Climate neutrality by 2050
“We’ve come a good step closer to our goal of operating climate-neutrally by 2050: Between 2018 and 2020, we managed to reduce our energy-related CO2 emissions by 23%,” explains Dr. Norman Goldberg. Since the end of 2020, all tesa offices and production locations worldwide receive 100% of their electricity from renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind energy or hydropower. Moreover, in 2020 we joined the initiative ‘Business Ambition for 1.5° C’,” says the Tesa CEO. With it, the multinational company commits to align its business activities with limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5° C and implementing suitable measures for this purpose. Only approx. 400 leading corporations worldwide have committed to this agreement.
