Voith to be carbon neutral worldwide from 2022 onwards
December 11, 2019
From 2022 onwards, none of the Voith locations around the world will leave a carbon footprint going forward. With a view to implementing carbon neutrality quickly, Voith is going to switch to purchasing carbon-neutral electricity in the near future as well as offsetting unavoidable carbon emissions with compensation measures.
The company will gradually increase the share of renewable energies, both in its own generation and in its purchasing. Furthermore, Voith is going to invest Euro 5 million each year in energy efficiency, including its locations' own generation.
Energy efficiency is a key lever in achieving carbon neutrality. In this respect, Voith is building on consistent environmental management. The Voith internal Ecological Business Management is making a contribution to improving energy and resource efficiency at all locations. Over the coming years, Voith intends to make targeted investments totaling Euro 50 million into improving the energy efficiency of its own plant and buildings over the long term.
