We are purchasing renewable energy in order to achieve our climate goals. Since the end of 2020, we have sourced 100 percent of our purchased electricity from renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy and hydropower. Some of our sites purchase energy directly from renewable sources, while for others we acquire green electricity with a guarantee of origin.
We’re also increasingly generating electricity with photovoltaic systems. In 2021, we commissioned a photovoltaic system at our production facility in Suzhou, with around 1,980 solar panels installed on a rooftop surface measuring 7,000 square meters. The system has a total capacity of 964 MWh. Compared to conventionally generated electricity, we reduce CO₂ by around 900 metric tons a year. More sites to follow.
