In addition, in 2021 Valmet launched its Climate Program with ambitious CO2 reduction targets by 2030.
“Valmet has consistently implemented its Sustainability360º Agenda which has been the backbone for the company’s sustainability work over the years. The agenda takes a comprehensive approach to environmental, social and governance aspects and all the material topics have concrete targets and action plans integrated into our annual planning process. We are also strongly focusing on and contributing to a carbon neutral future. In our Climate Program – Forward to a carbon neutral future – we have set ambitious targets and concrete action plans for the entire value chain and aim at enabling fully carbon neutral production processes to our customers by 2030”, says Anu Salonsaari-Posti, SVP, Marketing, communications, sustainability and corporate relations at Valmet.
