Major textile auxiliaries and colorants supplier DyStar will launch its second “Carbon Footprint Report” which calculates the impact from its global operations in 2011.

DyStar released its first annual carbon footprint report in 2011 based on 2010 emissions data and also established 2010 as the base year for measuring progress in the coming years. The DyStar report is based on the internationally accepted Greenhouse Gas Protocol standard. In 2011, DyStar has managed to maintain a total carbon footprint of 168,133 tons of CO2e on a comparative production level to 2010.

In addition, the carbon emissions intensity per ton of production remained unchanged at 1.7. However, the carbon emission intensity per $million turnover was reduced from 235 to 216 in 2011.

DyStar has started implementing measures aimed at reducing the carbon intensity progressively over the next 8 years to achieve a 20% reduction by 2020 compared to the 2010 base year. “Our challenge now is to find ways to reduce emissions intensity.

Essentially that would mean greater energy efficiency across all our plants, laboratories and offices. This will require creative solutions technology innovation, and commitment from everyone in the company. The raw data behind the report provides additional insight into the sources and patterns of emissions across our operations. This will help us in managing our carbon footprint more effectively” noted Harry Dobrowolski CEO of DyStar.

2011 was an important year for DyStar. “We set ambitious targets and goals for reducing emissions and started developing programs to make this happen. At the same time we successfully completed the transfer of production to new manufacturing assets. As we move forward, optimizing energy use is going to be crucial area to reduce emissions across our business”, says Dr. Charu Jain, Global Sustainability Manager of DyStar.
