Addressing climate change together with our suppliers

At Kemira, we have ambitious climate targets and want to work more closely with our suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We’re committed to significantly reducing our GHGs by the end of 2030 in line with the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi). Our longer-term ambition is to become carbon neutral by 2045 for Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions.

With Scope 2 emissions we work to increase the purchased energy from renewable, zero-emission sources. With Scope 3, we are currently developing a quantified near-term target.

Working together to reduce carbon footprint

If you are a Kemira business partner, you can help us better understand and decrease our carbon footprint. Today, we estimate that more than 80% of our emissions are Scope 3 emissions that occur along our value chain. An important step toward achieving our targets is gaining more transparency around this figure so that we can work together to take concrete action.

Product Carbon Footprint Guideline

In order to achieve our targets, Kemira is requesting its direct material suppliers to provide information related to carbon footprint and environmental impact for the products they supply to Kemira. The purpose is to collect, validate, manage and update Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) data over time so that Kemira and its partners can work together in order to reduce the PCF and supplier GHG emissions.

Direct material suppliers receive:

along with a request to share:

  • Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) data sheet
  • Lifecycle Assessment (if available)
  • Environmental Product Declaration (if available)
  • Critical Review Statement (if available)

As we learn more about the GHG emissions along our value chain, we plan on collaborating more closely with key suppliers to reduce overall impact and support the transformation of our sector.


Our climate change target

Kemira supports the ambition of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement. Our long-term ambition is to be carbon neutral by 2045.
