We have implemented Group-wide objectives to reduce its environmental impact, to create safe and secure workplaces and to be a good corporate citizen. The work is conducted in a systematic way and the objectives are linked to UN’s Agenda 2030 and the Global Sustainable Development Goals. Read more about the outcome of the targets in the Sustainability Report.
Energy consumption (GWh/net sales) is to be reduced continuously. The units work within the framework of ISO 14001 and/or ISO 50001 with detailed targets for in-creased energy efficiency.
Emissions of carbon dioxide (tons/net sales) are to be reduced by 20 percent by the end of 2024 compared with the average for 2010–2011. The use of non-fossil energy should increase. This target pertains to carbon dioxide emissions resulting from the use of energy (Scope 1 and 2). There are various types of local targets.
All facilities are to have certified environmental management systems (ISO 14001). Acquired companies must implement the environmental management system within a period of two years.
Hazardous chemicals, raw materials and products
The use of hazardous chemicals must be identified, controlled and, wherever possible, hazardous substances are to be phased out. Read more the environmental aspects of polymer materials.
Health & Safety
The vision is that no accidents will occur at our workplaces. The target is that the number of accidents will be reduced. Systems for reporting near misses are to be in place in all operations.
The Supplier Sustainability Guideline is to be applied in the supply chain.
