Nefab and Metso Outotec partner to lower carbon footprint and supply chain costs

Supplier News

Metso Outotec, in partnership with Nefab, has significantly improved packaging and operations, lowering both the carbon footprint and saving two million euros in the global supply chain through collaboration, teamwork, and continuous improvement.

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Clear scientific evidence and a plethora of alarming trends indicate that it is accelerating beyond expectations and posing a threat to global supply chains. Scientists predict that such climate-related disruptions will only worsen in the coming years as the world warms. There is a clear business case for companies to act now – with a clear vision of our sustainable future in mind. Businesses must prioritise sustainability as a strategic imperative, taking into consideration the environment, safety, and well-being of people and the planet.

Metso Outotec has developed a more comprehensive sustainability strategy, committing to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and aiming for net zero emissions in its own operations by 2030. The company supports its suppliers to determine the carbon footprint of their own operations, suppliers, and products as part of the 1.5-degree journey. Metso Outotec asks for continuous environmental improvement, such as the development of a CO2 emission reduction plan and the setting of their own CO2 reduction targets, specifically, encouraging commitment to the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This is also one of Metso Outotec's official sustainability targets: to have 30% of suppliers by spend to have committed to SBTi by 2030.
