02/18/2020 Less Greenhouse Gas Emissions at Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse
Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Liebherr’s center of excellence for air management systems, has released it 2018 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Declaration for its sites in Toulouse and Campsas (France).
Committed to preserve the environment, the company pursues consequently its action plan regarding the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions as demonstrated by the BEGES 2018 report (Greenhouse Gas Balance). This balance sheet records the direct emissions data generated from both fixed (e.g. oil supply) and mobile sources (e.g. utility vehicles), as well as indirect emissions associated with the consumption of electricity that is necessary for the company’s activities.
Published in 2019, the results show a general downward trend of 34% on greenhouse gas emissions for the past four years in a context of growth, i.e. an addition of 145 employees from 2014 to 2018 and a turnover increase by +20% between 2014 and 2018.
These figures are the result of a coherent and consequent strategy led by Liebherr-Aerospace in terms of energy use. Several initiatives have been taken such as the replacement of oil supply, improvement of the infrastructure (e.g. installation of LED lighting, implementation of an energy management system and management of parking lighting), the optimization of test benches, especially the one which are run with refrigerants as well as the replacement of two utility vehicles by electric vehicles.
Other upcoming initiatives will be implemented in 2020, including the installation of photovoltaic panels.
