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
  • Packaging
  • Waste Handling
  • Chemicals
  • 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.

Environment and climate reporting

In the end of 2017 Egmont began to collect data on its environmental and climate impact. The scope covered the Headquarters and the four divisions in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. In 2018, Egmont continued to report for those three markets as they still account for the vast majority of Egmont’s turnover. The reporting areas are:

  • Energy consumption
  • Waste
  • Goods transportation
  • Paper
  • Packaging

Egmont expects to further advance its environmental data collection over time.
