Reduction of CO2 emission by some 1’800 tons per year. Second phase with solar panels on roof of new building (2022) will add another 2’500 MWh of electricitiy and reduce CO2-emissions by another 2’200 tons.

Carbon neutrality by 2030.
There is only one planet, and we have to take good care of it. This is why Datwyler takes action and aims to be carbon neutral for its own activities (scope 1 and 2) at all its sites by 2030 based on the Science Based Targets concept. We already obtain close to 70'000 MWh or some 35% of our global electricity needs from renewable energy sources. This reduces our CO2 emissions by some 15’000 tonnes per year.
