The Group’s current target is to reduce by 1 megaton its greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 at constant perimeter. And since two-thirds of Solvay’s emissions are due to the energy it consumes, whether purchased from third parties or self-produced, shifting the Group’s energy mix towards renewables or non-fossil fuels is a powerful way to act upon this.

There are three levers Solvay can use to reduce its energy-related emissions: switching types of fuel, sourcing renewable electricity and of course promoting energy efficiency to reduce consumption altogether.
