Sustainability is one of Metso Outotec’s strategic priorities. The company is committed to limiting global warming to 1.5°C, with targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative. As the next step, Metso Outotec now introduced an all-encompassing approach to sustainability, Planet Positive. Covering the environmental, social and financial aspects of sustainability, Planet Positive efforts enforce the company’s purpose to enable sustainable modern life.
Correspondingly, Metso Outotec focuses on minimizing 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.
“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,” says Piia Karhu, SVP, Business Development at Metso Outotec.
