Wacker Chemie AG published their Sustainability Report for 2011 and 2012, which provides a clear and complete account of sustainability efforts to customers, business partners, employees, regulatory agencies, neighbors, and the public. It is available in English and German, and offers details on emissions, oxygen demand, and waste. In addition, the 2011/2012 report is the first to include specific energy targets, indirect energy consumption, and information on water demand and fresh water supply at Wacker locations. In keeping with Wacker’s commitment to environmentally responsible practices, the company reported a 22% reduction in specific energy consumption since 2007. Wacker has made sustainability one of the central tenets of their business model as the company continues to grow in emerging markets.
