REDUCING OPERATIONAL CARBON FOOTPRINT

Our vehicle fleet of 18,000 cars accounts for ca. 75 % of our emissions from our own operations. The key to reaching carbon neutrality is our program for transitioning to a low emission vehicle fleet.

Additionally, we are reducing our electricity consumption in our ca. 1000 facilities. Our target is to increase the share of green electricity globally to 100% by 2030.
