As the transition to a net zero carbon economy accelerates, we continue to challenge ourselves to reduce impacts, mitigate risks, and harness growth opportunities related to climate change. Here you can see the targets we have set, and our current progress towards our milestones.

Our Targets
Timeline targets

“Our goal is to continuously improve our performance, with the ambition to mitigate climate change, reach zero injuries, waste, and harm focusing  people safetyprocess safety and product safety. By setting ambitious goals, we aspire to be a net zero organization by 2050. We set new 2030 targets to
reduce absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40%, integrating net zero and climate change considerations into our strategy and planning, improving efficiency in our operations and providing solutions that help do the same. Additional targets include reducing total waste intensity by 10% and reducing water consumption intensity by 10% by 2030.

Progress towards targets - highlights:

Eco-efficiency tracking in place at 100% of manufacturing sites.

95% of sites leverages some renewable energy source

~83% of electricity is low carbon based

~22% of organic raw materials are bio-based

We have achieved Carbon Neutrality at Five Manufacturing Sites

This achievement supports the company’s sustainability agenda, ‘Commitment to a Sustainable Future’:

Our plan to achieve these goals includes:

In addition, across all scopes: Exploring collaboration opportunities with our customers and suppliers as well as evaluating and deploying new innovation technologies such as those in the ICOS Capital Fund III, where we are a strategic investor.

The realization of our goals on the pathway towards net-zero relies on a number of considerations, including site evaluations, increased renewable energy, the rate of innovation, value-chain developments and regulatory requirements. Our Global Carbon Business Leader, Eduardo Nardinelli, is developing and executing a global business strategy for achieving our carbon emission reduction targets and is leading our carbon emission reduction initiatives.
