Our core goals

We are committed to meet the Paris agreement climate goals by reducing our emissions and achieving net zero by 2050. Our goal is to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions with minimum 30% within 2025. We have defined a recycling rate target of minimum 70% and we will continue to pursue our zero waste ambitions.

This is how we reach our targets

We continuously work to reduce emissions, recycle, and reuse materials. Many of our initiatives are as tangible as they are efficient. Like shifting our heavy vehicle fleet to biogas and implementing operational efficiency measures to reduce the idling time of machinery. Identifying our material topics is key to find the right measures. Among these are of course those directly linked to environmental impacts, but also social and ethical practices.

Health and safety of our employees is our priority number one. We will never succeed with our environmental targets without succeeding with our social ambitions and demands for ethical business practice.
