Currently, the greatest leverage Festo, as a component supplier, has in terms of climate protection is the reduction of scope 3 emissions – specifically in the use of the products sold by the customer (see pages 46–47, GHG Protocol, scope 3, category 11). This requires specialists with the expertise to optimise the entire pneumatic system. Festo Energy Saving Services, a customised service programme in accordance with DIN EN ISO 11011 (compressed air energy efficiency audit), are based on this holistic approach. This serves to identify and best exploit compressed air savings potential at the customer’s premises, which also optimises their entire energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001. Documented savings potential The focus is on the Festo Compressed Air Energy Efficiency Audit, which is available around the globe and is carried out by our specialised auditors. In 2021, 149 projects were carried out worldwide with a calculated CO2 savings potential totalling 7,438 tonnes. This amount is comprised of the leakages determined by means of concrete leakage detection and the total potential savings estimated by the Compressed Air Energy Efficiency Audit for the first time. We have been able to demonstrate a CO2 savings potential of 50,468 tonnes of CO2 in customer projects since 2012. GRI 302-5 Festo Compressed Air Energy Efficiency Audit With the audit, the customer immediately recognises weak points and knows which measures will pay off for their compressed air system. Our auditors examine both the compressed air generation (1) and the compressed air preparation and quality (2), as well as the compressed air network (3). They also carry out exemplary leakage detection on selected pneumatic systems, investigate potential savings and check pneumatic efficiency (4). To round off the audit offer, a concept for a monitoring system can be prepared for the client as required (5). Finally, a detailed report is produced with precise documentation of the data and priority-weighted recommendations for action to optimise compressed air energy efficiency and its savings potential. The documentation also includes the CO2 emission values of the compressed air system that many companies require for inclusion in their sustainability report, for example in accordance with GRI or GHG, and that they use in their climate strategies. Festo Energy Saving Services portal In 2021, the web-based Festo Energy Saving Services portal was introduced, where the results of the Festo Compressed Air Energy Efficiency audit can be documented and tracked online. This digital solution is an important step towards faster implementation of compressed air energy efficiency measures and their monitoring in real time. The faster optimisation measures, such as the reduction of pressure drops or the elimination of located leaks, are initiated by the customer, the more CO2 emissions and compressed air costs can be saved in total. 7.
