CO2

We are working on reducing CO2 emissions, not just on paper.

A stringent decarbonisation strategy is crucial for all companies and communities, so Fedrigoni has set itself even more demanding goals to ensure a significant reduction in emissions through less use of fossil fuels by 2030.

We aim to achieve full carbon neutrality by 2050.

Our 2021 achievements

With these actions we directly contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Approval by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) of our goal to reduce CO₂ emissions (Scope 1+2) by 2030.

325 kt

of absolute Co2 emissions

67%

of Paper production sites are ISO 14001 certified.

77%

of Self-Adhesive sites are ISO 14001 certified.

Emissions Progress:

– 30% of absolute CO₂ emissions, Scope 1 + 2, from ~330 kt to ~240 kt (compared to base year 2019)


 

Calculation of the Group Carbon Footprint

We aim at ensuring full transparency of our value chain, from the selection of suppliers to transport and distribution; this is why we have undertaken a commitment to calculate the life cycles of our products and reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions, in line with the SBT (Science-Based Targets) methodology.

Energy from efficient, renewable sources

Energy, along with pulp and water, are the key elements in our production processes; we therefore seek sustainable procurement policies for our energy sources, using renewable sources and self-generated energy as much as possible.

Streamlining existing plants

Streamlining the operation and performance of our cogeneration plants, making improvements to our steam and refining plants, installing new thickeners and replacing light bulbs in our plants with energy-saving versions are measures we have implemented to improve efficiency in many of our plants to ensure we are all heading in the same direction and no-one is left behind.
