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.
Within our own operations we have a long legacy of working to reduce our climate impact, improve our energy efficiency and be a responsible neighbour by taking corrective actions on legacy issues, such as there mediation of contaminated soil and water.
Nynas strives to continuously improve its energy efficiency and reduce climate impact in production, operations and transportation through various programmes. We will monitor and make improvements on applicable environmental aspects and communicate clear targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Reducing climate impact
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. We have defined scope 1 and 2 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 emissions by 50,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalents versus our base year 2017 (excluding emissions at Harburg).
We have ongoing programmes to improve the energy efficiency at all our sites. Within all of our operations we are introducing options for energy sources with a lower climate impact, such as transitioning to natural gas from oil.
* In accordance with the EU aim to have an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions
