DyStar reduces GHG emissions by 13% in 2012
Aug '13
The DyStar Group recently released its third Annual Greenhouse Gas Emissions Assessment Report, otherwise known as Carbon Footprint Report, which is based on its global operations in the reporting year of 2012.

In 2012, DyStar implemented a cloud-based data gathering system, with real-time emission calculation for the global organization, which greatly improved the accuracy of the report.  It also expanded the boundaries of its carbon footprint assessment to include emission sources that were previously excluded due to their limited impact on their overall footprint.

Compared to the base year 2010, DyStar has reduced its GHG emissions by 13% in 2012; and the GHG intensity of its production also went down by 27%.

These significant reductions are partly accounted for by the closure of two of its most carbon intensive production plants with production re-located to other existing plants which had invested heavily in state-of-the-art, energy efficient production technologies.

The other major production plants have also delivered significant reductions in their emission intensity during 2012. In addition, some of the reduction in emissions is attributable to a lesser energy-intensive product mix as compared to the product mix of 2010 and 2011.

“While we have achieved our target for the reporting year 2012, our aim is to continuously improve upon our emission performance. I am confident that with the numerous initiatives we have in place, we will reduce our GHG emissions by 20% on a GHG intensity basis by 2020 from the 2010 level, while still delivering healthy growth in our business, and continuing to deliver best-in-class products and services” says Dr. Charu Jain, Global Sustainability Manager at DyStar.
