A sustainable offering throughout the value chain

Arjo strives for a sustainable use of energy and resources, and regularly conducts controls and improvements to reduce the company’s climate footprint. In line with the Paris Climate Agreement, the goal is to lower our total carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030. We also strive to increase our contribution to a circular economy, towards long-term sustainable development, by reducing our resource consumption while simultaneously improving performance and customer value.

Product life cycle analyses

To determine where our products’ environmental impact occurs, we conduct life cycle analyses on an ongoing basis. From these, cross-functional teams work to identify areas of improvement ahead of future product development. Through education on design for circularity, we aim to optimize new products from sustainability aspects such as climate impact, reuse/recycling and hazardous waste.

100% fossil free electricity

All five Arjo production sites are now using fossil free electricity in their operations. For sites in Poland, Canada and UK, we could contract this directly with our local energy supplier. For sites in China and Dominican Republic, we purchased energy certificates in nearby regions, since there is no fossil free electricity available locally.

Governance

Arjo’s Board of Directors monitors progress twice per year, and is responsible for contributing to and approving plans. As a standing item on a monthly agenda, the Arjo Management Team follows the implementation of the plans across the company. Smart, cross-functional teams drive initiatives and projects that proactively contribute to the agenda’s key goals. Every quarter, a sustainability forum is held comprised of managers from all functions and under the management of Arjo’s President and CEO.
