Emissions same as previous year despite higher energy consumption

Infraserv Höchst’s corporate carbon footprint for 2018 totals 1,585,061 metric tons of CO2 equivalents. This represents a minimal year-on-year decrease of approx. 900 metric tons of CO2 equivalents.

Direct CO2 emissions increased due to higher energy consumption at the park. On the other hand, there was a concurrent decrease in CO2 emissions resulting from the consumption of secondary energy sources (electricity) by Infraserv and customers.

The specific CO2 emissions of electricity improved year-on-year to 0.230 kg CO2/kWh (excluding purchased green power certificates: 0.276 kg CO2/kWh) since more electricity was generated at Infraserv’s highly efficient plants.
