Environmental sustainability for Coor means protecting the environment by actively trying to reduce our own and our customers´ environmental impact as well as optimizing resource utilization.
The overall strategy
The overall ambition within environmental responsibility is to protect the environment by actively trying to reduce our own and our customers’ environmental impact, as well as to reduce the resource utilization – both activites carried out in-house and by suppliers.
In order to achieve this, we aim for improved environmental performance by acting as a green advisor to help clients reduce their environmental impact as well as actively reduce our own environmental impact, i.e. energy usage, waste management, chemical use, carbon emissions from transports and raw materials handling. Our goal is to halve our carbon footprint to 2025.
Activities aimed at reducing the climate impact of our daily operations are being carried out continuously. This is done partly through the services we provide and partly at Coor’s own offices. We have a major responsibility for the impact of our own operations and at the same time a big opportunity to support our customers in their environmental efforts.
Coor committing to Science Based Targets initiative
Coor is now taking an strategically important step and committing to Science Based Targets initiative as part of Coor’s agenda in being an environmentally responsible company.
Handprints complete Coor’s footprint
The ‘Handprints’ concept is a relatively new area in Coor’s sustainability work, and the aim is to clarify Coor’s positive environmental impact to our customers. While a customer’s footprint measures the negative environmental impact, the Handprint tool focuses on the positive impact and is focused on actions and solutions.
Coor’s tool for calculating green house gas emissions
During 2019 Coor started the challenging but important journey to get a complete overview of its climate impact from the company's activities, including raw material consumption.
The Council also manages the international BREEAM In-Use certification scheme, which is aimed at reducing operating costs, energy use and the environmental footprint of existing commercial buildings.
