GELITA has set itself the goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The focus here is on reducing CO2 emissions. The Group aims to halve its carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 compared with 2020. Investments in modern technical infrastructure, innovative production processes, an efficient energy supply and renewable energy are helping to achieve these targets. They include projects such as the construction of a solar park at the Chicago plant in the USA and biomass-based steam generation at the Mococa site in Brazil, both of which were successfully completed in 2021. GELITA has already significantly cut its CO2 emissions in relation to production volume over the past few years. Another focus of the company’s commitment to sustainability is on initiatives to use water, a vital resource, more sparingly and on continuous investment in wastewater treatment processes and facilities.
