MAYR-MELNHOF GROUP COMMITS TO NET ZERO

The Mayr-Melnhof Group has joined the global "Business Ambition for 1.5C" initiative to contribute to limiting global warming to 1.5 degree

As part of this initiative, launched by the UN Global Compact and Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), among others, MM commits to setting science-based targets to seek for net-zero emissions in the whole value chain by 2050 at the latest. MM thus increases the pace of engagement on climate change at the time of major global milestones such as the UN Climate Change Conference COP26.

Peter Oswald, CEO of the MM Group: "MM is a Sustainability Company at the forefront of plastic waste prevention with innovative recyclable packaging made from renewable raw materials. In addition, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate climate change is an integrated and integral part of our corporate strategy. That's why we set ourselves ambitious, science-based targets and take an active part in the Business Ambition for 1.5C initiative to jointly drive a climate-friendly economy."
