New Medium Term Goal for 2020
Lonza’s executive management decided in the third quarter of 2015 on the 2016-2020 medium-term sustainability goals.
The safety goal was set with a 40 % reduction on the existing 2015 goal of (LTIFR=1.0).
A material change has been adopted in conjunction with the environmental goals, which are now intensity goals relative to the economic performance expressed in sales. This decision was made on the basis of the challenges that lie ahead in terms of pressure on the climate change front and the diversity of the Lonza portfolio while at the same time, it attempts to partly neutralize potential changes in the business-asset portfolio.
The goals were set with an intensity reduction of 10 % on the achieved 2015 intensities. These newly defined goals include direct (scope-1) and indirect (scope-2) greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), established lead emission parameters, as well as energy and water consumption. They reflect our commitment to develop Lonza sustainably for the benefit of the environment and our customers in the widest sense.
Evaluation of Five-Year Cycle 2010 - 2015
At the end of the five-year cycle 2010–2015, we must note to have partly missed our primary safety goal. Whereas the lost-time frequency goal could not be met, we succeeded with the severity goal. On the environmental side, we were able to meet the air-impurities goal; however, we did not reach the other goals. These results have to be evaluated in light of the fact that the original absolute emissions goals that were set in 2010 were not modified to account for the acquisition of Arch Chemicals in late 2011.
Safety (2010 - 2015)
Environment (2010 - 2015)
LTIFR = Accident frequency (lost-time injury frequency rate as numbers of accidents per 1 million hours worked)
LTISR = Accident severity (lost-time injury severity rate as numbers of hours lost by accidents per 1 million hours worked)
CO2e = Carbon dioxide equivalents
VOC = Volatile organic compounds
Air impurities = Sum of VOC, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide and particulate matter
mt = metric ton
