As part of our sustainable resource management, we are continuously working to optimize the use of resources in our business activities and in our value chain. Our environmental work is an important tool in this context.
Our goal for 2030: Protect the environment and live sustainability
Germany is currently the largest emitter of greenhouse gases within the EU, generating 739 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents across all sectors in 2020 (BMU, 2021). The transition to climate neutrality requires extensive, targeted investments that go beyond necessary efficiency measures.
At Hemstedt, we see the circular economy as an important part of the solution to the resource problem, as it combines economic and ecological opportunities. In a sustainable circular economy, materials should be used in such a way that the longest possible period of use is given. In this context, the reduced consumption of resources has a positive effect on the environment in that less or no waste is produced.
For the economic transformation of all sectors, the field of energy is elementary and a priority, since many industrial conversion processes depend on a supply of renewable electricity for direct 'electrification' and indirect 'power-to-X' use to enable a rapid switch to new technologies.
Hemstedt demonstrably makes a not inconsiderable contribution to this by conserving resources and saving greenhouse gases.
