How we walk the talk on sustainability

We know that real positive change means more than cutting emissions across our products. It also means holding ourselves accountable across every aspect of our business – from human rights across the supply chain through to the sustainability of our own operations and the resources we use.

We have committed to being fossil free by 2040 – a decade earlier than other industry players – as validated by the Science Based Targets initiative. We are taking the lead to reduce our carbon impact.

Science Based Targets

Recycling parts can help save up to 80% carbon emissions compared to the production of a new part. With CE Parts, we take the circular economy approach and adapt a more sustainable way of working when it comes to replacing spare parts.

We are cutting our operational emissions by half with the addition of photovoltaic solar panels at our Changwon facility. This is just one of a number of our facilities that is embracing renewable energy in our fight against climate change.

Collaboration and inspiration

When we bring together our PhD students together with our own specialist networks it’s a chance to share new perspectives and different ways of working. With these annual gatherings we can bring together industry and academia to energize each other and exchange ideas on our ongoing industry transformation.

Gender equality in early R&D

“It is clear that if we don’t design for everyone, it can be a safety issue.” Our collaboration with thesis students is revealing the need for a greater gender balance in our product development, to ensure we become a more sustainable business from the inside out.
