Our purpose is to “Enable sustainable modern life”. Environmental issues are an integral part of our sustainability agenda because climate change is a big challenge for our customer industries. Our customers are demanding more efficient and sustainable solutions to reach their ambitious climate targets and to meet the fast-growing demand for strategic raw materials. As a major equipment supplier, we can create the biggest positive change by working together with our customers for more sustainable processes.
Central to our sustainability efforts is our Planet Positive offering – products that are demonstrably more energy or water efficient than the market standard, help our customers cut their CO2 emissions, or achieve other sustainability priorities such as reducing pollution. Planet Positive Services can improve customers’ processes to achieve similar benefits. Our Planet Positive portfolio already includes over 100 products, and our aim is to keep expanding and improving this offering by continuously innovating.
Safety is a license to operate in the industries we serve. We aim to provide leadership and vision in driving safety culture improvement, and the safety of our products is one of the key drivers in our research and development work.
We have set a target to reach net-zero CO2 emissions in our own operations by 2030. We are also targeting a 20% cut in our logistics emissions by 2025 and that 30% of the supplier spend by the end of 2025 is with partners who have set Science-Based CO2 emissions targets. In addition, 100% of our R&D project spend must have a sustainability target related to energy, emissions, water, circularity or safety.
