Corporate environmental protection
LEONI is well aware of its ecological responsibilities and regards environmental protection as a key corporate objective. Our environmental management system is geared to keeping the impact of all of our processes on ecosystems to the absolute minimum. We make every effort to reduce energy consumption and our associated CO2 emissions as our contribution to climate protection, and to reduce our water consumption and volumes of waste we generate, with the aim of achieving optimum resource and material efficiency.
LEONI has defined water and energy consumption, waste generation and CO2 equivalent (CO2e) as key indicators for environmental protection. In 2018, we defined our first Group-wide targets for these indicators as part of our work on the 2030 CSR Strategy. We aim to achieve the following targets by 2030 (baseline year is 2016 in each case):
- Reduction of CO2 equivalents by 20 per cent per EUR 1 million of revenue.
- Reduction of energy consumption by 15 per cent per EUR 1 million of revenue.
- Reduction in fresh water use by 10 per cent per EUR 1 million of revenue
We also intend to have all our production facilities certified to the ISO 14001 environmental standard by 2030. In order to achieve these targets, plants are free to define and complete one or more projects, so as to accommodate the differing strategies and infrastructural circumstances applicable to the various production facilities within the two divisions. We started measuring target achievement levels internally in 2018.
