Our sustainability commitments and memberships
Metso Outotec aligns with international initiatives, standards and sustainability recognitions
Our strategy identifies sustainability as a top priority. We have developed a more diverse sustainability strategy. We are striving for net zero and 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. With our sustainable offering, our customers can improve their environmental efficiency, productivity and reduce risks.
It is also important we take care of our own footprint, meaning our environmental impact when producing goods and services and delivering them to the customer. We aim to minimize any harmful impacts to the environment, people in our own operations, logistics and supply chain.
Our purpose is to “Enable sustainable modern life.” A large part of our sustainability focus is on climate change and limiting global warming to 1.5°degrees. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges in sustaining our current way of life. It is a global challenge – one that Metso Outotec can play a significant role in addressing and impacting.
Central to our sustainability efforts is our Planet Positive portfolio. These specific products and services - which already consists of over 100 products - address our customers’ sustainability needs by being demonstrably more energy or water efficient than the industry benchmark.
This further helps our customers cut their CO2 emissions, as well as achieve any other sustainability priorities such as managing pollution. Our Planet Positive services also improve customers’ processes, and can allow them to achieve similar benefits.
