Success factors cleaning agents, green electricity and energy efficiency
“As a sustainability team, we are really happy about the result achieved and take it as a further motivation to intensify our efforts. One key learning to us is the fact that even ambitious objectives can be achieved if the company and all employees are committed to the goals. We are confident being able to contribute to the UN's 1.5-degree Celsius target in our sphere of influence”, says global Sustainability Manager Markus Hermann. "As a sustainability team, we want to show & give hope: reducing CO2 emissions works!"
CO2eq emissions* from solvents have now been reduced by 94 %. After great successes in reducing energy-related CO2 emissions in 2020 and 2021, a certain stagnation has occurred here. Therefore, it is important to focus more on these emissions again and to achieve a breakthrough especially in the area of Scope 1 (gas, diesel) through new ideas and pilot projects. The values are calculated according to Scope 1 and 2 of the "Greenhouse Gas Protocol", and include all direct, i.e. self-generated emissions, as well as indirect emissions from purchased energy, such as electricity, at all production and sales locations.
