We aim to reduce our GHG emissions significantly and to become carbon neutral by 2050. In 2021, Jungbunzlauer committed to SBTi (Science Based Target initiative) in order to set ambitious and science-based targets. We will work on the validation of our targets for the next year. More details on our SBTi targets can be found on page 49.
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 perform a regular assessment of our scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissionsb. We calculate our CCF on an annual basis (since 2014).
Our 2021 CCF (mt CO2e/mt final product incl. by-products) was reduced by 34% compared to 2013 and by 28% compared to 2020.
Since 2021 we assess our PCFs yearly to monitor our emission reduction progress more closely.
Footprint calculations are performed in accordance with ISO standard 14040/44 and the GHG Protocol by our internal specialists and experts from Stiftung myclimate, an independent non-profit organisation with extensive experience in lifecycle assessments.
