Environmental impacts

Itella’s environmental effects are mainly related to greenhouse gas emissions. Itella has made a commitment to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 30% by 2020, in relation to net sales (compared to 2007). This target and the related reporting system concern all of Itella’s business operations in all countries of operation.

In 2013, Itella focused particularly on the energy efficiency of the premises. Itella integrated measures related to the use of buildings into daily ways of working and worked to ensure that the company would maintain the achieved level and further improve efficiency in order to produce savings. In the future, Itella will focus primarily on lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning in promoting more efficient use of electricity. Electricity use will also be monitored actively.

In addition, Itella’s goal is to monitor the development of energy-efficient technologies more closely. New technologies will be deployed as much as possible. Itella’s goal is to cut our electricity consumption by 2% and heat consumption by 3% annually until 2015.

With the annual report for 2013, Itella will publish a corporate responsibility report that includes more detailed information on environmental responsibility.
