The launch of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 marked an opportunity of a lifetime – not only for the world, but for citizens, cities, and companies alike.
Danfoss is an active player when it comes to living up to the Sustainable Development Goals. We lead by example by combining digitalization, innovation, and energy efficiency to create sustainable solutions. Read more about our work with the Sustainable Development Goals in our Sustainability Report 2016.
To reach our goals, we have established rules and guidelines governing how we will act in ethical, environmental and health and safety matters. We ensure that our employees follow our guidelines via training and compliance programs.
We have incorporated health and safety as important elements in all business activities, from product design and manufacturing processes to the maintenance of buildings and plants.We optimize energy use and reduce emissions in our factories.We train all our managers and selected employees in ethics, anti-corruption and competition law.
To protect our employees and the environment, we have drawn up a list of banned substances that we don’t allow in our products and manufacturing processes. All suppliers must comply with the list and also sign our Code of Conduct, defining Danfoss’ environmental and social requirements. To make sure that all suppliers meet our requirements, we perform regular audits.
Danfoss' Sustainability Report is our Communication on Progress to the UN Global Compact on how our sustainability efforts have progressed.
