SKZ becomes climate protection company

SKZ will become a member of the Klimaschutz-Unternehmen e.V. (KSU) association after a thorough professional review of its climate strategy. This means that SKZ will become part of a network of companies that are actively committed to climate protection and energy efficiency as well as propagating the sensible use of resources.

SKZ thus becomes part of the nationwide pioneer initiative for corporate climate protection

In addition to the current climate protection activities, the climate strategy of the SKZ was also subjected to an expert review. This recently concluded with a recommendation for SKZ to join KSU. This means that SKZ will be joining the pioneering initiative of companies working together to find forward-looking solutions to the climate crisis. 

The ambitious but clearly formulated goal of climate neutrality for the SKZ by 2025 results in some challenges in the context of climate management. The basic structure of the strategy here is to record greenhouse gas emissions and to avoid, reduce or at least compensate for them via optimizations. This results in transformations in the previous business models, which occupy all parts of the industry with the buzzwords resource efficiency and digitalization. In addition to the SKZ's internal activities, the focus is equally on knowledge transfer to the plastics industry in order to pave the way for solutions to the climate crisis there as well.

"We are delighted that our work in the field to date has been honored by SKZ's inclusion as a climate protection company. For SKZ, the inclusion is an important step towards climate neutrality. Of course, we will continue to work intensively on the topic of climate protection and plastics in order to leave a livable world for future generations," explains Prof. Dr. Martin Bastian, Institute Director at SKZ. "Likewise, the professional exchange with member companies on organizational and technical measures will yield new perspectives that will help us all move forward in climate protection," adds Julius Ort, climate manager at SKZ.
