Because every kilowatt counts
When it comes to protecting the planet and creating a sustainable Bekaert, few things carry as much impact as reducing the carbon footprint in our own facilities.
We launched a global program, You Know Watt, at the end of 2021 to reduce our energy consumption and use energy more efficiently in the plants. Because we care about every kilowatt we use.
This initiative helps us to achieve the goal of reducing our carbon footprint by 46.2% by 2030. With all of our plants working together as one team, we will reduce our energy intensity by 10-15% which is a significant part of our overall Bekaert goal. Ultimately, we aim to reach carbon net zero by 2050.
