LORENZ’ COMMITMENT TO REDUCE ITS CARBON FOOTPRINT
Between 2014 and 2019, Lorenz also reduced GHG emissions in logistics by 24%. For this, the company received the “Lean & Green 1st Star” award of the non-profit initiative GS1 Germany in March 2020. While transitioning to net zero by 2045, Lorenz will reduce its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 50% by 2030 compared to 2019.
Lorenz has committed for long to reduce its carbon footprint across all operations, notably by using renewable energies and systematically optimising production and distribution processes to save energy. Since the beginning of 2022 Lorenz obtains 100% electricity from renewable sources at all six production sites, the administrative sites in Neu-Isenburg, Sady and Klagenfurt and all factory stores. Photovoltaic installations are increasingly deployed such as in the Hankensbüttel production site, covering now around 9% of its energy needs. Furthermore, Lorenz has its own combined heat and power facilities at each of their factories in Neunburg and Kreba, and reuse most of the energy and heat generated from these systems. The factory in Neunburg, for instance, covers 17% of its power needs from its very own facilities. At the Neunburg
site, the company also operates its own biogas plant feed powered by production waste.
