Gränges delivered good progress towards the ambitious 2025 sustainability targets and as a result has upgraded some of the sustainability targets this year.
ORMOND BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, June 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — JD Technologies Global, LLC is proud to announce that their principal, Gränges, has achieved good progress on sustainability. Highlights in 2021 include a reduction in the company’s total carbon emissions, an increased aluminum recycling, having more products with third-party verified sustainability information, and emitting the company’s first Sustainability-Linked Bond. Further, Gränges Finspång achieved the company’s first certification against the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative (ASI) Chain of Custody Standard, closely followed by Gränges Shanghai being certified in the beginning of 2022. The certification verifies that the company’s aluminum products are responsibly and sustainably produced and provides assurance to customers and other business partners that Gränges is committed to meeting their increased sustainability requirements and demand for sustainable aluminum.
Key achievements in 2021
– Reduced the total carbon emissions intensity (scope 1+2+3)* by 19 per cent compared to baseline 2017**.
– Carbon intensity scope (1+2) decreased by 8 per cent as a result of a higher share of renewable energy combined with a lower energy intensity.
– Carbon intensity (scope 3) decreased by 20 percent driven by a higher share of sourced aluminum scrap.
– Increased the share of sourced aluminum scrap to 28.5 percent. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the share increased by 2.5 percentage points to 25.0 per cent (22.5).
– Increased the share of products with third-party verified sustainability information to 35 per cent, which corresponds to 43 per cent (19) excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy.
– Reached 100 per cent participation in the group-wide anti-corruption and Code of Conduct trainings.
– Achieved certification in accordance with the ASI Chain of Custody Standard in Gränges Finspång.
