Reduced environmental footprint

Our vision of becoming climate neutral by 2045 translates into actionable measures across the countries we are in.

  • Climate neutral by 2045

    Climate change is one of the most critical issues threatening the well-being of our planet. We must all take transformative action to slow down climate change. With the ultimate intention to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement, we have set our climate targets and defined our roadmap for reducing our emissions, all aligned with the Science Based Target initiative. We have also decided that Wellspect will go all the way to become climate-neutral by 2045.
