Environmental management system

In April 2015, external environmental auditors from the certification body DNV GL found once again that DEUTZ AG’s environmental management system conforms to the international ISO 14001 standard. For the first time since the environmental management system was implemented, a main target was defined and quantified in 2015: a year-on-year reduction of CO2 emissions by at least 2.0 per cent per engine.

A comparison of total annual emissions shows that CO2 emissions have gone down by around 13 per cent. This trend correlates closely with the production programme, which was smaller than in 2014.

CO2 emissions per engine (Scopes 1–3) increased to 460kg in 2015 (2014: 365kg). The targeted reduction in CO2 emissions of 2 per cent per unit of production was not achieved because we have an underlying energy requirement for the production of our engines (Scope 2 emissions) that applies regardless of the size of a production programme.

The closure of the site in Cologne-Deutz and the construction of the new shaft centre at the Porz plant are expected to lead to a significant improvement in our carbon footprint. DEUTZ is therefore continuing to pursue its target of a 2 per cent reduction in CO2 per engine in the coming reporting year.
