We are increasingly recognising that the impacts of climate change can have an adverse influence on human health. Companies cannot solve it by themselves –there has to be joint effort between governments, companies and NGOs to get to a healthier planet, and healthier people.

Our commitments

Our approach to Environmental Protection follows the science. Our long-term environmental targets are aligned with science-based targets. They have been approved by the Science-Based Targets Initiative, which means that our targets are in line with the level of decarbonisation required to keep global temperature increase below 2°C.

We know that by investing in new product design, clean technologies, and more efficient processes, we will save money and resources. These investments build resilience in the face of dwindling natural resources, a growing global population, and more frequent and severe climate-related weather events.
