“The climate crisis is the main challenge we face in the 21st century. As a company, we are obliged to drastically reduce our CO2 emissions so that global warming does not escalate further.”

Climate protection: a question of survival

The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has increased dramatically since industrialization begun over 150 years ago. The consequence of this is a rise in temperatures on earth, which has numerous implications for people and for the environment. It is caused mainly by burning fossil raw materials such as coal, gas and crude oil. If humanity is unable to massively reduce its emissions, temperatures will rise, causing grave and irreversible damage to life on planet Earth. Climate protection has essentially become a question of survival for humanity and for our planet.

Our goal

We want to be climate neutral by 2030.

Our targets


Increase the share of renewable electricity to 70 percent by 2025 and 90 percent by 2030.


Reduction in specific emissions (Scope 1 & 2) by 38 percent by 2025 and 53 percent by 2030.


Improve energy efficiency by 10 percent by 2025 and 20 percent by 2030.

Our performance


Renewable electricity accounted for 26 percent in 2020.


24 percent reduction in our specific emissions since 2018.


Energy efficiency improved by 18 percent since 2018.
