We know that reaching climate-neutrality is an ambitious goal. In this goal, however, lies a great challenge. To reach our goal, we tread many different paths and try to continuously improve things withing our company. Besides the incremental expansion of our photovoltaic capacity and the electrification of our internal logistics, we also work on reducing consumable materials, e.g. paper or plastics. We have also implemented en energy management system according to DIN EN ISO 50001.
Since the beginning of 2022, we are part of the initiative “Klimaschutz Holzindustrie” (climate protecition initiative of the wood indutstry). We are among the first German glulam producers to join the initiative. As part of it, we had our carbon footprint calculated according to the internationally recognized GHG-Protocol. Based on our carbon footprint, further measures to reduce CO2-emissions can now be planned and implemented more precisely. From now on, all direct and indirect Co2-emissions (as well as other emissions that are usually converted into CO2-equivalents) that are emitted as a consequence of our company’s economic activities will be compensated by internationally recognized CO2-certificates originating from climate protection projects, such as a UN hydropower project in Myanmar and a forest protection project in Brazil.
As part of the initiative, we have committed ourselves to recalculate our carbon footprint at least once every to years as well as to continuously reduce all emissions in the long term. With our efforts, we hope to be able to contribute to the United Nation’s 1.5 °C gaol.
