Höganäs has published its most recent sustainability report, which it says covers the PM company’s important sustainability work and challenges going forward.

The company is involved in work to replace fossil process coal with renewable alternatives as well as increase diversity. Currently it hires 16% female employees with a target to increase the number to 25% by 2021.

Some 83% of all Höganäs’ process waste and side-stream materials were sold as products, sent for external use or reclaimed internally, and there was an 8.7% decrease in specific energy use compared to 2010. The company says that its goal is 10% reduction per produced tonne of metal powder between 2010 and 2020.To access the report, go here.
