Sustainability agenda
Our sustainability agenda

Our strategy identifies sustainability as a one of our top priorities. In line with the wider strategy work, we have developed a more comprehensive sustainability strategy. We are striving for a net positive impact on the planet and we are committed to limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. 

Our sustainability agenda consists of focus areas for our handprint and footprint. Handprint is the positive impact we make on the environment and people through our offering. With our sustainable offering we help our customers improve their environmental efficiency, productivity and reduce risks. 

Our footprint is the impact of our own operations on the environment. We are aiming for our footprint to be as small and harmless as possible.

Our climate impact

Metso Outotec has set Science Based Targets (SBT) in alignment with limiting global warming to 1.5°C. This will be implemented through our selected products and solutions,  and by reducing CO2 emissions of our manufacturing, logistics and suppliers . Our target is to reduce CO2 emissions by 50% in our own production by 2030, 20% in logistics by 2025 and 20% in product use phase by 2025. We are also targeting that 30% of the supplier spend by the end of 2025 is with partners who have set a SBT emission target.  Baseline year for all the target is 2019.

In addition to science-based targets, our annual target starting in 2021, is that over 90% of our R&D projects has to set   a target related to energy, emissions or water.  We are also targeting to offset all our flights emissions by 2022 and to do supportive actions in all our locations around the world.
