• A holistic response to challenges

    In order to cut our CO₂ emissions throughout the Group, we drew up MAN’s Climate Strategy in 2011, which included the binding goal of reducing absolute CO₂ emissions from our production plants by 2020.

  • Systematically reducing CO₂ emissions

    When it comes to reducing energy consumption and CO₂ emissions, MAN pursues a whole range of different avenues. We were able to reduce our production-related CO₂ emissions by 26.0% compared with the baseline year of 2008, which equates to around 141,374 tons. We achieved this thanks to a variety of measures: for example, combined heat and power plants at several production sites, a large-scale photovoltaic system in South Africa, new lighting concepts, and energy-saving air conditioning systems using well water. Looking ahead to 2025 and 2030, MAN is currently working on new objectives to further reduce CO₂ emissions at its sites.

  • Focus on energy consumption

    In 2018, energy consumption at MAN production sites increased to 1.41 million megawatt-hours (MWh) (2017: 1.38 million MWh). In the Commercial Vehicles business area, energy consumption per vehicle produced fell from 8.4 MWh in 2017 to 7.6 MWh per unit in 2018.
