Our sustainability agenda
Our strategy identifies sustainability as a top priority. We have developed a more diverse sustainability strategy. We are striving for net zero and committed to limiting global warming to 1.5 °C.
Our sustainability agenda consists of focus areas for our handprint and footprint. Handprint is the positive impact we make on the environment and people. With our sustainable offering, our customers can improve their environmental efficiency, productivity and reduce risks.
It is also important we take care of our own footprint, meaning our environmental impact when producing goods and services and delivering them to the customer. We aim to minimize any harmful impacts to the environment, people in our own operations, logistics and supply chain.
