Key figures on environmental protection

In the production units, we are working on making processes more efficient and more sustainable. New targets were defined in 2019 for operational environmental protection. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions at our locations and increasing the waste recycling rate, these include reducing energy use and increasing energy efficiency, as well as reducing water consumption and waste generation.
