In cooperation with CO2OP, Uhlmann & Zacher (U&Z) set up an individual CO2 balance for the year 2019. In addition to direct emissions, which are generated by incineration in own plants, indirect emissions from electricity, steam, cold and heat as well as other indirect emissions from for example business flights by employees are considered in the calculation.
U&Z uses three different measures to neutralize its own CO2e footprint. First of all the entire team strives for in-house savings by consistent energy management measures. When it comes to sourcing materials, the company prefers products and services with a low footprint. To neutralize the remaining unavoidable emissions, U&Z supports an international project. Exhausted gases are extracted from landfills and used sustainably to generate further energy. This makes it possible to save more than 30,000t of CO2 annually.
In the future U&Z will continue to show ecological awareness and pursue climate policy goals.
