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 2022 achievements
With these actions we directly contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 8, 13 and 15
Approval by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) of our goal to reduce CO₂ emissions (Scope 1+2 and scope 3).
of absolute CO₂ emissions (Scope 1 and 2)
of the Italian Paper sites are ISO 14001 certified.
of the Self-Adhesive production sites are ISO 14001 certified.
– 30% of absolute CO₂ emissions, Scope 1 + 2
90% of suppliers by spend, covering purchased good and services and capital goods, with science-based targets
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 carbon footprint of our products along their whole life cycle, in line with the GHG protocol.
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.
In 2022, all European plants purchased renewable electric energy and we have been pushing to find alternative sources for gradually replacing natural gas in our cogenerators.
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.
