Sustainability policy and targets
The SCA sustainability policy, together with the sustainability targets, forms the basis for the operational work with environmental and social issues within the group as a whole, and for the business groups. The policy defines SCA:s commitment to positive environmental, social and economic performance.
The sustainability targets are used to steer and follow up the work within the sustainability field, and are reported in the annual sustainability report.
SCA focuses on four sustainability targets, relating to environmental and social issues:
- Reduced carbon dioxide emissions
Through to 2020, emissions from fossil fuels and from the purchase of electricity and heating will be reduced by 20%, using 2005 as a base year. This quantified target was established 2008.
- Responsible use of wood raw material
No fresh fibre-based material used in production shall derive from controversial sources.
- Improved water usage
SCA established its target for water usage in 2005: to by 2010 reduce consumption by 15% and reduce organic content in wastewater by 30%
- Code of Conduct compliance
SCA’s Code of Conduct applies to all employees at all locations worldwide.
Development and follow-up of targets
Proposals for sustainability targets are developed within the SCA environmental committee and the corporate social responsibility committee. They are developed based on demands and expectations of stakeholders, combined with an assessment of which areas that will be decisive for the SCA group´s long-term competitiveness.
Data for monitoring and follow up of the sustainability targets are collected via the RMS system (also described at this website), and via financial and human resource reporting systems.
SCA:s sustainability policy and further information about targets; including follow-up and progress, are available in the sustainability part of the SCA corporate website:
