Controlling greenhouse gas emissions

Hager Group has made reducing greenhouse gas emissions one of its priorities. In 2013 the company evaluated the greenhouse gas emissions at its main production sites for all three of the inventory "scopes," that is to say from the upstream extraction of raw materials to downstream product distribution.

Following this analysis, we launched a series of emission-reducing initiatives, giving priority to reducing energy consumed on site, optimising business travel and logistics activities.

For example, the production site in Dongguan China, which produces electrical cabinets and enclosures, has replaced fuel oil with energy wood chips at its painting unit. This has brought down the energy costs of this activity by 70%. This Chinese site has also worked on reducing the volume of wastewater, emissions of SO2 and of dust into the environment.
