Sustainability in Danfoss
In 2002, Danfoss became a signatory to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact Initiative dealing with human rights, labor rights, the environment and anti-corruption. We continue to support the Global Compact, which governs our sustainability and social responsibility efforts.
Our Sustainability Report is our Communication on Progress report to the UN on how our efforts have progressed.
Our achievements in 2012 included the implementation of ethical conduct training for all people managers and the development of a new anti-corruption program. We also worked out a new method of presenting the overall climate and energy footprint of our products in response to growing demand from our customers. We have also continued the momentum of our energy savings project which aims to optimize our own energy consumption at our 15 largest factories.
However, we want to do more.
Therefore, we set out to draft a new sustainability strategy in 2012, intending to clarify priorities for our sustainability efforts based on the Group's strategic goals. Our sustainability strategy will anchor the Group's sustainability targets and priorities even more strongly in our business processes, constantly optimizing value creation for our customers, employees and the local communities we serve. We look forward to presenting our sustainability strategy in 2013.
