We aim to reduce our GHG emissions significantly and to become carbon neutral by 2050. As a first target Jungbunzlauer has made a commitment to reduce its CCF emission intensity (mt CO2e/mt final product incl. by-products) by 10% between 2017 and 2025 (from 2017 levels).
In order to keep track of our emissions and our efforts to reduce GHG emissions, and to determine, evaluate and communicate the carbon footprint of our products, we committed ourselves to performing a regular assessment of our scope 1 and 2 GHG emissionsb. We calculate our CCF on an annual basis (since 2013).
We reached a reduction of 8% in emission intensity between 2013 and 2020. However our CCF intensity rose by 15% between 2017 and 2020.
Since 2013 we assess our PCFs every three years, in order to monitor the emissions of our individual products more accurately. The latest PCF assessment was done for the reporting year 2020.
All our carbon footprint calculations are performed in accordance with ISO standard 14040/44, based on secondary data from ecoinvent V3.6 and externally verified by myclimate, an independent non-profit organisation with extensive expertise in lifecycle assessments.
