Consumer Healthcare News

Beiersdorf has published its annual Sustainability Review, which highlights the efforts the firm has made to reduce its environmental impact during 2017.

In the last year, the company has been able to establish the necessary conditions to switch all of its production sites over to renewable energy sources in 2018, with the exception of Mexico and Nigeria.

“Beiersdorf has issued its sustainability review for 2017, highlighting its achievements in advancing climate protection over the last year.“

The amount of electricity Beiersdorf generates from renewable sources will rise from 45 percent to around 75 percent by the end of the year, meaning the company is on course to hit its target of 100 percent by 2020.

Beiersdorf is also on track to meet its goal of reducing energy-related greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent by 2025 compared to 2014, having already lowered its emissions per product manufactured by 27 percent.

Zhengrong Liu, executive board member for human resources and sustainability, said: "The worldwide switchover to renewable energies is a key lever in achieving our 2025 climate target. We also plan to develop measurable targets for our CO2 emissions from packaging, raw materials, business travel, product transport and finished-goods suppliers."
