REHAU Achieves Sustainability Goals
REHAU published its sustainability report for 2021, which shows REHAU achieved its targets for both circular economy and climate protection.
REHAU has regularly reported on its commitment to sustainability since 2011. This report is REHAU's seventh sustainability report.
"We are particularly pleased that we managed to take further decisive steps based on our sustainability strategy last year. Meeting targets makes us proud and spurs us on even more," says CEO of REHAU Industries Dr. Uwe H. Böhlke.
What was achieved
The goal of driving the circular economy and increasing the recycling rate to more than 15 percent by 2025, compared to the 2016 fiscal year, has already been achieved. The target to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 percent compared to 2018 was also met in 2021.
REHAU also developed a "Circular Scorecard," which comprises 12 categories in the areas of energy, product, production and society. With the Circular Scorecard, existing products can be reviewed and further developed in terms of sustainability. This helps REHAU evaluate progress in this field.
"REHAU Automotive has decided not only to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 as planned, but to be 100 percent CO2 neutral by then," says CEO REHAU Automotive Dr. Markus Distelhoff.
More projects are also started at product and company levels to evaluate upstream and downstream emissions.
