Sustainability is integrated into everything we do. We do things efficiently and responsibly in terms of the environment, people and the economy. We are committed to the continuous improvement of safety and the goal of zero harm in all activities at our own and customers’ premises.

Sustainability agenda

Neles sustainability agenda consists of our most material sustainability topics. The topics were carefully chosen after profound discussions with various Neles functions, shareholders and customers.

Environmental efficiency

Even though we are already at a good level in terms of energy and water usage as well as waste volumes and emissions, we are continuously improving the environmental efficiency of Neles' operations. Sustainability is always taken into account in our research and development (R&D) activities. Through well-defined innovation processes, we make sure our customers can tackle environmental challenges now and in the future.

Health and safety

We are committed to the continuous improvement of safety. Our ultimate safety goal is zero harm in all activities at our own and our customers’ premises. We measure this by Lost Time Incident Frequency (LTIF). Product safety is always top priority.

Our operations are guided by the Neles Code of Conduct and the United Nations Global Compact Initiative. The wellbeing of employees, diversity and leadership are the key elements in our employee social responsibility.

Suppliers, society and people

We expect our suppliers and partners to make every effort to always comply with our Code of Conduct. Sustainability is also a component of our supplier audits.

We promote good corporate citizenship by having proactive dialogue with our stakeholders.
