Alfa Laval wants to become carbon neutral by 2030
Alfa Laval, a Swedish-based supplier of products and solutions for heat transfer, separation and fluid handling, has joined the ‘1.5°C Business Playbook’, a spin-off from the ‘Exponential Roadmap’ initiative.
The playbook is a guide for climate strategy and action, and it aims to transform the economy by shifting business focus to zero-carbon solutions.
The initiative is in line with Alfa Laval’s ambition to become carbon neutral within the next ten years.
The ‘1.5°C Business Playbook’ initiative was launched in January 2020 in Davos, Switzerland. It provides tools for companies and organization that want to align with the 1.5°C ambition to halve emissions at least every 10 years.
“If we agree that the world needs to shift to a carbon-neutral economy, then we must do our part in the value chain,” says Tom Erixon, President and CEO of Alfa Laval.
“In Alfa Laval, we have the ambition to become carbon neutral by 2030. Reaching this goal will require partnerships. Therefore, we are pleased to support this initiative which is based on the latest science and focuses on simplicity and speed.”
The company said it would use the playbook in its own strategy work, and when supporting suppliers, customers, and partners in their efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
Alfa Laval’s activities aimed at reducing its impact on the environment include reductions of energy and water consumption as well as carbon emissions.
