Environmental Performance Results
In recent years, we have increased the amount of measurement and tracking of our CO2 emmissions as well as our energy, water and waste consumption.
Below are the results and progress we have made in a selection of areas. Many of our local units set their own targets.
- Internal audits of our product development projects revealed that we can become even better at defining sustainability requirements and to verify that they are met. We have now made changes in our development process to improve this area.
- In 2015, 778 suppliers were asked to declare if the articles and products they provide contain any restricted substances. We received answers for 86% of all the articles.
- All of our 19 factories and three distribution centres are measuring their use of energy and water as well as the amount and type of waste they generate. The units set their own targets and work individually and continuously to improve performance.
- We have started to calculate our transport-related CO2 emissions. We are able to track the majority of what we transport globally. We began this work in 2016. Our focus is to reduce air transports and to improve the loading factor.
