We play an active role in sustainable global development where social responsibility, the environment and climate considerations go hand-in-hand with sound business development. Our approach rests on two pillars:
In 2002, Danfoss became a signatory to the UN Global Compact Initiative, which deals with:
We continue to support the Global Compact as a governing principle in our efforts to operate sustainably and in the way we do business.
Our sustainability program is based on global megatrends, our expectations to the growth areas food, infrastructure, climate, and energy, and input from managers and other key employees in Danfoss.
The program has four focus areas: Energy & Climate, Product Compliance & Transparency, Environment, Health & Safety, and Ethical Conduct & Human Rights. The program will be implemented in 2014-2017.
Danfoss Climate Strategy 2030 is about the Group's own business processes, production and buildings. Going towards 2030, the strategy commits us to:
This includes reducing the energy intensity by 3% every year from 2017 and the CO2 emissions per consumed MWh energy by 5%.
To Danfoss, ethics is not just about money. It is how we do business. It is the very core of who we are.
