A circular economy and an inclusive society

In BEWI, we have set ambitious goals for our sustainability work. This strategy covers our entire value chain with ambitions leading towards 2030.
Mission

As a European provider of packaging, components and insulation solutions we are dedicated to creating value to our customers, the society and our owners.

Our strategic approach to sustainability is based on three pillars:

Becoming circular

To be a circular business built on renewable energy.

Actively engage in partnerships

Being an active and responsible partner so that we together with our stakeholders can achieve a circular economy, operating within our planet’s planetary boundaries.

Contribute to an inclusive society

Create a positive social impact for everyone across the BEWI value chain.

Sustainable procurements

BEWI has a significant annual purchasing volume and we see this as an opportunity to drive change and to increase the emphasis on sustainability in our value chain. Though setting clear goals and actively collaborate with our suppliers, we work to ensure that our procurements reflect our goals linked to resource efficiency, circularity and social responsibility.
/

Distribution of products

Transport is a huge part of the value chain and accounts for much of the CO2 emissions. We are constantly working to reduce our transport by creating cleaner and leaner logistics. We will work to optimize our routes, fill vehicles more efficiently and work with logistic providers to demand more non-fossil alternatives.
/

Collection and recycling

BEWI is committed to becoming circular. We are continuously working to increase our collection capacity through investments and to collaborate with our customers and partners to secure that our products are sorted out for collection and material recycling.
/

Inclusive society

We will stand up for our values and beliefs, advocating for change and playing an active role to support it. This means that we will actively engage with our employees, partners, and neighbours to create a positive impact on livelihoods throughout our value chain.

Sustainability in BEWI

Planetary boundaries and the circular economy

Our work with sustainability recognises our planets nine planetary boundaries. We therefore support the restructuring of UN`s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from a linear list to a figure where the SDGs related to our planet’s planetary boundaries set the basic framework for achieving the other SDG’s.

For BEWI, the circular economy offers a framework for how we can move towards an economy that operates and thrives within our planetary boundaries. For us, this means to utilise resources as optimally as possible, focusing on reducing our consumption, and to keep the value of products and materials in the loop as high as possible for as long as possible. This, together with the transition to renewable energy, respect for biodiversity, and social inclusion will ensure a more sustainable use of resources while contributing to value creation and economic growth. For BEWI, working towards an circular economy means working on many SDGs, as part of our business model.
