We also calculate the positive CO2 effects facilitated for our customers through the use of our products. We combine this figure with our own CO2 emissions, then use this enablement factor to measure our overall performance in relation to climate protection. According to this figure, the positive CO2 effects facilitated for our customers in Germany were 85 percent higher in 2018 than our own CO2 emissions (enablement factor of 1.85 to 1).
The positive CO2 effects facilitated for our customers through the use of our products and solutions rose from 11.9 to 12.1 million tons in 2018.
