Munters’ Sustainability Agenda
Sustainability is a fundamental part of Munters’ long-term strategy and value creation. To verify that our strategic priorities in the field of sustainability are correct, we get information and draw inspiration via various channels. For example, we monitor which macro-trends – both long and short-term – are the most important. Another source of valuable information is monitoring the work of the UN and other countries around Agenda 2030. We communicate continually with our most important stakeholders – business partners, employees, and the capital market – in order to understand which issues they are prioritizing in the field of sustainability.
Based on the materiality analysis, we have defined Munters’ Sustainability Agenda, and in 2017 we began the work on setting goals, activities, and metrics for our eight areas of focus. This work will continue throughout 2018.
Initially, we chose to prioritize the work on the focus areas connected to the parts of the value chain where we feel we have the greatest possibility of exerting our own influence, such as product development, sourcing, sales through own employees and own manufacturing.
There are other areas in the value chain where we have less possibility of direct influence, for example, how the customer uses and recycles the product, and transportation – especially when customers or suppliers are responsible for it. These areas are also important, in order for us to be able to reduce the environmental impact of our operations, and we will therefore work further on also setting goals, activities, and metrics in these areas.
Our eight focus areas
1. Sustainable products and offerings
We strive to offer our customers energy- and resource-efficient solutions so that they can reduce their environmental impact.
2. Sustainable production
We reduce our own environmental impact through energy- and resource-efficient production units.
3. Sustainable transportation
We limit the environmental impact of all the transportation we utilize.
4. Sustainable, profitable operations
We create value for our stakeholders, such as shareholders and employees, by carrying out a sustainable and profitable business.
5. Business ethics
We conduct our operations ethically, honestly, and in compliance with of the law. Sound decisions and ethical choices in our daily work build confidence in each other as well as our customers and collaborating partners.
6. Collaborating with like-minded
We expect our collaborating partners – such as suppliers and distributors – to observe the same business ethics guidelines that we have pledged ourselves to.
7. An equal and inclusive work environment
We offer a fair, safe, and inclusive workplace to a workforce marked by diversity.
8. Community involvement
We conduct a dialogue with our stakeholders and with the local communities where we operate.
