Climate protection and resource scarcity are key challenges facing society in the 21st century. For us, taking responsibility is an integral part of our culture. Backed by our certified environmental management system, we work to minimize our emissions and waste while also utilizing resources such as energy, water and raw materials as efficiently as possible.
In 2009 we launched EDISON, a comprehensive program to mitigate our company's impact on the climate. Through the approximately 270 EDISON projects initiated since 2012, we are working to achieve annual CO2 savings of around 94,000 metric tons in the medium term. Worldwide, 37 of our sites account for 80% of our greenhouse gas emissions, which is why we are focusing our efforts on these facilities.
