Raising the bar

Having achieved our 2020 environmental targets, we have adopted ambitious new goals to mitigate climate change and leave a healthier planet for future generations through the responsible use of energy and materials.

Climate action

 

We recognize the threat of climate change and the effects it can have on human health. We are committed to collaborating with our customers and suppliers to reduce CO2 emissions across our value chain in line with a 1.5 °C global warming scenario.

Circular economy

Circular economy

 

We are maximizing the lifetime value of our products and solutions while minimizing the use of new materials and resources and eliminating waste. We do this through innovative service models, smart digital solutions, and product take-back, refurbishment and recycling.

Ecodesign

We embed sustainability in our innovation processes. EcoDesign is an approach that addresses all aspects of product development and design, including recyclability and chemicals management.

Supplier sustainability

Sustainable supply management is more than simply managing compliance: it is about collaborating with our partners to reduce the environmental footprint of our supply chain in line with a 1.5 °C global warming scenario.

Environmental profit and loss

Environmental Profit & Loss

 

Each year we publish an Environmental Profit & Loss account, which expresses the total environmental impact of our activities and products in monetary terms. This provides insight into the main environmental hotspots where we need to innovate to reduce our impact.

Sustainable sites

Through 2025 we will further embed circular practices at our sites and continue sending zero used materials to landfill.
