Carbfix's environmental and resources policy

The environmental and resources policy is Carbfix's commitment to continuous environmental reform. It shows us the way and is the basis for good cooperation with stakeholders. The environmental and resource policy is based on Carbfix's values and business strategy.

Carbfix complies with all provisions of laws and regulations that apply to the business.

The environmental and resource policy is set out with the following principles and further elaborated through systematic management and reform of significant environmental aspects:

Climate and climate risk

Carbfix is carbon neutral. Carbfix counteracts and responds to the effects of climate change through its own activities, thus directly affecting the carbon footprint of the population and the economy. Carbfix manages its climate-related risks.

Responsible management of resources

Carbfix is entrusted with great responsibility for the resources it utilizes. The responsibility lies in working according to the ideology of sustainable development and in ensuring sustainable utilization, that is, future generations will have the same opportunities as current generations to utilize the resources and that it can be confirmed that this is the case. Carbfix is committed to seeking successful solutions where public resource use is evaluated in the context of other interests. Carbfix will protect the resources from threats and intrusion, due to the responsibility entrusted to the company.

Benefit of utilities

Access to Carbfix utilities promotes healthy living conditions for people and opportunities for environmentally friendly activities in the community. This positive environmental impact is crucial when decisions are made about the development of power plants and utilities. These decisions are based on the fact that Carbfix makes high demands on quality, delivery security and efficiency, and publishes clear information about the company's operations and future plans.

Impact of emission

Carbfix's operations inevitably lead to the release of materials and energy into the environment. Carbfix takes the utmost care in its operations and aims for near-zero carbon footprint processing and operations. Emissions only occur when the effects on health are negligible and the effects on the environment are acceptable. Carbfix reduces greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions as much as possible and focuses on research and development in order to be able to use the best possible solutions for that purpose.

Effects in society

Carbfix has extensive knowledge and experience in the utilization of geothermal energy, infrastructure development and other aspects of the company's operations. Carbfix imparts knowledge and influences in the value chain, which encourages responsible treatment of the environment, responsible consumer behavior and positive social impact.
