GHG Protocol

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol is an international standard for the accounting of greenhouse gas emissions. Three different “scopes” are considered: Scope 1 refers to direct emissions, Scope 2 to indirect emissions from externally generated energy and Scope 3 includes all emissions from the upstream and downstream value chain.

“You can’t manage what you can’t measure” To achieve our goal of climate neutrality by 2045, we need reliable data. We measure our Scope 1 & 2 emissions and calculate the CO2 footprints of our products as a data basis for the Scope 3 calculation. As a result, we can make the emissions comparable, continuously improve them and thus identify further CO2 savings potential.
