Operational efficiency

We strive for CO2 neutrality and a sustainable water footprint, and we follow the zero-waste approach.

We want to become climate-neutral by 2040 and set ourselves a 1.5°C-compatible target by 2030 in the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This target provides a reduction of -52% CO2eq by 2030 in Scopes 1, 2 and 3. Our climate targets are flanked by continuous efficiency improvements and the increasing use of renewable energy. Based on the WWF Water Stewardship project, we will reduce water risks and define concrete water targets by 2030. By 2025, we will recycle 100 % of our production waste materially or energetically. In doing so, we maximise material recycling.

Furthermore, the WEPA Group is certified according to ISO 14001 and ISO 50001. This underpins our commitment to environmental issues in general and our sensitive handling of energy resources.

Actively combating climate change

Our targets and ambitions

SBTi 1.5°C target

Reduction of CO2 emissions by 2030:

-52,5 % CO2eq emissions/t in Scopes 1 & 2*

-52,5 % CO2eq emissions/t in Scope 3*

Target achievement is supported by:

+10 % energy efficiency

Circular economy at WEPA

Our targets and ambitions

  • 100% material or energy recovery of production waste by 2025
  • Maximisation of material recycling and minimisation of energy recycling

Systematic water management

Our targets and ambitions

  • Water risk reduction by 2030
  • The measurable target for this is in development together with the WWF
