"As a globally operating company, Osram is fully aware of its responsibility towards sustainability. We have set ourselves the goal of being climate-neutral by 2030 and thus making an important contribution to society," said Ingo Bank, CFO of OSRAM Licht AG. Starting in the current fiscal year, Osram will consistently reduce its carbon dioxide emissions and thus contribute to achieving the Paris Climate Protection Agreement.
Climate protection and the reduction of climate-damaging emissions are global challenges. In order to consistently reduce its own CO₂ balance sheet, the company is increasing its focusing on energy efficiency both in its own production and at its administrative and development sites, effective this financial year, with the goal of becoming CO₂-neutral in 2030. In doing so, the company is playing its part in implementing the agreement of the Paris Climate Protection Convention of 2015 and limiting global warming to well below 2°C compared with pre-industrial levels. In concrete terms, the aim now is to save energy and increase energy efficiency in all areas of production and administration. The consistent use of renewable energies also plays a decisive role.
Osram also intends to make its upstream and downstream supply chain more energy efficient in order to achieve its ambitious goals. In this way, Osram customers save energy, reduce their own emissions and, in addition to contributing to climate protection, also have economic added value.
"In line with our vision of 'Light for a Better World,' our energy-efficient products and solutions provide us with a major lever to drive climate protection forward," Bank said.
