Climate protection targets: important for us and our customers

Responsibility for people and the environment is a tradition – for us and for the whole Brand Group

BRAND adopts specific targets for climate protection and energy saving

On the important issue of greenhouse gas emissions, we support the sectoral targets of the German Federal Climate Act and the underlying principles of the Paris Agreement, which is based on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

 

We focus on reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of our sole production site (Wertheim, Germany) annually. These numbers are measured on the base of ISO 14064-1 and the GHG Protocol Scope 1 and 2. For the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions, we use validated external data obtained from our energy suppliers or based on the Emission Reporting Regulation.

We focus on reducing energy consumption and increasing the use of renewable energies

As we are a growth-oriented company, emissions intensity (t CO2 per million EUR turnover) is our leading indicator. Our goal is to reduce the CO2 intensity of our operations at our production site by 70% from 2020 to 2030. For electrical energy, the goal is to continuously reduce the energy intensity (kWh per million EUR turnover) at our production site by 4% annually from 2020 to 2030.

 

We already save more than 1000 tonnes of CO 2 per year by using electricity from renewable sources.
