2011 Carbon Report

It is our pleasure to present DyStar Group’s second Annual Carbon Emissions Report based on activity data collected from across the company in 2011.

2nd Annual Carbon Emission Report

Our first report in 2011 helped us to establish the base year for DyStar Group’s carbon dioxide (CO2) inventory for the calendar year 2010 in line with established international reporting frameworks such as the WRI / WBCSD Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol.


Measuring, reducing and reporting organizational carbon footprint is an important aspect of our wider sustainability commitment. We acknowledge that we have a critical role to play in mitigating climate change by introducing innovative products and services that reduce carbon emissions of our customers, and by reducing our own carbon footprint. Reducing carbon footprint not only benefits the planet, it also makes business sense as cutting emissions lowers business cost.

Over the past year, we have implemented and improved methods and mechanisms for gathering reliable activity data for various sources of emissions within the DyStar Group. We are also evaluating options and possibilities for reducing emissions from various sources. We are gearing up organization-wide resources to achieve this.

We have voluntarily set a target to reduce DyStar Group’s carbon emissions by 20% by 2020 from the 2010 level. Essentially, we would have to find ways to reduce consumption of energy while still delivering healthy growth in business, and the best-in-class products and services that DyStar is reputed for.

We are confident that with the carbon reduction initiatives as well as a number of other sustainability programmes, DyStar would continue to strengthen its reputation as a responsible and trusted brand.
