What we want to achieve by 2030

Our 20-year goal for 2030 is to triple the value we create for the environmental footprint made by our operations, products and services. To reach our goal of becoming three times more efficient by 2030, we will have to improve our efficiency by an average of 5 to 6 percent each year. We reached our targets for 2011 to 2015, improving the relationship between the value we create and our environmental footprint by 38 percent overall, and there was an efficiency increase of 43 percent by 2018. On the way to achieving our long-term goal for 2030, we also want to improve our performance further in these areas in the coming years.
To help us achieve this, we have defined new medium-term targets:

On the road to our long-term goal we intend to further improve our performance over the coming years. We have therefore defined our medium-term targets for 2020 and beyond:

Deliver more value...

... at a reduced footprint

* Excluding adhesive products where residue may affect recyclability or pollute recycling streams.

What we have achieved

In 2019, we made significant progress toward achieving these interim targets for 2020 (base year: 2010):
