Climate protection

We take responsibility for emissions that arise directly or indirectly from our business activities along the value chain. We’re continuously developing new measures to optimize our operating processes and thus reduce our carbon footprint. In doing so, we are guided by the goals formulated in the Paris Climate Agreement to limit global warming.

We have set ourselves clear climate targets:

  • We aimed to increase our annual sourcing of electricity from renewable energies to 100 % in the next few years - and reached this goal at the beginning of 2024.
  • We aim to reduce our absolute Scope 1 and 2 emissions (direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions) by 58.8 per cent by the 2032/33 financial year, starting from the base year 2018/19.
  • We commit to reduce the absolute Scope 3 emissions of category 4 (upstream transport and distribution) and categories 1 and 11 (purchased goods and services and use of products sold) of our own brands by 32.5 per cent by financial year 2032/33, starting from the base year 2021/22.
