Environmental and climate protection

Read page


We harness the opportunities provided by digitalisation to cut raw material and energy consumption. By 2020 we aim to have reduced our direct and indirect CO2 emissions by 11 % compared with 2015.

Target attainment


Energy & CO2 reduction

We will reduce our energy consumption per data volume by 40 % by 2020 compared with 2015 and annually purchase from green electricity sources 100 % of the energy we procure and control ourselves.

Conservation of resources

In the years leading up to 2020 we will annually implement at least one relevant measure for protecting resources in our structures and processes.
