Reducing emissions

Coloplast has made it a strategic priority to reduce emissions and contribute to accelerating climate action

Climate change is accelerating at an unprecedented pace. Acting now is urgent. But reducing emissions is not only good for the climate. It also helps future-proof growth, provides business resilience, boosts investor confidence, and spurs innovation in a market where customers are increasingly demanding sustainable products.

As part of Coloplast’s 2025 corporate strategy, Strive25, we have made it a strategic priority to reduce emissions. But we also look beyond 2025 to ensure long-term climate action.

Science-based targets

Coloplast has set science-based targets for emission reductions in scope 1, 2 and 3 as well as for renewable energy. Our targets are validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi):

  • Coloplast commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 100% by 2030 from a 2018/2019 base year
  • Coloplast also commits to continue annually sourcing 100% renewable electricity through 2025
  • Coloplast further commits to reduce scope 3 GHG emissions by 50% per product manufactured by 2030 from a 2018/2019 base year

Our decarbonisation plan is based on detailed emission mapping of all activities across our value chain. The plan takes several avenues, including phasing out the use of natural gas, converting to electric vehicles, limiting business travel, limiting air freight of our products, and engaging with our suppliers.

We are challenging our behaviours and reinventing how we do business.
