In this report we looked at the “Dirty Dozen,” the twelve chemical parks with the highest amount of emissions in Germany. These twelve heavyweights were responsible for a total of around 23 million tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2022. That is a full three percent of the overall greenhouse gas emissions in Germany – or 14 percent of emissions from the industrial sector as a whole. Germany reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by two percent between the years 2021 and 2022.1 A climate-friendly conversion of the twelve largest chemical parks would thus make a significant contribution toward climate protection in Germany.
