Danfoss close to cutting its CO2 emissions in half
Over the course of ten years, Danfoss has managed to cut almost half of the company’s emissions of carbon dioxide at its factories in Nordborg and Gråsten. The company is therefore well-equipped to fulfil its part of the ProjectZero vision to make the region of Sønderborg CO2-neutral before 2029.
Since ProjectZero was established ten years ago, Danfoss has reduced their CO2 emissions from the facilities in Nordborg and Gråsten by 26,000 tonnes. Danfoss is thus one-step closer to its climate target for 2030; cutting the energy consumption per Danish turnover crown in half as well as cutting the CO2 emission in its utilised energy in half.
Flemming Lynge Nielsen, the Sustainability Manager at Danfoss, explains that the company has been a part of ProjectZero since its very beginning and that they will remain a part of the project:
– Up to and including 2020, we will have significant focus on reducing the amount of energy we use. We will do this by doing what we are specialised in doing, which is making more with increasingly less. From 2020, we will also direct our focus at reducing CO2 emissions originated from our energy consumption. Purchases of green energy could be one of the means to reach this goal. We wish to accomplish our part of the task by fulfilling the vision of ProjectZero.
