Operational efficiency

We strive for CO2 neutrality and a sustainable water footprint, and we follow the zero-waste approach.

Our ambition is to achieve climate neutrality by 2040, and we have set a target for 2030 that is compatible with 1.5 °C. Currently, our reduction target of -52% CO2eq by 2030 in Scopes 1, 2 and 3 is under review with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Our climate targets are flanked by continuous efficiency improvements and the increasing use of renewable energy. Based on the WWF Water Stewardship project, we will reduce water risks and define concrete water targets by 2030. By 2025, we will recycle 100 % of our production waste materially or energetically. In doing so, we maximise material recycling.

All locations of the WEPA Group are certified according to ISO 14001 and ISO 50001. This underpins our commitment to environmental issues in general and our sensitive handling of energy resources.

Actively combating climate change

Our targets and ambitions

SBTi 1.5°C target*

Reduction of CO2 emissions by 2030:

-52,5 % CO2eq emissions/t in Scopes 1 & 2**

-52,5 % CO2eq emissions/t in Scope 3**

Target achievement is supported by:

+10 % energy efficiency

*Our target was still under review by the SBTi at the time of the editorial deadline for this report.
