Schréder - Sustainability Report 2022


Main initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of our infrastructure include the following:

Non-hazardous waste treatment 2022

Factories We use 2 types of energy in our factories, electricity and natural gas. In 2022, 69% of our energy consumption came from natural gas and 31% from electricity.

In addition to the increased share of green electricity, our total electricity consumption in our factories decreased by 10% in 2022 (5,581 MWh) compared to 2018 (6,188 MWh) thanks to a more conscious use. Another goal for the coming years is to assess how we can reduce our natural gas consumption and switch to renewable sources by 2030. This action will also help us achieve our SBTi targets. As well as our efforts to reduce our energy consumption, we have continued to work on waste management to identify opportunities for further improvement. In 2020, the majority (84%) of our factory waste was recycled, rising to 87% by 2022. In addition to the increase in recycling, avoiding excess consumption is also a priority in our strategy. For example, in our inbound logistics process, we use a lot of reusable crates with our suppliers. Schréder’s total non-hazardous solid waste in 2022 was 1,728 tonnes, with a recycling rate of 87%. Our recycling rate increased by 9% compared to 2018 (78%).

Since 2020, we have put a strong focus on increasing the use of green electricity in our factories. In 2020, we switched the electricity supply of our largest factory in Spain to 100% green electricity. In 2021, we achieved a similar transition at our factory in Hungary and in 2022 at our factory in Australia. At the end of 2022, 3 of our 7 factories were only using renewable electricity, resulting in 62% of our total electricity consumption being green. We are committed to continuing these efforts and aim to convert our factories in Portugal and South Africa to green electricity by 2025.
