Climate Neutrality at TEEKANNE
Protecting the climate plays an important role for Teekanne. We attach great importance to making our corporate processes as efficient as possible and reducing emissions. Our goal is to keep the ecological footprint created by our business activities as small as possible.
We operate our production sites in Düsseldorf, Salzburg, Krakow, Radebeul and Eggstätt in a climate-neutral manner. This means that our activities do not increase the amount of climate-damaging greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In this context, it is important to transparently present the limits of our actions.
Climate-neutral production sites* means that 100% of our electricity, and thus around 50% of all the energy we purchase, comes from renewable sources; we offset the remaining emissions through certificates from recognized environmental protection projects. In addition, we currently determine emissions that are not under our direct influence.
*We thus refer to direct and indirect CO2 emissions at our production sites that fall under our influence according to Scope 1 & 2 of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG). Emissions not under our influence are assigned to Scope 3 according to the GHG; we are striving for further improvements here.
We measure our emissions based on the internationally recognized standard of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol
- Scope 1 includes all emissions caused directly by our company. These are, for example, emissions from our vehicle fleet and the combustion of gas in power plants and gas boilers.
- Scope 2 covers all indirectly caused emissions. These are, for example, emissions caused by electricity generation at electricity suppliers.
- Scope 3 covers all upstream & downstream emissions of our company or the product. These are e.g. logistics processes, business trips, waste disposal and much more.
Wir betrachten es als unsere unternehmerische Pflicht, Verantwortung für unsere Umwelt zu übernehmen und arbeiten daran, unsere Geschäftstätigkeit umweltschonend und energieeffizient zu gestalten. Diesen Gedanken haben wir in unserer Umwelt- und Energiepolitik festgehalten.
