"During 2021/22, we set a further milestone on our road to attain climate neutrality. The conversion of nearly all our production facilities to renewable energies reduced our CO2 emissions by half from 20,000 tonnes per year.
The lighting brands location in Dornbirn, for example, has already switched over to 90% renewable energies and cut its emissions by 40%. Our aim is to achieve Scope 1 and 2 climate neutrality according to the Green-house Gas Protocol by 2025.
The plans to meet this goal call for a steady increase in the share of renewable energies and the continuous evaluation of our emissions, both upstream and downstream, as the basis for making further adjustments".
Alfred Felder - Chief Executive Officer
"Sustainability and climate change will be two of the most significant challenges of the 21st century. As a manufacturer, Thorn Lighting must take action to be part of the solution.
The Zumtobel Group, of which Thorn is a proud member, has signed up to 12 of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. To publicly demonstrate Thorn’s commitment to operate our business responsibly, we are looking to offer and develop more sustainable products and solutions as well as finding ways to improve our processes in a bid to reduce waste, bring down energy consumption and lower our carbon emissions.
This will be achieved by investing in research and development to bring you, our customers and partners, innovative technologies through products and solutions, so that you, too, can reach your own goals when it comes to tackling this shared, universal issue.
We look forward to continued collaboration in a sustained effort to make light work and also protect people, places and the environment."
