Carbon Footprinting: Internal know-how and resource development since 2022 

Since 2022, we have begun to build up internal resources and capabilities in this area in a targeted manner in order to precisely record and analyze our emissions. This enables us to set specific targets for reducing our emissions and to continuously monitor our progress towards these targets. 

Lohmann is able to quantify the CO2 impact of the company and some of its products on the environment along the value chain. 

This covers two main areas: 

  • Product Carbon Footprint (PCFctg) 

The Product Carbon Footprint (PCFctg) describes the emissions caused by a unit of a product (or service) within its system boundaries from the "cradle to the factory gate". This method enables us to record and analyze the specific emissions of individual products.  

  • Company-wide Carbon Footprint (CCF) 

The Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) is a balance sheet of the emissions of a company and its supply chain over a certain period of time, usually one year. This assessment enables us to create a comprehensive picture of the overall emissions of our company and the supply chains involved. 

News from the sustainability department 

Within the next year, the Lohmann Group anticipates seeing the first significant results of our defossilization journey, largely due to our strategic shift towards renewable energy initiated in 2023. This transition is expected to substantially impact the calculation of our corporate carbon footprint, marking a key milestone in our ongoing sustainability efforts. 

As part of our broader defossilization roadmap, each country and division within the Group is tasked with reducing their environmental metrics. The Sustainability department will play a crucial role in supporting these regions, facilitating the achievement of Lohmann’s sustainability goals and contributing to a continuous reduction in the environmental impact of our business activities.
