Environment protection in numbers

Only by systematically compiling the data on environment performance in numbers can we effectively identify what we must do to further reduce our carbon footprint. Improving environment protection is not always just about technical solutions, such as the use of energy-saving LED bulbs. Paper usage, for example, also depends on employee behaviour.

In some areas, such as water consumption or office heating, the weather also plays a part. In hot summers, there is an increased requirement for water to maintain grounds and outdoor facilities; harsh winters extend the period when heating is needed, thus increasing energy consumption.
