CLR announces that with the integration into the Berlin power grid, the commissioning of its third and final major photovoltaic system is now complete. Thanks to the energy generated from the three systems on CLRs production and administration buildings, CLR will be able to produce approximately 30-40% of its electrical energy consumption on average, and up to 50% on peak days. Any excess energy generated that is not used is fed into the Berlin power grid, contributing to the sustainable local energy supply. The energy CLR feeds into the grid each year is equivalent to the annual consumption of 151 households, a school or 5.3 million LED streetlights.

CLR has set itself an ambitious science-based emission reduction target within the framework of the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). CLR commits itself to significantly reducing its absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 23% by 2030 compared to the base year2021 and to measuring and reducing its Scope 3 emissions.

The commissioning of the new photovoltaic system marks a milestone in CLRs efforts to reduce its environmental impact and contribute to the fight against climate change. This progress reflects CLRs commitments outlined in its Acting Together program.
