CLR reaches solar photovoltaic system milestone

CLR has completed the commissioning of its third and final solar photovoltaic system, allowing the German cosmetic actives maker to produce up to 50% of its daily electricity consumption.

Any excess energy generated that is not used is fed into the Berlin power grid, contributing to the sustainable local energy supply.

The energy CLR currently feeds into the grid each year is equivalent to the annual consumption of 151 households, one school or 5.3m LED streetlights.

CLR said the commissioning of the photovoltaic system is a clear indication of its aims to reduce its environmental impact and to contribute to the fight against climate change.

Within the framework of the Science-Based Targets (SBTi), CLR has set itself an ambitious emission reduction target.

“CLR commits itself to significantly reducing its absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 23% come 2030 compared to the base year 2021 and to ensuring and reducing its Scope 3 emissions," said a spokesperson.

“We remain committed to implementing innovative solutions and technologies,” the spokesperson added.

This progress reflects the commitments outlined in CLR’s Acting Together programme, which aims to "combine quality, environmental and social responsibility" with the "responsible use of natural resources."
