Aiming for sustainability leadership

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 significantly more energy or water efficient than an industry benchmark or a previous generation product. Planet Positive products help our customers cut their CO? emissions, both directly and through reductions in carbon intensity of manufacturing and delivering products, as well as by offering the potential for increased recycling. Planet Positive Services can improve our customers’ processes with modernizations and upgrades as well as by optimizing existing production processes. Our Planet Positive portfolio already includes over 100 products, and our aim is to keep expanding and improving this offering by continuously innovating. We target 80% of our R&D spend on Planet Positive development by 2030.

We have a zero-harm approach to health and safety. With our comprehensive safety agenda and continuous actions, we aim to improve the safety of our employees, partners, customers, contractors and other stakeholders. The safety of our products is one of the key drivers in our research and development work. Our safety promise doesn’t end with the product. We have a range of solutions to eliminate safety risks at customer operations and improve customers’ operational performance over the full life-time of our products.

We have set a target to reach net-zero CO? 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 direct supplier spend by the end of 2025 is with partners who have set Science-Based CO? emissions targets.
