Orthex Corporation, Press release, 8 February 2024 at 2.15 p.m. EET
Orthex’s climate work was recognised with a Leadership level A- score in the global CDP rating for the first time.
The CDP’s annual program is a globally recognised benchmark that ranks the efforts of investors, companies, cities, states, and regions to manage their environmental impact. Companies receiving a Leadership level score must demonstrate both awareness of their impact on the environment, and commitment to reduce emissions to keep global warming below 1.5°C in accordance with the Paris Agreement.
“We have an ambitious target to reduce our emissions, and we work systematically to reach this target. We are very pleased that our hard work is recognised in the CDP rating as well. This encourages us on our journey towards carbon neutral production by 2030,” says Hanna Kukkonen, Orthex’s Chief Marketing and Sustainability Officer.
