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%
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.
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
