Dometic, based in Stockholm, the specialist in products for mobile living that has just bought three other companies in the solar and vehicle accessories sector within one month, aims to increase its energy efficiency and switch to renewable energy sources to reduce its carbon footprint further. The company’s just-released climate roadmap expands impact monitoring and identifies reduction activities. A long-term goal to reduce CO2 emissions by 50 percent by 2030 has already been communicated as part of the Q1 2021 interim report. Clear milestones and corresponding reduction targets have also been defined for 2021 and 2024.
Eva Karlsson, executive VP and head of group operations, said: “In order to reach these targets, Dometic aims to increase the share of energy from renewable sources over the next few years. Starting in 2021, operations across Germany will have fully renewable electricity, which is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 40 percent in EMEA.”
To obtain a more complete picture of the group’s climate impact, the company has initiated a footprint inventory of the transportation of goods in addition to the previous reporting and monitoring represented by energy and electricity consumed in operations. Progress toward sustainability goals will be visible on a quarterly basis, beginning with the most recent quarterly report. Dometic’s goals are not only related to the reduction of CO2 emissions but also injury rates and the proportion of female managers in the company.
