As well as GHGs, our operations produce other emissions, including NOx, dioxides of sulphur (SOx) and VOCs. These emissions arise when we burn fuels in our furnaces to generate heat and are also produced as byproducts in some of the chemical reactions that are involved when we make our products.
All our licensed sites monitor these emissions to ensure that they comply with local regulations. They also set their own absolute emissions reduction targets as part of their local EHS improvement plans.
To keep pushing ourselves, we’ve set a new target to reduce our NOx emissions by 40% by 2030, using 2020 as our baseline data. We will also improve our NOx monitoring processes to help us increase data coverage and accuracy.
