Climate protection commitment leads to annual savings of of 350 tons of CO2
On January 10, 2019, we reported here that Müller Packaging is committed to sustainable climate protection with conviction. In Switzerland, the CO2 Act is considered the centerpiece of climate policy. It formulates emission targets, also for the economy. In 2001, the Swiss government established the Energy Agency for Industry (EnAW) to implement these targets. Müller Packaging works with this agency on a voluntary basis. The individually defined targets are mandatory.
A look at the EnAW monitoring 2020 shows that Müller Packaging at the Münchenstein and Reiden sites, through the implementation of climate protection measures, saves
- 350 metric tons of CO2 per year and requires
- 190 MWh less electricity per year.
A comparison over several years shows that – in relation to the two sites in Münchenstein and Reiden – since 2013
- energy efficiency has improved by 4.1 percent.
- total energy consumption and CO2 emissions per building area have been reduced by around 20 percent.
Encouraging figures for an industrial company – and an incentive to remain committed to climate protection and energy efficiency.
