Reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change

Reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change

  • Overview

    Summary

    We plan to implement different activities to reduce our carbon footprint, among them:
    Reduce operational emissions, with key areas for reduction being HVAC, certain equipment (such as air compressors), lighting and specific industrial processes.
    Reduce emissions related to distribution and transportation by collaborating with transport carriers to reduce carbon emissions from transportation purchased.
    Calculate the CO2 impact of all the Group’s new large customer projects.
    Avoid emissions through the Group’s maintenance, retrofit & end-of-life services.

    Commitment Target(s)
    • 2017 – Reduce operational emissions by 10% from 2015 to 2017, with key areas for reduction being HVAC, certain equipment (such as air compressors), lighting and specific industrial processes

    • 2017 – Reduce emissions related to distribution and transportation by 10% from 2015 to 2017
