The steadily growing requirements related to the transparent and credible disclosure of sustainable issues to major car manufacturers are also reflected in the upstream value chain. Increasing pressure is increasingly prompting carmakers to expand their extensive supply chain management regarding to sustainability-relevant measures and performances, and to make these stakeholders increasingly responsible. As a result, Superior Industries Europe is not unaffected by these developments.
On the one hand, the calculation of a Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) and the publication of a sustainability report should meet the rising external expectations. On the other hand, such measures are necessary in order to meet internal requirements and to derive potential for improvement on this basis. The initial goal was to calculate the greenhouse gas emissions of the year 2017 at all locations as well as the inclusion of the respective energy consumption, i. e. all Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions caused by the company should be covered.
The DFGE supported Superior Industries Europe in calculating its emissions. In the context of Superior Industries Europe, the challenge was due to the broad range of products, in particular in the adequate data collection for production-related greenhouse gases.
