ACTEGA as part of the ALTANA group is consistently pursuing a demanding sustainability course. Thus, by 2025, we will reduce our CO2 impact from production and energy procurement to zero worldwide. Already in March 2020, the power supply at all ALTANA locations was converted to renewable energies. ALTANA will compensate for the unavoidable use of natural gas until 2025 by financing equivalent climate protection projects in the regions where CO2 emissions are generated. The same applies to offsetting CO2 emissions arising from necessary business trips, company cars, and the transport of goods. The specialty chemicals group will thus achieve climate neutrality in its direct sphere of influence by 2025.
Here, you can find more information and learn about the measures we take on our path to achieve climate neutrality.
In order to further reduce its CO2 emissions, ALTANA is relying on greater energy efficiency as well as heat and electricity generation at its worldwide sites. In the long term, renewable energies should also replace natural gas as a source of energy. Aside from the measures at its own sites, ALTANA is setting up a program in close cooperation with its suppliers to consistently further improve the CO2 balance of purchased raw materials, too. This makes us one of the companies that consider the CO2 emissions of their entire value chain.
ALTANA to be CO2 neutral by 2025
The graph shows the neutralization of CO2 emissions from production and energy consumption (Scope 1 + 2). In addition, ALTANA will offset the CO2 emissions caused by necessary business trips, company cars, and the transportation of goods by 2025 (Scope 3). *1,000 tons.
WE WANT TO LEAVE FOOTPRINTS ON INNOVATIONS, NOT ON EMISSIONS.
