Go Greener fast

Go Greener fast is Egmont’s commitment to climate and environment and an important part of our 2025 business strategy. Being a responsible and trusted media group, we want to contribute to a low-carbon economy and a better planet for future generations. Go Greener fast has two components: Carbon neutral in own operations and sustainable supply chain solutions.
Carbon neutral in own operations
Sustainable supply chain solutions

Carbon neutral in own operations

We want to lower the CO2-emissions from our own operations, which includes our green energy consumption, our company cars and business flights. We want to transition to green electricity and in 2021, we invested in a solar park in Denmark. We are looking into similar investments in green electricity for Norway and Sweden.

Sustainable supply chain solutions

The main part – 82% in 2021 – of Egmont’s CO2-emissions is related to our supply chains. We are currently focusing on four selected supply chain categories where we believe, we can make a big impact: Printed products, covermounts and toys, packaging, and goods transportation.
