As a company that is part of a globally active group of companies, we stand by our social responsibility and want to protect the environment and effectively counter climate change by voluntarily reducing emissions and offsetting unavoidable emissions.
Our current contribution to this goal is – in addition to the continuous reduction of our CO2 emissions – a neutralisation of our C02 footprint, i.e. the amount of greenhouse gases (measured in CO2 equivalents) that are generated directly and indirectly by our company. This takes into account the emissions generated by raw materials, production, transport and trade, use, recycling and disposal.
The result can be used to evaluate and compare influences on the climate. Necessary reduction potentials can be identified, measures developed and their effectiveness evaluated.
