Our Carbon Footprint
Since 2008, Bertelsmann has regularly calculated its Group-wide Carbon Footprint and gathered other data on energy, paper, water, wastewater and waste. To do this, each year the Corporate Center collects, analyzes and aggregates the environmental data of the companies and sites of the divisions from all around the world. The results of the Carbon Footprint are published as part of the Bertelsmann GRI reporting. They not only create transparency about impacts on the environment and climate, as well as on Bertelsmann’s environmental performance, but also enable the management to derive measures for improvement.
