Kronhe, a leading global manufacturer of industrial measurement and metering technology, has joined the net-zero focused Irena-powered Alliance for Industry Decarbonization as part of its efforts to drive industrial decarbonisation alongside its industry peers.
Founded in 1921 at Duisburg, Germany, Kronhe has over the years grown into a global leader in manufacture and provision of process instrumentation, measurement solutions and services in many industries.
The 102 year old family-owned German company has been making positive and consistent sustainable business decisions for the last few years and joining this alliance is a logical progression as the group can use its might in the supply chain and through R&D prowess to develop better ways to operate around the world and cut carbon emissions.
"We are proud to be continuing our journey towards net zero by 2045 or sooner alongside a strong alliance of solid industry players, brought together by the influential global entity Irena," said Frank Janssens, the Vice President of Kronhe Middle East and Africa.
"As part of the UAE’s Year of Sustainability and with our focus very much on driving action in the build-up and aftermath of COP28, our efforts and actions in the alliance are sure to move us closer to carbon neutrality goals around the world. All of us are pulling in the same direction for a better tomorrow," he stated.
"The continued participation of leading industries in groups like this can benefit business opportunities for green industrialization and highlight the importance of collaboration in developing strategies and sharing best practices to cut industry emissions," he added.
According to Kronhe, about 25% of global GDP is produced by the industrial sector, which also emits around 28% of GHG emissions.
Partnerships based on dialogue and actions are crucial for industrial stakeholders to best address the challenges and opportunities of a clean energy transition.
A multi-stakeholder platform enabling such exchanges and collaboration can accelerate global climate action, it stated.
Joining up alongside other industry leaders such as Siemens Energy, Taqa, Technip Energies, EDF Renewables, Tata Steel and Repsol ensures a strong guiding hand in taking positive action, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
