We are striving to find ways to prevent waste generation by recycling and reusing materials and components. Majority (48%) of the produced waste is metals, which are recycled and reused. Only 9% of the waste produced in 2017 was classified as hazardous waste.
We offer recycling stations in our facilities as well as collection points for hazardous waste for employees’ personal use. In 2017 we started to collect bio waste in our Porvoo site in Finland.
We have set ourselves a goal of 0% landfill waste and have gained this target in majority of our locations. In 2017 still around 8% of the waste ended up to landfill. In some of our countries waste collection and management is still under development and therefore waste ending in landfills is inevitable.
