Producing responsibly

Producing in a responsible way

We recognize that our operations have an impact on the environment and we are determined to minimize that impact. We do that by reducing our carbon emissions, improving our energy efficiency, and reducing our waste.

Increase energy efficiency

To reduce our energy consumption and carbon footprint, we have set the target to increase energy-efficiency by at least 20% before 2028. We do this by continuing to invest in energy-saving measures, such as:

  • Inline dosing
  • Solar panels & electric vehicles and switching to LED lighting
  • Modifying production processes to increase energy efficiency
  • Switching to 100% renewable energy contracts

Zero Waste to Landfill

Waste management is critical towards becoming a sustainable organization. That’s why we focus on becoming Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWTL) certified for all our production facilities. To reach that goal, 96% of our waste needs to be diverted through other methods than waste to energy.

We do this for example by:

  • Selecting raw materials that can be recycled
  • Investing in plastic recycling processes
  • Improving waste segregation
  • Building partnerships with waste collectors and recycling companies
