Minimizing our carbon footprint

We have a clear path towards reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. Electricity is our main source of carbon emissions so we put a plan in place to switch to non fossil-fuel sources for our sites.

Our approach

Energy supply and climate change are global challenges, both with a double materiality impact on and from our company. We act to minimize our impact across the whole value chain, starting with our own operations. Energy decarbonization is one aspect that drives immediate results. This supports the energy transition to a world aligned with the Paris Agreement goal and reinforces business resilience.

We are convinced that if we are responsible in the way we produce goods and offer services to customers, we will not only have a significant competitive advantage but we will also have employees who are even more committed to our overall effort.

We have set ourselves ambitious targets: reduce our own CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030 and become carbon-neutral by 2050.

Extending the life of renewable energy assets

Water represents one of the largest sources of renewable energy on our planet. For over 2’000 years, water has been harnessed to power machines, and more recently to generate electricity. Today, using the latest engineering techniques, we are able to achieve new levels of efficiency and reliability for hydropower stations, ensuring the future of this sustainable form of energy production. Sulzer helps hydropower stations to maximize output and extend their operational life by decades, thereby accelerating the world’s transition to renewable energy.
