Our business activities form the basis of our sustainability journey. We strive to run our business responsibly and offer a great workplace for our people and the next generation of professionals.

Responsible business

Taking responsibility for our environmental and climate impact is an obvious requirement for doing business today and tomorrow. We want to be a responsible business and use our impact to do good. In recent years, we started taking steps to determine where we need to take action to make our business operations more sustainable. 

For us, being a responsible business means becoming CO2-neutral, for our own operations and activities (scope 1 and 2 of the GHG-protocol), continuously striving for maximum circularity, sourcing responsibly and creating a sustainable supply chain. We prioritise the areas in which we have the most impact and engage relevant stakeholders to help us realise our ambitions. 

We challenge the choices we make, continuously strive to improve the way we work and look for more responsible options. Sustainability demands improvements in the whole production chain, from the raw materials that make our machines and the energy to run our processes and buildings, to how we take care of our employees. But we also motivate the people and partners we work with to do the same and work together on sustainable practices in the chain.
