The first steps have been taken: our second sustainability report and first carbon footprint are ready. Full of expectation, we are continuing our journey this year.
Last year, we calculated our corporate carbon footprint (CCF) for 2020 in cooperation with DFGE – Institute for Energy, Ecology and Economy.

The CCF reflects all company-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in CO2 equivalents and complies with the standards of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protokol), a globally recognised instrument for reporting greenhouse gas emissions.

The holistic approach thus covers Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions. Scope 1 comprises direct emissions from owned or controlled sources. Our Scope 2 emissions result from our purchased energy. Scope 3 comprises emissions from activities that are not controlled by us, but that occur in our upstream and downstream value chain.
99% (553,880 tons of CO2 e) of our emissions are Scope 3 emissions, most of which occur in production, transport and installation of the solar plants. During the same period, our renewable energy parks saved 987,052 tons of CO2e.
