Focus on Sustainable Production: ACTEGA DS GmbH Bremen Puts Photovoltaic System into Operation

Bremen, 26th January, 2024 - ACTEGA DS GmbH in Bremen recently commissioned a new photovoltaic system installed on the roof of its new 7,600 m² building. The system has a nominal output of just under 1,000 kWp and is expected to generate more than 850,000 kWh of electricity per year. This investment is further proof of the company’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and environmental protection.

Wilfried Lassek, Managing Director of ACTEGA DS GmbH in Bremen, emphasizes the importance of this step: “By investing in the photovoltaic system, we are underpinning our commitment to manufacturing sustainable, resource-conserving products. The system will cover part of our electricity requirements and thus help to further minimize our environmental impact.

Dennis Siepmann, Head of Sustainability at ACTEGA, adds: “ACTEGA develops sustainable solutions for various markets. Generating electricity for our production is an important step in reducing our own emissions. The photovoltaic system at our site in Bremen is a prime example of how companies can take responsibility for the environment.

The photovoltaic system covers the entire permitted part of ACTEGA’s new building in Bremen and will help to further reduce the company’s CO2 footprint. The energy generated is used directly in the production process to ensure even more environmentally friendly production.

In line with the motto “We want to make our mark through innovation, not through emissions”, ACTEGA, as part of the ALTANA Group, is moving a step closer to its overarching goal of “climate neutrality by 2025”.
