CO2 emissions reporting is the foundation for active climate protection. Therefore, from 2020 onwards, we have had our carbon footprint determined according to Scope 1 and 2* at our locations in Germany.
For 2022 we expect a significant reduction in our carbon footprint because, from this year onwards, we are supplying the German bilstein group sites (Ennepetal, Wuppertal, Gelsenkirchen and Durmersheim) with electricity exclusively from renewable sources. This is another important step on our way to making ourselves even more sustainable as a company.
‘Green Sites’ Programme
We launched the ‘Green Sites’ programme to integrate the international bilstein group locations. It pursues the goal of recording and reducing emissions in Scope 1 and Scope 2* at all main locations as well as downstream at all sales offices.
By the end of 2025, all worldwide bilstein group logistics and production sites are to be integrated into the energy management system. From 2030, this will apply to all bilstein group sites and companies.
*Scope 1: includes the direct release of climate-damaging gases within the company and its production processes.
Scope 2: includes the indirect release of climate-damaging gases by energy suppliers.
