The Bundesbank is aware of its responsibility to minimise its environmental impact and to make an active, sustainable contribution to protecting the environment and preventing climate change.
The Bundesbank therefore plans to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions from their levels in 2013 and 2014 by 10% by 2020 and by 25% by 2025. Its long-term vision is to become carbon neutral.
This environmental guideline applies to all Bundesbank sites in Germany and bank processes as well as to residential buildings managed by the Bundesbank. It is aimed at the Bundesbank’s staff as well as the suppliers and partners who help them to achieve these goals”
