    Greenhouse gas emissions Scope 1 and 2

    Reduction of our Scope 1 and 2 emissions​

    We reduced our Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions by 9% year on year. With that, we have achieved a 51% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared with the base year 2019. The goal is to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2030. The climate target has been validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and certified as being consistent with the 1.5-degrees target.

    Greenhouse gas emissions Scope 3 upstream and downstream

    CO₂ emissions in our upstream supply chain as well as from our products

    In our upstream supply chain, greenhouse gas emissions are (following a change in the method of calculation) at the same level as in the previous year and up 24% from the base year. We were able to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from the use phase of our products by 10% year on year, for a 7% reduction compared with the base year, and are therefore on target for 2030.

    Water consumption and hazardous waste

    Resource use in our operations​

    While hazardous waste generation across the group has increased, water consumption is down 6%. Both values are still above the level needed to reach our target. ​

    Share of women

    Promote diversity within our own workforce

    The Krones Group employed more women, both in management-level positions and in general, in 2023 than in 2022. The proportion of women in management positions and in the overall workforce increased by 12% and 4% respectively compared to the previous year.​


    Education for our workforce

    Participation in continuing education opportunities across the Krones Group is increasing steadily.​

    Workplace accidents

    Strengthening occupational safety

    Workplace accidents were down slightly year on year, while lost days were up in 2023 from the previous year. Nevertheless, we are on target for both figures.
