Sweden’s Höganäs AB has released its 2021 sustainability report, highlighting progress in its ambitions to reach net-zero targets. During the year, the company initiated its Climate Roadmap, an in-depth plan on how to achieve its objective to take sustainability leadership. Actions for 2022 to 2024 were reported to have been integrated into local business plans to coordinate these different activities.

“We have identified 170 different emission reduction actions that is mitigating almost 90% of our direct and indirect emissions by 2040,” stated Catharina Nordeman, Group Sustainability Director. “In 2022, we will create an action plan for upstream value chain emissions and look further into opportunities to accelerate our transition.”

Key figures include:

  • 57% of electricity used was from fossil-free or partly fossil-free sources
  • 48% of the raw materials used were secondary materials
  • 75% of process residuals were reused

The company was also said to have delivered 66,000 MWh of surplus heat to district heating and municipal treatment plants in the cities of Höganäs and Halmstad. This replaced the equivalent of approximately 13,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions when compared to the use of natural gas.

The full report, available here, features information including governance, strategy, Höganäs’s environmental impact and what actions have been taken in each area.
