Our sustainability work is structured within three areas:

Business Ethics

We are committed to the highest standards of ethical, moral and legal business conduct. In many of the countries where we are active, health and safety in the workplace is regulated by stringent national legislation.

People & Society

Our corporate social responsibility is built on high health, safety, discrimination and ethics standards. We strive to make a positive and sustainable contri­bution to the communities we are active in.


Our sustainability work includes reducing the environmental impact of our products throughout their entire life cycle. Environmentally compatible product development is a priority.
