The protection of the climate and the atmosphere is one of the most important tasks of our time. Find out how HiPP uses renewable energies and technical innovations to protect climate and water.
Protection of climate and waters
Use of renewable resources
Sustainable use of resources and the protection of biodiversity are central to our sustainability management.
HiPP had already made a significant contribution to climate protection long before politics formulated the goal of reducing CO2. Since 1995, we have converted the entire energy supply in the plant at Pfaffenhofen to renewable energy sources (green electricity, biomass, solar power) and now manufacture products CO2-neutrally. Over 90% of energies used at Pfaffenhofen come from renewable energy sources.
The CO2 emissions from the remaining energy sources from fossil fuels (e.g. on business trips) are compensated for with worldwide climate projects.
Since 2001, the entire heat, hot water and steam demands in the HiPP factory have been covered by the use of biomass (wood chips). For the exemplary use of renewable energies, HiPP was awarded the “German Solar Prize” in 2011.
We work with “green electricity” from hydroelectric power stations – without nuclear power.
Since 2000, 6 solar projects have been realised, which produce a total of 52,800 kWh/a from solar energy on a collector surface of 436 m². All organic waste goes to agricultural biogas plants. Every year, 2 million kWh of electricity is generated in this way.
Water as the most important resource in the 21st century
We also deliver groundbreaking impulses for the resource of water. In order to save this increasingly valuable commodity, HiPP has used technical innovations to lower its use of water by more than two thirds in the last three decades.
