Harvia strives to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of its operations to limit global warming and contribute to global efforts in safeguarding the environment. That requires systematic actions in several areas, such as energy use, logistics, and purchasing.
Harvia’s target is to make its operations carbon neutral by 2030. Harvia’s emissions calculation is performed in accordance with the standards and guidelines of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG). Harvia’s Group-level Scope 1 CO₂ emissions in 2022 were 1,196 tCO₂ (1,269) and Scope 2 emissions 749 tCO₂ (1,292). Total emissions reduced by 24% compared to 2021.
Harvia is also targeting 100% emission-free electricity consumption at group level at sites where it is possible by 2030. The company is using the year 2020 as the baseline, when 68% of its electricity was emission-free. In 2022, the share of emission-free electricity was 73%.
We strive for carbon neutrality in our operations to limit global warming and contribute to global efforts in safeguarding the environment.
In 2022, Harvia conducted a group-level survey about energy use. The results have already been utilized and energy consumption has been reduced, for example, by implementing energy-saving lighting, installing new air conditioning systems and reducing idling of plant equipment. Real-time monitoring of electricity consumption enables immediate adjustment to possible changes. For the German plant, options for replacing the oil heating are being explored.
