Non-carbon Factors: Reducing Noise & Waste, Conserving Natural Resources
More than just greenhouse gases
Our Group-wide environmental management system extends beyond CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. We also address other negative environmental impacts and work to develop measures to mitigate their impacts. The impacts include local air pollutants such as mono-nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxides and particulate matter. Noise pollution is another increasingly important environmental concern.
Tackling emissions is just one aspect of sustainability, however. As part of our commitment, we also take a critical look at our use of natural resources such as wood and water in order to optimize their use and avoid waste. We are equally committed to protecting biodiversity and developing waste-reduction and recycling solutions to mitigate the environmental impact of waste disposal.
