The consequences of global warming are becoming increasingly tangible and the pressure on companies is growing. Success in reducing emissions depends to a large extent on the voluntary and consistent actions of business in industrialised countries. We at Conradi+Kaiser GmbH are also taking responsibility.
DID YOU KNOW?
According to a survey by Statista, the per capita emissions of greenhouse gases in Germany in 2019 amounted to 7.9 tonnes.
We have had the carbon footprint for the company calculated (Balance Scope 1&2) and and taking all necessary measures to continue to ensure sustainable production.
With products from Conradi+Kaiser, you are relying on a closed economic cycle. A requirement that is becoming increasingly important when awarding contracts.
“With the compensation of emissions, C+K consistently pursues the company’s sustainability strategy. In addition to production in the sense of the economic cycle, all planning is based on an ecological concept.”
Reduce cleverly, compensate cleverly
This greenhouse gas balance sheet provides a transparent overview of our company’s greenhouse gas emissions. The report thus forms an important component in our climate protection commitment and thus the basis for the coming years to work specifically on reducing our CO2 footprint.
However, we are also aware that a complete reduction of greenhouse gases is hardly possible and that climate protection is a global problem. Greenhouse gases are also distributed evenly in the atmosphere. Therefore, it makes sense to avoid emissions where the costs are lowest.
In addition, projects in emerging and developing countries contribute to improving the economic, social and ecological situation and support the realisation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. For emerging and developing countries, emissions trading is an essential driver for the transfer of clean technologies and sustainable economic development.
Several hundred thousand tons of used tyres accumulate every year in Germany alone. Incineration and illegal storage contribute to a not inconsiderable increase in the pollution of oceans and to the deterioration of the climate. As a company that has been bringing rubber granulate extracted from ELT (End of Life-Tyres) to new flowering for over thirty years, we are particularly proud to have been making this valuable contribution to the ecological balance for decades. In this way, we act entirely in the spirit of the Recycling Management Act.
OUR RAW MATERIAL “RUBBER GRANULATE” – SUSTAINABLE AND SAFE
We use rubber granulate recycled from old tyres as a raw material and use it to make new and high-quality everyday products. Rubber granulate is robust, insulating, shock-absorbing, flexible and sound-absorbing – properties that are reflected in all our products. This makes rubber granulate the most valuable resource for us and Conradi+Kaiser an important part of the processing industry in the complex of the circular economy.
