Carbon survey: Guerbet commits to process aimed at reducing its greenhouse gas emissions
In 2012 Guerbet carried out its first greenhouse gas emission survey for 2011.
In 2011 Guerbet emitted approximately 26,000 tonnes CO2 equivalent. Energy represents almost 70% of the Group’s greenhouse emissions. Between 2010 and 2011 Guerbet succeeded in reducing its emissions by 5% per unit produced on the energy part. This is an encouraging result in achieving the target the Group has set itself for 2016, i.e. a reduction in its greenhouse gas emissions of 20% per unit produced for the energy component.
