Sustainable action has exceeded beyond purely ecological concerns. It not only encompasses the protection of our natural resources, but also includes social and corporate aspects.
As part of ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance), we look at sustainability from a holistic perspective and include social responsibility. This is reflected not only in social discourse but also in increasing client demand for sustainable solutions. With regards to our environmental responsibility, we are already taking care to reduce our emissions and switch to green alternatives in order to develop and implement sustainable solutions jointly with our clients.
Purchase of 100% green electricity worldwide since January 2023
For our distribution centers, we have been purchasing 100% green electricity since the beginning of 2023 wherever we do not produce electricity for our own use with the help of photovoltaic systems.
50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030
We are committed to reducing 50% greenhouse gas emissions from Scope 1 and Scope 2 by 2030 compared to the 2018 baseline. Similarly, we have set a target to reduce 50% of greenhouse gases from Scope 1, 2 and 3 per package by 2030.
Offsetting of unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions from 2030
From 2030 onwards, unavoidable emissions will be offset from a portfolio of voluntary climate protection projects that bind CO2 emissions from the atmosphere in the long term and thus effectively neutralize the emissions caused by us.
The joint consideration of economic, ecological and social aspects in our logistics processes is an absolute necessity for us. For this reason, 'sustainable logistics' is synonymous for us with an investment in the future.
Andreas Barth President Tech & Head of ESG
We use our own solar energy at many sites, procure 100% green electricity worldwide, and continuously develop the energy efficiency of our sites. Our buildings meet high standards and are certified. We also attach great importance to transparent reporting on environmental impacts.
