Our goal within sustainability sphere is to be a reliable partner offering sustainable solutions. We protect people, process performance and the planet by prioritizing safety and sustainability in everything we do. We have set our long-term sustainability targets to respond to global megatrends driving more focus on sustainable business operations impacting both our customers and us, not forgetting our partners.

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.

Enhancing environmental transparency

We believe that environmental transparency is vital in building sustainable business and creating a sustainable future for people and the planet. To enhance environmental transparency, Neles has disclosed its environmental data through the global disclosure platform CDP. Through this reporting, we shared the impact of our operations on climate change security.

CDP is a not-for-profit charity that runs a global system to measure and manage environmental impacts and track global progress towards building a sustainable economy. Through CDP, investors and purchasers can access environmental information provided by companies and other organizations to use in financial decisions. 

Disclosing our environmental impact is part of our long-term commitment to environmentally responsible business practices

Sustainability for customers

With tightening legislation and scarcity of raw materials, our customers value environmentally efficient and safe technologies. High-quality and safe products, comprehensive services and close cooperation with our customers are our means to contributing to our customers’ productivity and license to operate.

We offer our customers sustainable solutions via increased process reliability. Our target is to develop all-round reliable customer experience.
