Gothenburg, SKF’s third net zero factory
In 2020, we announced our commitment for our sites to become net zero in 2030. From 2022, SKF’s manufacturing site in Gothenburg, Sweden has reached net zero status. This has been achieved through a number of actions to optimize energy efficiency and, at the same time, switching to 100% renewable energy sources. Investments in heat recovery and efficiency have led to a lower overall energy demand and the factory now runs on 100% renewable electricity and used biogas instead of fossil-based gas. Even the emissions associated with the in-factory transport of materials have been eliminated by switching to full electric vehicles that runs on renewable electricity.
