The Sustainability Report 2015 is our Communication on Progress report to the UN on how our efforts in terms of sustainability have progressed.Sustainability ProgramOver the last two years, Danfoss has implemented its sustainability program within defined focus areas. The program will now be taken to a new level: to strengthen the alignment between public affairs, branding and sustainability activities across all regions and segments, and strengthen our position with regard to Danfoss’ external stakeholders.Energy consumption and CO2 emissionsIn 2015, Danfoss’ energy consumption was 584,513 MWh compared to 583,535 MWh in 2014. With the net sales increasing with 11%, the energy intensity fell to 15.4 MWh/m DKK in 2015, versus 17 MWh/m DKK in 2014.In 2015, Danfoss emitted 234,000 tons of CO2 as a result of its electricity and heat consumption. This is 4,000 tons more than in 2014, which primarily is caused by increased electricity consumption in those countries where the CO2 intensity of the electricity is high.Health & SafetyIn 2015, Danfoss recorded 127 Lost Time Injuries (LTI) resulting in at least one day’s absence in 2015. This is a reduction from 165 LTIs in 2014.The total accident rate was 3.4 in 2015, versus 4.4 in 2014. This significant improvement is a result of the “Safety on the Shop Floor” concept, which during 2015 was implemented in all Danfoss factories around the world.Ethical ConductIn 2008, Danfoss launched the Ethics Handbook, a set of guidelines for ethical behavior aimed at all Danfoss employees. The handbook applies to all employees and companies in the Danfoss Group, including the 1,600 new colleagues joining Danfoss in 2015 following the acquisition of Vacon Plc.Product ComplianceDanfoss is in the process of implementing a Group-wide product compliance & transparency program to ensure a “One Company – One Way” approach to the handling of product legislation like REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), RoHS (Restriction of (the use of certain) Hazardous Substances) and WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment).
