    Driving sustainability in our operations


    Our Sustainable Operations Program focuses on reducing our carbon footprint, improving the environmental and safety performance of our manufacturing facilities, and aims to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. We employ energy efficiency measures and renewable energy in our efforts to ensure a healthy future for generations to come. Since 2014, we’ve had multi-site certificates for ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. The ISO 14001 certificate is based on our environmental programs. The OHSAS 18001 certificate covers safety programs where more preventive measures will create a safer and healthier workplace for our employees. The foundation for these programs is based on legal compliance requirements. We set even higher performance requirements in our policies.

    Increasing energy efficiency of our operations


    In our Brighter Lives, Better World program, reduction of CO2 emissions and energy use are central to our 2020 commitments. Through substantial efforts in various departments, we intend to continue our carbon reduction efforts to make our operational footprint carbon neutral in 2020. This consists of manufacturing, non-industrial operations, logistics, and business travel.

    Our renewable energy journey


    As we want to continue leading the change and make our operations future proof, we are committed to switching from fossil-fuel based energy to renewable energy.

    We joined the Climate Group’s EV100 Initiative in 2018 and committed to operate a lease fleet of hybrid and fully electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030.

    We have also committed to source 100% of our electricity from renewable sources in 2020 globally and we are a member of RE100. We invested in Power Purchase Agreements in the US and in Poland to ensure our operations in these countries are powered by renewable electricity.
