climate actions

our roadmap to net zero

We are committed to a clear decarbonization roadmap and have created a corridor of different scenarios. Through collaborative efforts with our customers, we can leverage rapid decarbonization possibilities, fostering a joint approach. Our most conservative reduction goal already surpasses the targets outlined in the SBTi Net-Zero Standard.

Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions [1000t CO2e/a] reduction scenarios

three main priorities of action

  • energy saving initiatives

    Real-time monitoring to measure, control and optimize the consumption of heat, pressurized air, electricity and water.

  • efficient energy generation

    On-site installation of own renewable electric and heat energy generation facilities (PV plants, hybrid and multi-fuel burners, hydropower, etc.)

  • green energy supply

    Purchasing carbon-neutral/renewable electricity and striving for long-term partnerships with electricity suppliers (PPA)

mindful water management

We are continuously monitoring and optimizing water consumption. Our water stewardship strategy focuses on closing cycles through water recycling and reuse.

We aim to minimize our environmental impact through continuous water-saving measures and improving wastewater treatment.

  • Our cooling water is kept in separate water circuits to reduce freshwater withdrawal.
  • We use big data software to measure and optimize water withdrawal, consumption and discharge in real-time.
  • We implemented water-saving measures, such as drilling of own wells and setting lower cooling temperatures.
  • All production water is treated in our own or in municipal wastewater treatment plants.
