Interview

What does industrial decarbonization look like?

Interview of Florence Moro, head of Industrial Excellence at Hager Group and leading the decarbonisation of the Group Manufacturing

Florence Moro, Head of Manufacturing Excellence at Hager Group explains in a few words, what it takes for a Group like Hager to follow an ambitious process to bring its production plants to to the forefront of eco-responsability!

Encouraging initial results! The investment plan for the first six plants is under validation to be implemented in 2023. But in the meantime, Hager's teams are active and achieving initial results.

“As soon as the objectives were set, and on the advice of Eolos and Naldeo, we communicated with the teams, to involve them as much as possible. We presented our progress and organised thematic focuses for the network of plant energy managers, so that they could participate in the reflection phases, upstream of the project. Beyond the global roadmap, this also allows us to work in a “quick wins” mode to reduce our carbon impact with the “Learn, Focus, Share” spirit.

Thanks to this internal ecosystem and the efforts of Eolos and Naldeo, we have already reduced our CO2 emissions by 1% in Q3 2022, despite our production growth of 2%! Our monthly monitoring has identified several areas for improvement with immediate results. For example, our factory in Poland was consuming 30% of electricity during the two-week annual shutdown, which was illogical. We have reviewed this and have reduced our consumption to 5%! We have also eliminated almost 200 tons of NRPP (Non Recycled Plastic Packaging) in two years. On all sites, and for all types of packaging, the teams are mobilized to achieve the objective of “100% sustainable packaging” by 2024.

These results are very encouraging and would not have been possible without the support of our partners. They really knew how to take a step back, while remaining very concrete and connected to the field. Our teams in the plants are very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the support. The former skepticism about the relevance of integrating service providers in the loop has completely disappeared. Naldeo’s teams are clearly an additional force to really make things happen, which allows it to go faster on some subjects. Our relationship with Naldeo and Eolos is indeed perceived as a partnership! We feel that the consultants are extremely involved, the outcomes are of excellent quality… So we will continue our collaboration next year!

Climate Issues Lost Momentum in the 2024 EU Elections ​

In addition to being sidelined in the current campaign, climate and environmental issues seem particularly prone to political polarization: ambitious measures require trust in scientific institutions, international coordination, and a holistic approach to take into consideration social and economic pain points – otherwise, we can foresee climate policy becoming the scapegoat for other major crises like the rising cost of living or rising unemployment.
