Decarbonisation

At Etex, we are determined to progress towards carbon neutrality. We focus on short-term energy efficiency projects and long-term transformative carbon excellence initiatives. We maintain a dual focus: reducing our emissions across our entire value chain and designing low-carbon products and solutions that help our end-customers to reduce their impact throughout the daily use of the buildings.

Our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

In 2023, our absolute energy consumption and emissions intensity increased as a result of the full integration of URSA (recognised for seven months in 2022) and additional sites gained from acquiring Superglass and Skamol. The second effect is due to the decline in volumes in the second half of the year, as glass wool plants consume energy even when idle. On the other hand, we doubled our photovoltaic (PV) capacity to 15 MW across 12 sites, generating 20 GWh annually (2% of the total electricity consumption), and avoiding 5,000 tonnes CO2.

How do we reach our goals?

We have set an ambitious target to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions intensity (CO2e emissions of Scopes 1 and 2) by 35% by 2030 compared to our 2018 baseline. To achieve our target, we developed an extensive decarbonisation roadmap in 2022, focusing on short-term energy efficiency projects and long-term transformative carbon excellence initiatives. We have the tools and the capabilities to support this transition. We maintain a dual focus: reducing our emissions across our entire value chain and designing low-carbon products and solutions that help our end-customers to reduce their impact throughout the daily use of the buildings.
