Accordingly, the UN is working to stabilize the atmospheric content of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, at a level that will prevent serious manmade climate changes.
As member of a global industrial conglomerate, LIOS wishes to support the development towards more environmentally sustainable business operation. Industry and production have an important part to play in the work to control carbon emission, and it is LIOS' and its holding organisation NKT’s ambition to reduce the Group’s carbon dioxide emission.
In 2011 the NKT Group achieved its goal of a 12% reduction in CO2 emission relative to output. Set in 2008, the goal was to be achieved in the period 2009-2011, against the 2008 baseline figure. The result was obtained by means of energy economy measures and new, more energy-efficient production facilities.
The NKT Group’s greatest contribution to CO2 reduction consists in development of new products that reduce user energy consumption, and development of products that support the spread of sustainable energy production.
