Carbon Disclosure Project

Carbon Disclosure Project

As a manufacturing enterprise that uses large amounts of energy to produce its products, especially for the manufacture of glass containers, our responsibility toward the environment has for many years centered on efficient energy consumption and the avoidance of emissions, particularly CO2e emissions. Consequently, since the financial year 2008, we have set a CO2e emissions target, which is verified through participation in one of the world’s largest environmental initiatives, the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). We also publish the target and target attainment.

Our Target

Our key environmental strategy target is to reduce the ratio of Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions to revenues. This means that our revenues are to grow faster in the future than the unavoidable Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions produced in revenue generation, so that we achieve a significant improvement by 2023. We met our target once again in the financial year 2019: The ratio of CO2e emissions to revenues fell by 2.0% between 2018 and 2019. We thus achieved a further percentage improvement. This positive trend is also plain to see from the multi-year analysis.

Alongside our own target, we have also launched further improvements within the context of CDP. For instance, we have improved the CDP verification criterion. Our activities and data were checked by the TÜV inspectorate and certified to ISO 14064-3.

The overall aim is for investors and customers to be able to assess, based on wide-ranging data and indices, whether a company gives sufficient consideration to climate change issues in its decisions and structures.
