We’re working to embed sustainability into everything we do.
We take a sensible approach to sustainability that runs through our products, innovation and daily operations. And this translates into cost-effective sustainable products with lower emissions for our customers.
Our Vision 2030 goals are a roadmap to help us reduce the environmental impact of our products substantially, as well as protect human rights and the environment in our supply chain and increase diversity in our workforce.
Sustainability has to be on the agenda at the highest level, so we’ve put dedicated governance in place. We’ve also set targets, including net zero by 2050, and we’re making good progress towards them.
For example, by obtaining 90% of our electricity from renewable sources we decreased our total CO2 emissions by 34% in 2021, and completely ended coal use in our operations this year.
Sustainability is a core part of who we are and what we do. We are constantly measuring the progress we are making upstream, downstream, and in our operations and product development.Find out more
