Environmental policy

As a good neighbour, ESD-SIC wants to produce in a socially responsible manner by further optimising and innovating its business processes. ESD-SIC aims to achieve this through a range of measures, such as using sustainable raw materials, reducing CO2 emissions and saving energy, all in close partnership with regional chain partners and other stakeholders.

In this context, ESD-SIC has the following objectives:

  • to actively prevent, minimise or further control the negative consequences of business operations on the environment and its immediate surroundings.
  • to further expand its position as the most reliable, eco-friendly and energy-efficient SiC producer worldwide.
  • to reduce the carbon footprint of silicon carbide by 70% in 2030 compared to 2010, and by 65% compared to 2020.
