Metso Outotec has introduced a new approach to sustainability that, it says, covers the environmental, social and financial aspects of the topic area.
Its ‘Planet Positive’ efforts enforce the company’s purpose to enable sustainable modern life, the company says, building on Metso Outotec’s commitments to limit global warming to 1.5°C, with targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.
To serve customers’ sustainability needs and to increase the size of its ecological handprint, Metso Outotec focuses on further growing its sustainable offering. The Planet Positive portfolio focuses on the most environmentally efficient technologies – of which there are more than 100 – in the company’s current portfolio, responding to the sustainability requirements of its customers in the aggregates, mining and metals refining industries. The customer requirements relate to energy or water efficiency, reduction of emissions, circularity and safety, it says.
Correspondingly, Metso Outotec focuses on minimising the environmental impact of its own operations and supply chain to diminish its ecological footprint. Already today, Metso Outotec’s handprint is significantly bigger than its footprint, it says.
Piia Karhu, SVP, Business Development at Metso Outotec, said: “We have a wide Planet Positive offering available for our customers and, with strong R&D focus, we continue to strengthen our sustainable offering for aggregates, mining and metals refining industries. We also have high targets for sustainability in our own operations and supply chain. There is a growing demand in our industry for environmentally efficient solutions.”
