Ahlstrom-Munksjö recently launched an ambitious sustainability strategy with equally ambitious targets. With a redefined purpose to Purify and Protect, with Every Fiber, for a Sustainable World. This is a bigger and bolder vision for our company than we have had in the past. We want to be a key enabler for our customers, suppliers, and partners by innovating and advocating new, sustainable solutions.
Our employees will be key to driving and succeeding with positive change and are a natural priority for us as a company. We will continue our strong legacy and focus on health and safety, including mental well-being. We are continuously expanding our work within diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint at least in line with Science Based Targets (i.e., in line with the Paris agreement) and aim to have net zero emissions by 2050 the latest. We will increase product lifecycle transparency and improve product end-of-life features, to meet and surpass increasing circularity demands.
Building on a foundation of strong business ethics, we work to achieve lasting profitability through a robust innovation platform to develop new sustainable fiber-based solutions.
The Ahlstrom-Munksjö production sites adhere to a range of internationally recognized, third-party audited sustainability standards to ensure compliance with our ambitious strategy.
