Our energy needs have a direct impact on our emissions and nature. Production operations account for a significant share of our energy requirements at our site in Melle, Germany. Since 2010, Tetra has exclusively used electricity that comes from sustainable, regenerative energy sources. This saves up to 2,500 t of CO2 per year, which roughly corresponds to the annual CO2 emissions of 315 people.
Additionally, Tetra has clearly defined goals to reduce its energy consumption by a significant percentage annually and therefore to cut its emissions in the long term. Since 2014, we have achieved this with the help of the ISO 50001 energy management system, which shows potential for savings in our consumption. It influences our organisational and technical processes to improve our energy efficiency systematically and continuously.
