Focus Area - 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.

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. 

Environmental programmes 

We have managed to dramatically reduce the amount of steam lost since 2010 in Nynäshamn. The steam savings have reduced the amount of annual energy lost from 27,762 MWh in 2010 to just 2,160 MWh in 2021.

We have ongoing programmes to improve our energy efficiency. Our Harburg refinery, for example, began a five-year programme in 2021 with a target to reduce energy consumption by 25 per cent by 2025.
