Protection of the Environment and Climate
Egmont’s work with protecting the environment and climate is based on Egmont’s and our suppliers’ compliance with Egmont’s CoC and applicable laws and regulations.
Through the Egmont Social Compliance Programme, Egmont’s suppliers are audited based on e.g. waste and chemicals handling. If challenges are identified, Egmont will enter into dialogue with the supplier to have the issues remedied.
Egmont’s Environmental Policy
During the Autumn 2016, Egmont’s environmental policy was approved by Egmont’s Group Management, and the policy was introduced to the business for implementation during 2017. The environmental policy has been prepared with the help of a project group with representatives from all Egmont divisions. The work with tv and film production for TV2 in Norway or Nordisk Film entails a different type of challenges than production of a book or magazines for Lindhardt & Ringhof or Egmont Publishing. Five key focus areas were identified:
- Energy Consumption
- Waste Handling
- Paper Sourcing
It is up to each division to make an impact analysis and assess where the division has the largest impact and/or where they can make the biggest difference to the environment.
