Iberchem reduces CO2 emissions

Spanish fragrance house Iberchem claims to have reduced its CO2 emissions by 85.14% at its headquarters between 2018 and 2021, which it says represents a milestone in its sustainability objectives.

The company said it achieved this goal by replacing lighting with LEDs, installing solar panels and purchasing electricity from certified renewable sources.

Iberchem achieved a neutral carbon footprint in 2021 in terms of its scope 1 and 2 emissions, and has absorbed the remaining CO2 emissions by joining the carbon-neutral natural regeneration project Galixia Rexenera: Outeiro do Catadoiro (Caldas de Reis).

The company added that it has launched a decarbonization program for its 24 subsidiaries around the world.

Iberchem is also implementing plans to reduce scope 3 emissions to reach the goal of zero decarbonization.

Iberchem’s latest efforts in terms of sustainability are aligned with parent company Croda’s sustainability commitment, which sets a goal of a 50% reduction in scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions by 2030 and zero emissions by 2050.
