Policies

Our Vision
Our vision is to truly incorporate sustainable practices into the world of polymers, creating high-quality products with minimal environmental impact, thereby contributing to a brighter future for ourselves and our entire value chain.

Our Mission
Polyram – Group sets its standard for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a responsible manner.
On the organizational level – we commit to minimizing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.
On the product level – we aim to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers and stakeholders with products that are both high in quality and have the lowest possible carbon footprint.

Our strategic plan to achieve our mission involves the following commitments:

  • Manage our production operations to comply with all relevant environmental regulations.
  • Monitor and manage our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including Scopes 1, 2 and 3. This includes public disclosure, setting ambitious reduction targets that align with a 1.5 degree world and building a plan that will allow us to achieve our targets.
  • Increase the use of renewable energy in our operations, striving to reach 100% in the near future.
  • Reduce impacts from our operations with respect to the land, water, air and noise pollution, and apply the principles of continuous improvement to protect the environment and local community.
  • Reduce waste through reuse and recycling and by purchasing recycled and recyclable products and materials where these alternatives are available, economical and suitable.
  • Apply, develop and maintain, appropriate emergency and spill response programs where significant health, safety or environmental hazards may exist.
  • Avoid the unnecessary use of hazardous materials and products, seek substitutions where feasible, and take all reasonable steps to protect human health and the environment when such materials are used, stored and disposed of.
  • Promote the efficient use of materials and resources throughout our facilities: water, electricity, raw materials and other resources, particularly those that are non-renewable.
  • Pre-emptively assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products we intend to introduce and strive to apply the concepts of Design for Environment (DfE).
  • Regularly evaluate the environmental risks and opportunities, in particular climate-related issues, and create mitigation plans and management strategies.
  • Ensure the involvement and cooperation of our higher management and board members in improving our environmental performance, enabling the implementation of this environmental policy, and keeping environmental action items high on the executive agenda.
  • Apply training programs for our staff to raise their awareness of environmental issues and encourage their involvement in improving the group’s performance.
  • Provide Safety data sheets for all our products, while updating and implementing, according to global regulations (e.g. REACH, or other SVHC requirements).
  • Communicate our environmental commitment to our clients, customers, supply chain and the public while encouraging them to support it.
  • Perform LCA and report our products’ carbon footprint to our customers and other stakeholders.

Targets

In order to work toward our long-term sustainability goals, outlined above in our policy, Polyram has formally approved reduction targets that are in line with the Science Based Targets initiative. Although we have not committed through the SBTi program, we used the SBTi calculator to set Scope 1 and 2 targets based on a 1.5⁰C scenario – meaning, targets that align with the goal of no more than 1.5⁰C of global warming by the end of the century. Our long-term targets include a goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

Our calculated science-based targets use 2030 as our target year, and are outlined below:

 

2021 (base year) 2030 (target year) – absolute reduction 42%
Scope 1 396 230
Scope 2 15,495 8,987
Scope 1+2 15,891 9,217

 

In addition to long-term emissions targets, we set annual targets for resource reduction. Our 2022 targets were to reduce our electricity consumption and the amount of waste sent to landfill per ton of production, both by 5% relative to 2021. Two of our production sites achieved their waste targets, and three sites achieved their electricity reduction targets. When looking at data for all of Polyram’s production sites combined, the total relative electricity consumption (kWh / ton of product) and relative waste production (kg / ton of product) were both more than 5% lower in 2022 than in 2021, representing an overall achievement of our 2022 targets.

 

2021  2022 Target 2022 Actual
Electricity (kWh/ton) 0.51 0.48 0.47
Waste (kg/ton) 28.62 27.18 25.34

 

Sustainability Report

We are constantly striving to reduce the environmental impacts of our products, and of our
organization as a whole. In the last few years, Polyram began an extensive Carbon
Management campaign, spearheaded by our COO. The campaign, which marks an important
step toward addressing climate risks, included a market review, data collection, and a first time GHG calculation for the company, which was verified by a third party and will be used as
a baseline for future emissions targets. We received a B on our 2021 CDP report, the first
submission for Polyram, and one of many stages within this Carbon Management program.
The CDP disclosure and this Environmental Report are examples of ways in which we are
working to improve our transparency. This report, the first of its kind for Polyram, summarizes
the key components of our global environmental activities in 2021 and 2022, and outlines our
commitment to further expanding such activities in the coming years. Moving forward, we
hope to expand this report to include all aspects of an Environmental, Social and Governance
(ESG) report.
