount of nuclear waste by providing an alternative to nuclear thickness and basis-weight gauges. We help our customers to control their material wastes by providing them gauges to control their products’ quality.

SDG 15

By reducing production scrap and nuclear waste, Hammer-IMS contributes to reducing the impacts of industrial production on the environment.
