The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has validated Jungheinrich’s climate target of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.

Jungheinrich locations in 28 countries now obtain their electricity exclusively from renewable sources

The SBTi is a partnership between CDP, a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). 

The intermediate steps required by Jungheinrich to achieve its target have been confirmed by the SBTi.

Dr Lars Brzoska, Jungheinrich chief executive officer, says: “Only with a scientifically based foundation can we limit the human-made greenhouse effect and the resulting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. It is the only way for humankind to ensure that climate change’s drastic consequences and risks are significantly reduced.” 

In 2021, Jungheinrich joined the SBTi and officially committed to actively contributing to achieving the 1.5 degree climate target. 

Jungheinrich locations in 28 countries now obtain their electricity exclusively from renewable sources. 

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions further in its business operations, the company has initiated additional measures such as the gradual exit from fossil fuels and the complete electrification of its vehicle fleet.

Jungheinrich forklifts with lithium-ion batteries already consume around 20% less energy in daily use (compared to lead-acid alternatives). 

If the trucks are also powered by green electricity, they produce hardly any emissions when in use.

“We have set ourselves ambitious targets,” says Dr Brzoska. 

“Tackling the climate crisis is a mammoth task. Only together can we create a more sustainable world for future generations. Jungheinrich is contributing its share.” 

For this reason, the company’s business partners are also closely involved in the path to net zero greenhouse gas emissions. 

Jungheinrich has currently surveyed more than 700 suppliers on environmental protection issues. They already account for 75% of Jungheinrich’s purchasing volume.

The Jungheinrich Group is one of the world's leading suppliers of industrial trucks, warehousing technology and materials flow technology. In
