Carbon footprint

Calculating the carbon footprint involves collecting data from across the company to determine the greenhouse gas emissions (in CO2eq ) caused by Gruner + Jahr's operations over a year. With the help of Bertelsmann SE and the independent Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IFEU) in Heidelberg, the complete energy consumption of the company is determined and the resulting volume  of greenhouse gas emissions is extrapolated using conversion factors.

The idea behind the carbon footprint is to use resources and energy more efficiently and to reduce the impact of business activities on the environment.
