Diab says that it has successfully reduced its carbon footprint by 46% between 2016 and 2021, or from 11 kg CO2e/kg of material produced to 5.9 kg CO2e/kg.

The company achieved the reduction by making changes in material, reducing waste, making more efficient use of waste generated, and changing production methodologies and energy sources.

“Diab is a great example of a company where numerous long-term initiatives make a difference over time,” said Joakim Twetman, chairman of the board at Diab. “There is no silver bullet for carbon emissions, but many smaller initiatives have a major impact over time.”

Diab’s carbon reduction includes the company’s full carbon footprint, including internal activities, energy, internal transport, external activities, sourced raw materials and product use.
