Wärtsilä’s targets for reducing GHG and other emissions

Target

Schedule Status
To reduce energy consumption by at least 10% in terms of absolute consumption (GWh) by 2016 compared to mean energy consumption in 2005. 2016 The second phase of the Wärtsilä energy audit scheme started in 2011. The energy audits will be conducted in France, Norway, Singapore, the Netherlands and the UK. The energy audits identify the savings potential and measures to improve energy efficiency. During 2011, Wärtsilä also created a framework for identifying energy saving potential for companies outside the audit scope. The local rollout of the framework takes place in 2012-2013. Energy saving actions are monitored on an annual basis. By 2011, energy savings of 12.4 GWh have been reached, which represents about 26% of the final target.
