Two sides of sustainability
Alfa Laval's Business Principles, our Code of Conduct, describe the way we act within society whilst achieving our business goals. The four principles; Social, Business Integrity, Environment and Transparency include respecting the human rights of our employees and the communities in which we operate and our work to reduce environmental impact
At Alfa Laval sustainability is also about capturing business opportunities. Our products and solutions are involved in treating water, improving energy efficiency, reducing carbon emissions and minimizing environmental pollution, as well as heating, cooling, separating and transporting food. In other words, sustainability is at the core of our business.
Optimizing today, Innovating for the future
The past few years have taught us many things, but perhaps the most important learning is that change is the only constant in our world. Alfa Laval is positioned to play an essential role in transforming the fossil economy into a sustainable, decarbonized, open and inclusive world. You can read more about our progress in sustainability in the sustainability chapter in our Annual Report.
Contribution to the UN Global Goals
The United Nations has adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, known as Global Goals, that world leaders have pledged to achieve. Cross-sector collaboration between civil society, academia and the business community is key to achieve these goals. Alfa Laval’s core business is strongly contributing to the achievement of many of the Global Goals.
