Environment & Climate

Our focus is increasingly on how we can provide our customers with high quality products that also help them reduce their climate impact and energy consumption.

Nynas strives to continuously improve its energy efficiency and reduce climate impact in production, operations and transportation through various programmes. We maintain rigorous process safety measures in our production facilities to minimise the risk for accidents or spills. To reduce any impact on the surrounding environment, Nynas has well established waste management and treatment operations as well as ongoing remediation activities related to soil and water issues.

Ambition 2030 and 2050

We aim to lower our environmental impact and emissions to air, sea and land, and will monitor all emissions from our operations based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. In 2022, we defined scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions reduction targets for 2030 and 2050 with the aim to become climate-neutral by 2050*. Our reduction target for 2030 is to lower our Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 50% versus our base year 2017 (including emissions at Harburg). In 2023 we started to map Nynas scope 3 emissions with the initial objective to identify the significant categories of scope 3 emissions in Nynas value chain.

Green house gas reduction

We have ongoing programmes to improve the energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions from our operations and have formulated a roadmap for our journey towards 2050.

* In accordance with the EU aim to have an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions

Nynas is committed to lowering its own environmental impact and the aim is to become climate-neutral by 2050.
