SCA aims to reduce its CO2 emissions by 2020
Apr '17
SCA, a leading global hygiene and forest products company, aims to reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels and purchased electricity and heating by 20 per cent and triple its production of bio-fuels by 2020, according to a company report on sustainability. By the end of 2016, SCA's emissions in relation to the production level had declined by 18.4 per cent.

SCA is upgrading and replacing large parts of its biomass boiler in order to comply with the Industrial Emissions Directive, IED. The upgrade requires a €10m investment and has several advantages. The boiler is expected to be 10 per cent more efficient with new components and new technology. Carbon dioxide emissions are also expected to fall by about 20,000 tons at the same time as operating costs are reduced by €4,000 per year. The biomass boiler upgrade is scheduled to be complete in late 2017.

SCA’s annual sustainability report outlines the group's sustainability efforts during the 2016 calendar year from an environmental, social and economic perspective. Its business operations are based on a sustainable business model with a focus on value creation for people and nature.

"We have a long tradition of working in many areas, such as resource efficiency and innovation. We have reduced the environ-mental impact of all of our product categories and have worked with energy efficiency enhancements as part of our ESAVE programme since 2010. We have now also initiated MSAVE, where we will optimise our raw material use at the same time as we minimise environmental impact and waste, and introduced a new target for production waste," said Magnus Groth, SCA's president and CEO.

SAC strives to deliver better, safe and environmentally sound solutions to its customers. It will continue to improve resource efficiency and environmental performance considering the whole life cycle for new innovations. (RR)
