Build sustainability for the future
Sustainability is a key part of our strategy, culture and day-to-day operations. Our sustainability legacy provides a strong foundation for our operations and our sustainable customer offering. Electrolux Professional is a signatory of the UN Global Compact and our sustainability work is based on the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals.
We recognize the importance of taking action to mitigate climate change and we support the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. Consequently, we have an ambitious overarching target to become climate neutral in our own operations by 2030.
At a more operational level, the strategy aims to develop sustainable, more energyefficient solutions, sustainable operations, and reduce our environmental impact. In terms of social impact, we seek to earn the trust of everyone affected by our operations, and demonstrate commitment to the environment, ethics, and human rights. Electrolux Professional’s sustainability targets center on climate, health & safety, and diversity.
In parallel to the climate neutral target for our own operations, we are determined to continue developing low-resource consuming products so as to reduce the impact from the product-use phase as products consume energy, water, and detergents. This is good for both our customers’ running costs as well as for our planet. It is only by understanding and managing the total impact of our business on people and the planet, that we can create the conditions to exceed our customers’ expectations and remain an attractive employer, thereby delivering long-term value creation.
