Reduced Carbon Footprint

Reduced Carbon Footprint 

Greenhouse gas emissions account for a significant part of the environmental impact from our production processes. In 2003, we performed our first energy audit and calculated the greenhouse gas emissions from the plant. Since then, we have been working continuously to reduce our energy consumption and achieve a transition to more sustainable energy solutions:

  • 2003 Attends first energy audit performed
  • 2005 Recycling of heat from compressed air system
  • 2007 Recycling of heat from production exhaust air
  • 2008 Connecting to renewable district heating
  • 2011 More than 50% of the factory's heat demand is covered by heat recovery
  • 2013 Completion of a fully automated high bay warehouse heated mainly by heat from the newly manufactured stored products
  • 2016 LED lighting warehouse and production
  • 2017 Change to 100% renewable electricity in the plant
  • 2019 Change to 100% climate neutral electricity in the plant (Gold Standard certified compensation for the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions from our renewable electricity)
  • 2021 Climate Partner Climate neutral company certification.

*(Gold Standard certified compensation for the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions from our renewable electricity).

Since 2004, our CO2 emissions from the plant (scope 1 and 2) have been reduced by over 95%, whilst at the same time production volume has doubled. Reduction has been made through:

  • Change to renewable electricity and heating
  • Recycling of heat
  • Upgraded to LED based lighting

 

In 2021, Attends decided to compensate for the remaining 5% and include some additional scope 3 emissions covering employee commuting and to certify the Aneby production plant as Carbon Neutral via Climate Partner.
