Our Carbon Footprint
Bertelsmann sees climate change as a serious challenge for its businesses and for society as a whole. Initiated in 2008 by the Bertelsmann Executive Board, "be green" is the Group's overarching environmental and climate protection strategy. A central pillar of the "be green" strategy is the regular compilation of a Group-wide carbon footprint and the monitoring of other relevant key environmental indicators. Bertelsmann's environmental and climate-protection efforts are aimed at reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and minimizing the overall environmental impact of our business activity.
