Der angeschlagene Lichtkonzern Osram ist im dritten Quartal wegen der weiterhin schwachen Automärkte sowie Umbaukosten in die Verlustzone gerutscht
Starting in the current fiscal year, Osram intends to consistently reduce its carbon dioxide emissions and thus contribute to achieving the Paris Climate Protection Agreement.
The aim is to save energy in all areas of production and administration and to increase energy efficiency. The use of renewable energies also plays a decisive role, according to a company report. Osram also wants to make its upstream and downstream supply chain even more energy-efficient.
“In line with our vision of 'Light for a better world', our energy-efficient products and solutions provide us with a great lever to drive climate protection forward,” explains Ingo Bank, CFO of Osram Licht AG. “The energy-efficient products and intelligent lighting control solutions are already helping Osram customers reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by five million tonnes a year.”
According to the United for Efficiency (U4E) initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme, a consistent global switch to energy-efficient lighting could reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 390 million tonnes per year and save consumers around 50 billion dollars in energy costs.
