Bona Adds RE in US, Germany, Sweden

Bona — a global, sustainably driven company that supplies products for installing, renovating, maintaining and restoring flooring — announced investments in renewable energy at facilities in Sweden, Germany and the United States.

In May 2023, the U.S. headquarters in Englewood, Colorado, enrolled in the WindSource program to purchase renewable wind power.

In Germany, 9% of total energy usage now comes from Bona’s solar power production, 36% from bought certificates of renewable electricity and 49% from bought certificates of biogas. 

The company also announced in its report the establishment of a Sustainability Board, whose purpose is to drive the development of the sustainability work according to Bona’s vision.

The company set specific emissions targets for the coming three years with an aim to cut its mobile combustion, part of Scope 1, and energy usage, part of Scope 2, in half by 2026 based on its 2022 levels. Bona’s Sustainability Board is leading this initiative and identifying pathways to reduce emissions. 

As detailed in its Sustainability Report for 2023, Bona is mapping the indirect emissions throughout its value chain. The Sustainability Board is currently collecting information on its climate impact both upstream and downstream. With this information, Bona plans to set concrete targets that will help it reach carbon neutral by 2040.

Bona produces its own solar power and geothermal heating and buys certificates for renewable energy. 

“We are currently in the midst of developing our sustainability work in line with our ambitions and stakeholder expectations. This year’s report reflects this ongoing journey and presents many examples of the progress we are making, among which are our advances in reducing fossil-based plastics in our packaging, the introduction of bio-based products, and the launch of our Sustainability Board,” said Magnus Andersson, Bona CEO, in a statement. “Led by our Global Sustainability Manager and involving members from our General Management team, the Board will ensure swifter decision-making and closer ties between strategic leadership and our operations.”
