Sustainability is an integral part of Sandvik’s business and it is increasingly becoming the leading sustainable business partner for its customers. Sandvik is taking a big step by heading towards four ambitious 2030 goals.

Sandvik is committed to using engineering and innovation to advance the world towards sustainable business. The company understands the need for the world to make the shift to new business models and new thinking, in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.

President and CEO of Sandvik Björn Rosengren said: “We see sustainability as an opportunity for new innovations and new ways of working that will drive efficiency and productivity, open new markets, support our customers and help us sustain long-term growth.”

The sustainability goals are addressing circularity, climate change, safety and fair play.

Sandvik has defined a number of enablers that will help drive the change. It will integrate the goals into the performance management systems and incentive programmes, initiate a sustainability idea programme, and use the power of effective and efficient governance to keep the focus on the goals across all business areas.

Head of sustainability at Sandvik Ulrika Wedberg said: “We need the dedication and commitment from all our employees if we are to achieve these challenging goals. Sandvik will be innovating for a sustainable future that we can all be proud of and that will present new opportunities for all of us and our customers. I feel assured we will achieve this together.”
