For the Better: the nine promises by Electrolux


Electrolux-For-the-Better-356x356[1]Presenting its Sustainability Report for 2015, Electrolux also proclaimed its For the Better project, a framework of nine promises to make a positive change in its solutions, operations and for society. The initiative makes sustainability an even more integrated part of doing business at Electrolux. “From defining new goals in product development and manufacturing, to inspiring and supporting community initiatives around the world, For the Better sets the agenda until 2020 and beyond.”- they say from the company. Electrolux overarching sustainability target, to halve its climate impact by reducing CO2 emissions by 50% from 2005 to 2020, remains a top priority. In 2015, Electrolux reached the 27%-mark. The nine promises can be synthetized in the next three groups:
1 Better solutions – because use of products has the biggest environmental impact: constantly improve product performance and efficiency; make better use of resources; eliminate harmful materials. 2 Better operations – because Electrolux should set the standard for employees and partners: ensure the best health and safety; achieve more with less; always act ethically and respect human rights.
3 Better society – because caring for communities and the planet is also good for business: provide sustainable solutions for everyone; be a force for good; improve sustainability in the supply chain.
