Our manufacturing facility in Herne, Germany, maintained its carbon neutral energy status in 2020. The site commissioned an external consultancy to calculate the amount of GHG it generates and purchased 7,000 carbon certificates to offset its 2020 energy usage.
The purchase of these certificates continue our support for two renewable energy projects involving hydropower in Uganda and wind turbines in India.
For the seventh consecutive year, our Vernon manufacturing facility in France has offset the GHG emissions associated with its energy usage. The site partnered once again with local organization “Forest and Life”, supporting the planting of trees as part of their Togo program. The program not only helps to restore areas affected by deforestation, it also supports the local population through the provision of access to water, nutritional food programs and creation of local jobs.
