Climate targets
Preem’s target is to replace fossil raw materials with renewable materials as much as possible in its own fuel production and thereby increase sales of renewable fuels. By 2030, Preem will produce at least 2 500 000 cubic meters renewable fuels, which corresponds to Preem’s volume sales on the Swedish market.

How will the targets be achieved?
For over 20 years Preem has taken responsibility for the product chain from start to finish. Preem puts great effort in upgrading the two refineries in Gothenburg and Lysekil in order to produce renewable fuels. Preem researches several different options of renewable raw materials and one of the most important and sustainable sources is the Swedish forest.

Sverige har högt uppsatta miljömål och en av de största utmaningarna är att minska andelen fossila bränslen vid transporter. Preem har genom sina förnybara bränslen hittills bidragit till att minska utsläppen med 2 miljoner ton koldioxid. Genom Hagainitiativet har vi tillsammans med andra företag en stark plattform att visa hur industrin är en del av lösningen.
