As a first step and as information for our stakeholders, we have been calculating our carbon footprint since 2019 in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14067 in conjunction with the GHG Protocol (incl. the delimitation areas Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3).
In principle, knowledge of the carbon footprint can be used in communication along the supply chain – with product manufacturers, trading companies and consumers – in order to
- clarify the climate relevance of everyday products and services and derive from this the joint responsibility of all participants for climate protection,
- to work together with corporate partners to make parts of the value chain less emission-intensive,
- to inform consumers about alternative actions in the purchase and use of products and thus to distinguish themselves positively from competitors, and
- to illustrate the company’s social responsibility for climate protection using a specific product as an example.
