Six Priority Areas.
Out of the 17 UN global goals, we’ve chosen to prioritise six. Six areas* where we think we may accomplish the biggest difference.
Good Health and Well-being
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages. Making sure people reach their full potential, as well as contributing to the development of society.
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. Us being equal no matter the gender will benefit all the citizens of the world. Together we can eradicate prejudice and work for equal rights and respect for all.
Decent work and Economic Growth
This promotes sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. We must protect labour rights and once and for all put a stop to modern slavery and child labour.
Responsible Consumption and Production
Lessening our climate impact footprint ensures sustainable consumption and production patterns. We must learn how to use and produce in sustainable ways that will reverse the harm that we have inflicted on the planet.
Through education, innovation, and adherence to our climate commitments, we can make the necessary changes to protect the planet. These changes also provide huge opportunities to promote greater prosperity across the globe.
Life Below Water
We must protect our waters to responsibly manage and protect all marine life around the world. Healthy oceans and seas are essential to our existence.

Our Sustainability Journey.
There is an infinite number of things we could do. Sometimes it can even feel elusive and a bit overwhelming. To structure our work and to meet our ambitions, we’ve broken down the task into smaller parts. We call it Our Sustainability Journey. The point is, we will never reach the finish line. We know this, because we’ve decided to always set new targets, as we reach an intermediate one. The parts we have chosen to focus on right now are areas that are closest to our business segment. These are Transport, Use of Chemicals, Waste and Recycling, Energy Consumption, Certifications and Collaborations, and Social Responsibility. You can read more about each down below, what we stand for today and what targets we have.
Our Model for Use of Chemicals.
Over the years, we have developed a model for how we manage chemicals. A complex work that ensures the highest quality at all levels and that complies with legislation and regulations. To make it easier for ourselves – but most importantly for our partners – we have developed a web-based tool. It helps you to make an early stage, relevant risk assessment. All-in-all, to help you to do what needs to be done, and in the right order. Watch the film, describing how we manage chemicals control and processes in a simple way.
Certifications Enhance Security.
We follow the standards and legislation applicable to the different markets around the world. This provides security for us, as well for our customers. At the same time, new guidelines and approaches are constantly being developed. No longer certified chemicals must be replaced, sometimes from one day to the next. An important work to be performed continuously – as we do. Here are some examples of the legislation and certifications we comply with. There are more standards and codes, from other markets around the world.
A Constantly Revised Manual for Sustainability.
As part of our sustainability work, we developed our own sustainability manual. A comprehensive document constantly updated. Among other things, the book describes our environmental policy, and our sustainability goals. To ensure nothing is missed, it also specifies roles and individuals responsible. Just to make our promise a reality.
