FUCHS Neutrality Strategy
Since 2020, FUCHS has been returning a carbon-neutral balance sheet worldwide on a gate-to-gate scale – from energy consumption in production to consumables in administration. By 2025, the group is set to become carbon-neutral from cradle to gate, along the entire process. This means that suppliers and their raw materials will also be included and FUCHS will be able to process more sustainable raw materials for carbon-neutral products in the future. To this end, standards are currently being developed together with partners in order to quantify and record sustainability along the entire value chain.
The Carbon Neutrality Strategy is embedded in the sustainability initiative that was started in 2010. Dr. Lutz Lindemann, CTO FUCHS PETROLUB SE, holds responsibility for the area of Sustainability within the group. The Global Sustainability Department is headed by Markus Garb as Vice President Sustainability. In addition, there is a Local Sustainability Officer (LSO) at every national unit who coordinates the implementation of the sustainability targets and activities locally.
