Circularity and Reduction of Waste

Circularity and reduction of waste 

The circular economy becomes our framework

tesa will contribute to the circular economy and use resources as carefully as possible. First and foremost, this involves avoiding waste. Where that is not possible, we reduce it. Where waste is unavoidable, we seek to reuse or recycle it by various means. By 2025, we want to eliminate all landfill disposal of production-related waste.

tesa will further invest significantly in the further development of solvent-free and energy-efficient production technology and capacity. The facilities on which we currently coat with solvents are to be technically upgraded so that the solvents are fully recovered at the end of the process and thus remain in the cycle.

Our major sustainability targets 2030

  • We strive for reduction of waste from our production and products.
  • By 2030, we will provide more products with sustainable end-of-life solutions.
  • We will invest into solvent-free processes and full recovery of solvents.
