We believe in using less energy by continuously monitoring our energy usage and by applying innovative new solutions wherever possible. We are tracking the everyday energy efficiency of our manufacturing units and distribution centers, and we work together with our suppliers to implement improvements wherever possible.
We work to identify energy efficiency opportunities, and to introduce low carbon or carbon neutral energy sources. We are measuring our impact throughout the value chain, and work with our partners and suppliers to minimize our CO2 emissions.
In 2021, we saved 68 tons in CO2 with our energy and emission saving activities. For example, our manufacturing unit, Royal Copenhagen Thailand has replaced their compressors, saving 158 MWh of energy annually and resulting in 94 tons of saved CO2 emissions. In addition, our manufacturing unit, Royal Copenhagen Denmark, switched to biogas from natural gas at the end of 2021, saving almost 6 tons of GHG emissions. All in all, we have reached a reduction of 38% as a result of energy-saving actions and investments in renewable energy.
