Despite the prolonged pandemic, Orion succeeded in securing the availability of medicines and upping its climate commitments.
Besides its own operations, sustainability work is increasingly focused on Orion’s entire value chain, according to Orion’s Sustainability Report 2021.
The exceptional circumstances caused by the pandemic did not undermine Orion’s ambitions to meet its sustainability commitments. For example, Orion was poised to achieve its earlier reduction target for carbon dioxide emissions, which was set at 75 percent by 2025. However, Orion decided to up the ante in 2021 and raised its targets even further.
Orion is now aiming at carbon neutrality of its own operations by 2030.
An important investment in the area of energy efficiency in 2021 was the local heating plant completed at Turku, which utilises the waste heat from production in the heating and cooling of production facilities.
