Getinge commits to the Science Based Targets initiative
Getinge is committing to the Science Based Target initiative and to become a net-zero emissions company as a next step in reaching its target to become a CO₂ neutral company by 2025.
Getinge is actively working to minimise its negative environmental footprint, and is committed to achieving the Paris agreement goals of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels, and to become a CO₂ neutral company by 2025.
“The commitment to the Science Based Target initiative is a natural next step for us”, commented Magnus Lundbäck, executive vice president, sustainability, at Getinge. ”This is a good way to increase transparency on our commitment and progress. Getinge is aiming at becoming a CO2 neutral company and has set-up dedicated activities to achieve our goal. For example, switching to renewable energy sources in production and investments in green certifications, but equally important to update the vehicle fleet, travel routines and finding new and smart logistics alternatives.”
Getinge’s Sustainability Programme was re-defined and expanded in 2020, and the company also announced its intention to become a CO₂neutral company by 2025. Compared to previous year, Getinge reported at year-end 2020:
- 14% reductions of CO₂ emissions from production
- 8% increase in renewable energy sources, from 36% to 44%.
- 7% increase of recycled waste in production. In total, 90% of all waste in production was recycled.
