FUCHS to be CO2-neutral in two months

Lubricants giant FUCHS has signalled its commitment to climate protection by announcing it will be completely CO2-neutral as early as next year.
 
FUCHS, which has its UK headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent, will be CO2-neutral globally by 1 January 2020 – from energy consumption in production to consumables in administration.
 
FUCHS will offset its CO2 emissions by investing in climate protection projects aimed primarily at promoting renewable energies. The projects are accredited, approved and monitored according to internationally recognised certification standards such as the Gold Standard, as well as by renowned organisations such as the United Nations (UN).
 
The UK company has been trailblazing with the launch of its Lube Cube, which gives customers the option of buying its leading products in a recyclable cardboard box rather than a plastic container.
 
“The change has resulted in an incredible saving of more than 660,000kg of plastic since the Lube Cube launched in 2012,” the company says.
 
Furthermore, more than 2000 solar panels have been installed at FUCHS’ base on New Century Street in Hanley, Stoke. The panels now produce 12% of the required energy for the entire plant.
