Striving for Carbon Neutral Chemistry
The chemical industry in Finland set an ambitious goal in the beginning of year 2019. We are striving for sector's carbon neutrality by 2045. We want to be responsible pioneers and proactive and solution-oriented actors in climate challenge. We are inviting you and other actors to join our efforts!
The chemical industry in Finland strives for the carbon neutrality by both reducing carbon footprint and increasing handprint. In practice this means reducing our own carbon footprint, that is, our greenhouse gas emissions. It also means increasing our handprint through products and solutions that reduce our customer's emissions. New raw materials, new technologies and circular economy will play an important role in this process.
The tool for our development work is linked to the Responsible Care program, which includes indicators for carbon neutrality at industry level. During 2019 we will build up a roadmap for concrete actions to reach the challenging target of carbon neutrality.
