Stoelzle Glass Group’s decarbonisation targets have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
The Stoelzle Glass Group commits to:
- Reduce absolute 1 and 2 GHG emissions 50% by 2030 from a 2019 base year.
- Reduce absolute 3 GHG emissions 15% by 2030 from a 2019 base year.
Georg Feith, CEO of Stoelzle Glass Group, said: “We are proud to be one of 4,000 plus companies worldwide and one of a few companies within the European glass industry with an official SBTi climate protection target.
“Stoelzle Glass Group remains committed to continuous improvement and driving sustainable practices in all aspects of our operations.”
A key aspect of the company’s sustainability roadmap is driving decarbonisation by reducing the energy demand in glass production and increasing the use of renewable energy sources.
A couple of milestones have been reached so far, such as the implementation of a group-wide Process and Energy Data Management System, the installation of a Batch Preheater at the Austrian production plant and the progressing use of green energy.
Electrification of the production process is increasing. At the Austrian site, in autumn 2023, the first electric feeder will start operation.
The SBTi is a global body enabling businesses to set ambitious emissions reductions targets in line with the latest climate science.
It is focused on accelerating companies across the world to halve emissions before 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions before 2050.
