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 and ventilation in warehouse and office facilities and pharmacies in Sweden, 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 2019, 92% (90% previous year) of our total electricity consumption was renewable.
