Unisto has been taking responsibility for the environmental impact of its operations for many years, with active environmental management in line with the Green Footprint strategy.
Now we are ready to take it one step further. We are pleased to announce that Unisto has been certified for the newly introduced CO2-management. Swiss Climate has awarded us with the prestigious label "CO2 OPTIMISED". This certificate confirms that our company is comprehensively addressing its own greenhouse gases by continuously measuring our CO2-emissions, defining targets, opportunities and risks, and proactively pursuing measures.
In order to achieve the golden "certified CO2 NEUTRAL" label for our Horn (CH) site next year, we are planning a compensation strategy together with Swiss Climate.
With our long-term vision of reducing our CO2-emissions by 40% by 2030 compared to the base year 2021, we want to actively contribute to limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Consequently, the ambition level of the climate target of Unisto AG is aligned with the Paris Climate Agreement. We are therefore consciously pushing the use of bio and recycled materials and thus continuously reducing petroleum-based material consumption.
As a consequence, Unisto is always interested in new, alternative material solutions and we will therefore continue to invest in research and development.
