"Modern leadership culture has a performance-enhancing effect"

A working climate that promotes innovation, diversity, and the courage to tell uncomfortable truths is more central than ever to a company's success today. In an interview, Gabriele Fanta, Head of Group Human Resources, explains how the new leadership principles at Körber specifically strengthen fruitful collaboration in everyday working life.

Switching to green energy (electricity and gas)

Our commitment:

The switch from fossil fuels to green energy is a material contribution to the reduction of CO₂. We are promoting this at all of our locations. Wherever it makes sense, we switch to producing our own green energy, for example by operating our own photovoltaic systems.


    We want to use green electricity and green gas wherever and whenever possible.

    What we have planned: 

    In order to become CO₂-neutral, electricity and gas from renewable energies must be used at all Körber Group locations in the future. To do this, we check the availability at all of our locations worldwide. Where green electricity and green gas are not available, we look for alternative options. In support of this development, we want to reduce energy consumption and promote efficiency projects. Another project is the expansion of Körber's own production capacities for green electricity using photovoltaic systems.

    What we have achieved to date: 

    Almost all of our German production sites are already supplied with green electricity. Moreover, we are already working with green electricity internationally, for example at our locations in Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Malaysia. The remaining switchover potential in Germany and internationally will be exploited by the end of 2022 wherever possible.

    Since a long time we have also relied on the production of our own green electricity using photovoltaics. Our first system was installed in Leingarten ten years ago. Since then two further locations have been added: At the end of 2020 a PV system was installed in Allschwil near Basel (Switzerland); the most recent addition was made in Richmond (USA) in 2022. We have also identified other business locations with fundamental potential to generate electricity from solar energy. These measures will be gradually implemented at suitable locations between now and the end of 2023.

    We have also identified the locations where natural gas consumption is highest. As yet, green gas is not being offered for all of these locations. By 2023 we accordingly plan to convert all the locations where green gas is available or to identify green alternatives to gas. To do this, we have to work together with teams of experts in order to examine the technical implementation options. In general, the challenges of implementing a changeover have increased enormously for everyone since the start of the Ukraine crisis. We are nevertheless working hard to find and implement sustainable solutions.

    • Percentage of green electricity in the total electricity purchased
    • Percentage of green gas or green gas alternatives in the total volume of gas purchased
    • Number of sites equipped with PV/number of sites suitable for PV
    • All Körber locations (where possible) with green electricity by 2022 (100%)
    • All Körber locations (where possible) with green gas by 2023 (100%)
    • All Körber locations (where possible) with PV by 2023 (100%). Nine additional locations by 2023 (more than 7,000 MWh of solar power as calculated by the photovoltaic service provider)
    • Total electricity purchased on the basis of green/renewable tariffs in 2021: 18,461,031 kWh. The percentage of green electricity in the total electricity purchased increased from 7.43% in 2019 to 40.48% in 2021. The remaining potential will be exploited by the end of 2022.
    • In 2021 the Körber Group consumed 55,470,047 kWh of natural gas. Five locations mainly contribute to consumption. The biggest natural gas consumer is the combined heat and power plant at the Bergedorf site, which also produces the largest amount of its own electricity.
    • In 2021 a PV system with 560 MWh of solar power/year (calculation by the photovoltaic service provider) was added at Körber Pharma’s Allschwil site in Switzerland. This means that three PV systems are now in operation at the Körber Group.

    We reduce our energy consumption and become CO₂-neutral by 2025.
