Our journey to climate neutrality

Climate change calls for fast, decisive action. That is why we set ourselves even more ambitious climate protection targets in 2021: By 2030, we want to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from our production sites and our energy purchases (Scope 1 and Scope 2) by 25% compared with 2018 – while growing production volumes. We aim to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. To achieve these targets, we have set up comprehensive carbon management and created effective structures for its implementation.
