Our sustainability agenda is being integrated into our HSEQ management system, thus ensuring the consistency and efficiency of the implementation of our targets.

Global megatrends

Global megatrends drive more focus on sustainable business operations. Especially growing demand for materials, safety, reliability and emissions as well as growing automation levels and digitalization set the focus for our sustainability targets.

The growth of the population while diminishing of the planet’s raw materials are forcing the industrial manufacturers to produce more with less while focusing more on environmental efficiency and profitability.

Safety, reliability and emissions of industrial processes are put into the spotlight due to tighter legislation. More reliable process performance with less waste and emissions is becoming more and more important.

Growing automation levels and digitalization helps securing safety but also the productivity of the plant. With more digital tools to predict maintenance needs and reading the process performance, there is a less chance of sudden interruptions and more data for making right decisions at the right time for the plant to perform at its best.

We drive our targets for a brighter tomorrow in these three areas: Health and safety, Environment, Society and People.
