By 2030 the firm has committed to ensuring that all of its production sites will have zero waste to landfill and will be aiming to turn waste into resources.

Circularity will be a prime design consideration for its absorbent hygiene products, Ontex has confirmed, and it intends to become a carbon neutral operation.

The company states that it is committed to reducing direct and indirect emissions using science-based targets aligned with the reductions called for by climate scientists.

Ontex has confirmed that it aims to source 100 per cent renewable electricity in its own operations by 2030.

The firm also intends to employ methods such as carbon sinks, which are natural or artificial deposits that absorb and store carbon from the atmosphere and reduce greenhouse effects.
