Sustainable solutions for the future
What are we doing to be a more responsible company?
We're committed to reducing our impact on the planet and delivering more sustainable products and solutions to our customers. But we can only do this if sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. That's why we've integrated sustainability into every area of our business - for the benefit of our clients, shareholders, employees and the world around us.
We believe the only way to grow is by developing sustainable, innovative solutions that benefit our customers.
Eco-premium solutions are competitively-priced, high-end products that have more environmental benefits than their mainstream equivalents. This eco-efficiency can happen at any stage of a product’s lifetime – from the extraction of natural resources to manufacturing, end-use and final waste management.
As much as 18 percent of our revenue comes from eco-premium products. Our aim is to increase this figure to 35 percent by 2015.
