Stahl at a glance in 2021

Chemistry that benefits the world

Our focus is on fighting climate change and reducing the direct GHG emissions and environmental impact of our own operations (by investing in renewable energy and efficiencies) as well as that of the value chain into which we provide our products and services (indirect Scope 3 emissions account for over 90% of our total CO2 emissions). We made progress towards our 2023 and 2030 targets this year, reducing our CO2 intensity, water consumption and our waste.

Climate change is a core concern – and risk – for Stahl. It also creates opportunities for new products, such as renewable carbon-based technologies. By integrating a climate resilience plan into the Stahl strategy, we believe we can secure our future and be a positive force for climate action in our industry. In 2021, we published the Stahl Climate Resilience & Adaption Plan, which sets out our approach to this fundamental issue, including our ambitious targets and how we plan to achieve them.
