Quantifying and reporting our environmental impact

To accurately gauge the environmental impact of production and products involves a large network of industrial activities, interconnected by material and energy flows.

To quantity the environmental impact from our products and to pinpoint focus areas, we completed a Cradle-to-Gate Carbon Footprint Assessment of our Supply Chain for Denmark in 2013, which to the best of our knowledge, was the first fully documented and externally reviewed ISO14040/44 compliant report for spunmelt nonwoven products.

Using detailed data on the individual contributions to the environmental impact from nonwoven production from the Cradle-to-Gate Carbon Footprint Assessment, we are able to target our improvement efforts for maximum impact.
