White paper go GREEN 2022
Heat records, forest fires, dried-up rivers and lakes – climate change caused by greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can no longer be ignored. In Germany, industry is responsible for around one-fifth of GHG emissions.
In order to positively counteract climate change, corporations as well as small and medium-sized enterprises must make their business processes climate-neutral. All business activities along the value stream need to produce as few greenhouse gases as possible.
Current surveys conducted by Staufen AG among companies in the automotive industry and in mechanical and plant engineering show that many are still at the very beginning of the transformation.
