100% renewable electricity in Jupiter Bach
Jupiter Bach is devoted to wind: 100% of our business is focused on the wind industry. We contribute to the transformation of global energy systems via our product portfolio.
At the same time, we are also committed to constantly improve our global sustainability footprint. As a part of our sustainability strategy we’re yearly calculating our carbon footprint (CO2 emissions).
Analyzing our 2018 and 2019 carbon footprint, it has become obvious that changing our electricity consumption to 100% renewable would be the most significant contribution to minimize our CO2 emissions.
“In Jupiter Bach we will do our part in fighting the climate change and I am very proud that all electricity used in Jupiter Bach from 1st of January 2020 will been certified renewable and primarily coming from wind” says Lone Stubberup, Global Director BMP & QHSE .
Global HSE Manager Enrique Parra Robledo is responsible for tracking and calculating Jupiter Bach’s carbon footprint. He explains that changing to 100% green electricity will reduce our global CO2 emission with 65– 70% (CO2 emissions for purchased electricity is zero).
The CO2 emission from electricity and thereby our total CO2 emission increased in 2019 due to increased activity. However, looking at our CO2 emission per tons consumed glass this index is fairly stable which means that our relative CO2 emission is stable comparing 2018 and 2019.
COO Lars Rytter says “when we initiated our strategy work on Sustainability in Jupiter Bach including signing up for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals implementing green electricity across all sites and offices in our Group was high on the agenda and therefore I’m happy to see the project team turning this task swiftly around and making us “Green” as of January 2020”
