Winterthur, November 2022 – The Kistler Group presents its global climate strategy with facts and figures on its commitment to greater sustainability in its first sustainability report. A reduction of 880 tons of CO2 has already been achieved through a complete switch to green electricity at the six largest German sites. Kistler also provides information on planned projects and measures. For example, with the “Cut the Carbon” initiative, the company aims to cut its CO2 emissions worldwide by half by 2025. Kistler is also striving for CO2 neutrality for the entire Group in Scope 1 and 2 of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol by 2030.
Rolf Sonderegger, CEO of the Kistler Group, and Franziska Kunz, Sustainability & CSR Manager and Site Manager in Meerane, present their ambitious plans in the Kistler Group's current Sustainability Report for 2021/2022. Broken down into the areas of Environment, Social, and Governance, the report provides information on the company's commitment and progress to date. It also shows the way towards the planned global CO2 neutrality in 2030. “Our current sustainability report proves that sustainability is measurable. We are not just showing that we are aware of our responsibility but that we are also actively working towards coherent and reliable targets,” explains Rolf Sonderegger.
For example, as part of the “Cut the Carbon” project, the six largest German production sites are to be CO2 neutral by 2025 in categories 1 and 2 in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. Kistler intends to achieve this goal primarily by optimizing heat and energy use, by purchasing green electricity, and by expanding e-mobility within the company.
