At the end of 2019, the more than 200 major production and development locations were certified according to ISO 14001 (environmental management) and 104 locations were already certified according to ISO 50001 (energy management). The focus of environmental management is efficiency and thus the improvement of each type of consumption.
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.
