Environmental initiatives

We appreciate that all companies shall address and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2021 we had external assistance in calculating our CO2e for scopes 1, 2, and 3 as a baseline that can assist us in reducing CO2e. Our reduction objectives will be based on Science Based Targets and approved by SBTi. Scope 3 represents 90 per cent of emissions.

You can find our results from 2020 and 2021 on page 116 in our Annual CoP Report (11 in our owners, Polaris Equity’s annual Sustainability Report).

Based on this data, we have initiated a process of:

– Replacing virgin materials with recycled materials in products. Examples of materials are: Aluminum, Plastic and PCBs (printed circuit boards).
– Continuously reducing CO2e by reducing air-travels and -freight, in particular avoiding ‘rush orders’.
– Continuously reducing and improving recycling of packaging materials.
– Developing high quality products with a long lifetime reduces environmental impacts.

Do you have any experience of adverse impacts that we caused or contributed to, or do you want to give us ideas for better preventing or mitigating risks, please contact us.
