Bona® released its 2022 Sustainability Report, which highlights the company’s sustainability vision to “lead the sustainability transformation of our industry, caring for people and planet.”
“Bona’s sustainability journey began with our founders and over the years we have reached several notable milestones in our efforts to drive sustainability within the industry,” said Magnus Andersson, CEO of Bona. “With our new vision, we take another step on our journey by reinforcing Bona’s business model of encouraging floor renovation and maintenance over replacement, which saves energy consumption and reduces the climate footprint.”
This year, Bona established sub-visions that align with each pillar of the company’s sustainability approach:
- Home: Reducing our environmental impact, being carbon neutral by 2040
- Health: Business growth through healthy and innovative choices
- Humanity: Fair and equal opportunities for our employees and supply chain
The Bona Sustainability Report 2022 is the result of efforts made by Bona to re-shape its sustainability work in response to the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).
Andersson continued, “We welcome the ambitious developments by the EU to increase transparency and accountability within corporate sustainability. While it will take time to address the demands by the CSRD, this year’s report is a step in the right direction. By raising the standard for how we operate and present our performance, I believe we send an important signal that we are making progress.”
Highlights of the 2022 Sustainability Report include the addition of Position Green to better understand and manage the company’s sustainability progress, a new corporate partnership with WeForest to help restore forests in Brazil, and increased energy efficiencies at its sites in Germany and Sweden. The report also profiles the 2022 E.P.A. Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award and a drive to increase post-consumer recycled plastic in its packaging.
