Sustainability: A Goal Clearly in Sight
On the Road to Carbon Neutrality, With a Focus on Energy, Waste, Materials, Water and Emissions
At Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, we want to do our part in preventing climate change, and we have set ambitious goals in this area. From 2020 to 2025, we will reduce our relative CO2 emissions – as calculated per million euros of revenue – by 30 percent. Until 2030, we will use exclusively electricity from renewable sources.
We know that we can only reach our climate goals if we proceed down this path quickly and systematically. That means we want to cut down on energy use quickly by continually optimizing our products and technologies, reducing waste and improving the energy efficiency of our buildings.
To us, sustainable operation means paying attention to our consumption of materials and energy and minimizing CO2 emissions in manufacturing. We have already electrified our energy supply significantly, and we increasingly obtain electricity from renewable sources.
Four Steps To Zero Emissions
We have defined our path to carbon neutrality and are pursuing a multi-step strategy involving reduction, electrification, green electricity and compensation. Cutting down on the use of materials and energy is a top priority when the goal is to protect the climate. The electrification of our energy supply, which is well underway in our facilities, is the foundation for our next major step toward zero emissions: the conversion to electricity from renewable sources. Learn more about how we are proceeding at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies and what methods we are using.
