Climate change and decarbonisation have rapidly climbed to the top of the agenda for business in recent years, and the related challenges in resource efficiency, water stewardship and waste management are increasingly significant for companies including Infineum.
We take a pro-active approach to environmental sustainability, driving resource efficiencies and decarbonisation in alignment with our SDG commitments.
Action to protect the environment reflects our commitments to UN Sustainable Development Goals on Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12) and Climate Action (SDG 13), and also makes an important contribution to our work on Human Health and Wellbeing (SDG 3).
Reduce our impact on the climate and resources in our operations
By increasing energy efficiency, using renewable energy and optimising the utilisation of raw materials, we are lowering GHG emissions across our own global operations. We are evolving our approach to emissions reduction in line with climate science.
in carbon emissions per ton of product compared to 2018.
Action on protecting the environment includes:
- Decarbonising our operations, with a target to reduce our operational carbon emissions by more than 20% per tonne of product by 2025.
- Reducing our use of water and raw materials and minimising waste.
- Focusing on reducing the impact of our products in use, with a target to integrate sustainability criteria in 100% of our product developments by 2025.
