MAHLE Releases 2023 Sustainability Report

MAHLE noted it made significant progress in reducing its CO2 emissions, and increasing the use of renewable electricity.

MAHLE announced it released its 2023 Sustainability Report, where key achievements included:

-CO2 emissions were significantly reduced;
-Use of renewable electricity increased;
-Climate targets for 2020 were validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi);
-Process for more sustainable product development was implemented;
-Progress was made in occupational safety; and
-Sustainability goals are firmly anchored in group strategy  

“We are on track with our sustainability goals,” said Georg Dietz, member of the Group Management Board and responsible, among other things, for sustainability, environmental management, and occupational safety. “Sustainable thinking and acting permeates all areas of activity for our group. That is why we have firmly anchored measurable sustainability goals in our MAHLE 2030+ Group strategy.”

Compared with base year 2019, MAHLE said it reduced its emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels (Scope 1) and the import of purchased electricity (Scope 2) by 43 percent. This puts the technology group on track to achieve its intermediate goal: reducing these emissions by 49 percent by 2030. MAHLE aims to become CO2-neutral by 2040, in accordance with the goals set out in the Paris Agreement. 

Compared to 2022, MAHLE added it increased its use of renewable electricity by 10 percent. This was mainly achieved via the increased use of solar power – for example, in a new installation at the plant in Izmir (Turkey). In addition, MAHLE leveraged solar thermal energy, such as at the MAHLE site in Gurgaon, India, to operate a water heating system.

MAHLE reduced emissions in the area of supply chain and product use (Scope 3) by 9 percent. For 2030, the reduction target for this area is 28 percent of 2019 levels, according to the company.
