Climate Action


Sofidel’s sustainable approach has been reflected in important actions that have enabled a significant reduction in the environmental impact of production.

In particular, the Sofidel Group is the first Italian manufacturing company to join the WWF Climate Savers programme, aimed at leading companies in the low carbon economy and which has particularly ambitious objectives.

WWF Climate Savers targets for 2020:

Reduce direct CO2 emissions per tonne of paper produced by 23% compared to 2009 levels. This means a reduction of about 900,000 tonnes of CO2, equal to the emissions of a fleet of 10,000 trucks that travel 10,000 km per year for 10 years.

Reduce indirect CO2 emissions caused by third parties in the value chain by 13% compared to 2010 values per tonne of paper produced.

Achieve 8% of energy from renewable sources based on the quantity of fuels consumed annually.

To date, Sofidel has reduced direct CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by 17.9% (reduction of carbon intensity, 2009-2019) thanks to investments in energy efficiency, the use of cogeneration plants and the use of renewable energies (hydroelectric, solar power, biomass).
