“We accelerate change to ensure a more sustainable future.
Building on our key technologies and our strong, innovative culture, we empower
our customers and our people to build a better world for this and coming generations.”
Our sustainability strategy
The sustainability strategy is divided into four main areas – caring, committed, circularity and climate - reflecting the environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues where we can contribute most by improvement.
Our technologies within heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling enable responsible use of natural resources, reduced environmental impact on industrial processes, improved energy efficiency and heat recovery, better water treatment and reduced emissions. In other words, sustainability is at the core of our business.
Alfa Laval at COP28
As a part of the Swedish delegation to the UN climate change conference COP28 in UAE, Alfa Laval has once again joined the global effort to accelerate the transition to net-zero emissions by 2050. The company's primary focus was the ongoing systemic shift in the industries our societies depend on. This means fast-tracking the energy transition and decreasing emissions in the energy, food, water and marine industries.
Optimizing today, innovating for the future
The past few years have taught us many things, but perhaps the most important learning is that change is the only constant in our world. Alfa Laval is positioned to play an essential role in transforming the fossil economy into a sustainable, decarbonized, open and inclusive world. You can read more about our progress in sustainability in the Sustainability Report 2022, part of the Annual Report:
Contribution to the UN Global Goals
The United Nations has adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, known as Global Goals, that world leaders have pledged to achieve. Cross-sector collaboration between civil society, academia and the business community is key to achieve these goals. Alfa Laval’s core business is strongly contributing to the achievement of many of the Global Goals.
Accelerating sustainable solutions
Imagine a more sustainable world. A world in which less is needed to produce even more. A world in which we efficiently meet our growing energy needs and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions. Imagine a world where we can harness the power of natural resources while preserving them. At Alfa Laval, we don't just imagine this world. We build it together with our customers and our partners.
Carbon neutrality by working together
Alfa Laval has long had a clear focus on reducing our carbon footprint, and it is now a cornerstone of our sustainability strategy.
