The climate crisis presents the urgent challenge and important opportunity to transition to a low carbon economy. Building on two decades of progress, Mondi is accelerating actions to tackle emissions all across our value chain.
One year into delivering against our latest sustainability targets under the Mondi Action Plan 2030 (MAP2030), we are building on our previous science-based targets – approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in 2019 – with an even more ambitious target for our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
This extensive experience in reducing our Scope 1 and 2 emissions supports our roadmap for further reductions and our clear Net-Zero commitment.
This roadmap is supported by planned energy-related investment projects. Building on our success to date, these investments focus on optimising energy and process efficiency and replacing fossil fuel-based energy with renewable sources.
As for Scope 3 emissions, these can be tricky to tackle for businesses in all sectors. This is mostly due to the challenge of tracking and reducing impacts across ‘downstream’ activities, like emissions generated by colleagues commuting and customer activities.
We focus on stakeholder engagement to tackle these emissions. For instance, by selecting suppliers with higher renewable energy use and recycling rates.
GHG emissions are one very important piece of the complicated climate crisis puzzle. In focusing on the areas where Mondi can have the greatest impact, we are also committed to:
