The significant environmental impact of our operations is associated with the energy consumed by our facilities. Major part of the total electricity consumption consists of lighting in pharmacies and warehouses, and the maintenance of pharmaceutical storage conditions that meet official requirements.
We have taken various actions to improve energy efficiency. The energy efficiency projects of our large warehouses and offices in Mölnlycke in Sweden and Mankkaa in Finland have created major annual savings in energy consumption, emissions and costs. In 2018, around 90% (85 % previous year) of the electricity used by Oriola comes from renewable sources.
