Energy & Climate

By 2030, we want to reduce our specific greenhouse gas emissions by 33% (vs. 2012) and lower our specific energy consumption by 50% (vs. 2007).

To this end, we are developing products that help prevent greenhouse gases, reducing our own energy consumption and switching to renewable energy.
