Our production sites worldwide are a major
lever in reducing our energy-related emissions. To help us drive this, our global
“Manufacturing Excellence” initiative develops site-specific sustainability
concepts to continuously reduce our impact on the environment. Alongside targeted
measures to increase energy efficiency, these also include reducing greenhouse
gas emissions, cutting waste, and minimizing water consumption.
Energy consumption at our plants depends on a variety of operating conditions, such as exterior ambient temperature, or the required hot water temperature for production. “Manufacturing Excellence” helps us systematically identify energy reduction potentials worldwide and progressively implement site-specific energy saving measures.
