Blue Cap AG has a clear climate protection target and publishes a sustainability report for the first time (German)

* The 2021 sustainable development report complies with the DNK standard The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. ————————————————– ————————- * Climate target: Reduction of CO2 equivalents by 36% by 2030 and 58% by 2035 compared to 2021 * Focus behind fiscal year 2022 for climate protection * The 2021 sustainability report complies with the DNK standard (German Sustainable Development Code) Munich, May 24, 2022 – Blue Cap AG published its first sustainability report under the slogan “Make Things Better”. The report comprehensively presents the issues of sustainable development that are important to the investment firm, explains the goals of ESG and gives the prospect of further ambitions. As part of the activities of the Blue Cap Group for sustainable development, the areas of activity in the field of ecology, climate protection, employees, product portfolio and value creation have already been defined as key points in 2020. In 2021, the holding’s ESG performance and investments were measured for the first time using a comprehensive set of indicators. The basis for this was the set of criteria of the “GRI-SRS of the German Sustainable Development Code”. The data collected in this process was also the starting point for the implementation of the Blue Cap AG goal in the field of climate protection, which is to reduce CO2 equivalent emissions at the investment level by 36% by 2030 and by 58% by 2035. Ulrich Blessing, COO and member of the management board responsible for sustainable development, says: “Within the Blue Cap Group, we take ecological and social responsibility. Last year, we worked intensively on our sustainable development strategy and embedded it in our business model. The publication of our first sustainability report, which goes far beyond regulatory reporting requirements, is a milestone in terms of transparency of related activities. ” Sustainable Further Portfolio Development Sustainability considerations have an impact on Blue Cap, in particular with regard to the potential impact on and on their farms, most of which belong to the manufacturing industries. The operating activities of holding companies therefore have the greatest impact on the environment and society, therefore the emphasis on sustainable development is placed on ways to save resources and increase energy efficiency, as well as on the development of environmentally friendly products. In this respect, con-pearl is a pioneer among Blue Cap AG’s portfolio companies. The manufacturer of double-walled sheets for various applications uses recyclate obtained in its own recycling plants in the production process. In addition, Con-Pearl products can be recycled at the end of their life cycle and turned into new raw materials. Con-pearl thus already serves one of the goals defined in the EU taxonomy towards a circular economy. Uniplast also deals with recycling; in this case, the produced goods were rejected for subsequent use as raw material. Neschen is working intensively on non-toxic alternatives to PVC banners, and Planatol has been producing adhesives from renewable raw materials for many years. In connection with the ambitions of Blue Cap in the field of climate protection, in the analyzed year, possible applications of renewable energy in farms were investigated. The first results of this test show that the solar system will be installed at Planatol in Rohrdorf this year, and another one at con-pearl is already planned. The use of renewable energy there will make a significant contribution to the achievement of Blue Cap AG’s climate goals. Further benefits are less dependence on the electricity market and cost savings by reducing third party purchases. Outlook: emphasis on climate protection This year, the emphasis will be on climate protection – due to the great importance of the topic and in line with the results of the significance analysis. In 2022, a climate protection strategy for the group is to be developed, going beyond the already defined CO2 reduction targets. The sustainability report is published online only to contribute to the sustainable use of resources. It is available on the company’s website: www.blue-cap.de/investor-relations/berichtswelt.
