Electrolux said that by year-end 2012 its factories, offices, and warehouses will use 15% less energy than in 2008. The savings will result in CO2 reductions of more than 70,000 tons, it said, the equivalent of the yearly emissions from more than 30,000 cars.
At the end of 2008, Electrolux said it reduced energy consumption by 14.5% compared to 2005 levels. This, it said, is reducing CO2 emissions by 90,000 tons - the equivalent of the yearly emissions from some 40,000 cars. Now, Electrolux has made a renewed commitment to reduce energy a further 15% by 2012.
"Electrolux has a role to play in the climate challenge. We can do this while growing our business and streamlining our operations," said Hans Stråberg, Electrolux President and CEO.
