UN Global goals 2030

In 2015, heads of state and of government from UN’s 193 member countries signed the 17 global goals for sustainable development known as Agenda 2030.

For these global goals to become reality by 2030, all parts of society – governments, organizations, the business community, the public sector and private individuals – must get involved and contribute.

Munters supports the goals of Agenda 2030, and has analyzed what they mean for our operations and which goals are the most relevant to us – the ones where we can contribute and make the greatest difference. Three of the goals can be clearly linked to the products Munters sells, and it is therefore in these areas that Munters contributes the most.
Apart from these goals, we are working actively on different projects – both in our own operations and together with our suppliers and distributors – to promote a further six goals.

These are goals where Munters has great possibilities for major impact through direct links to our product range.

 

2: Zero hunger.

Zero hungerMunters delivers products and services – including climate equipment for animal farming, greenhouses and grocery stores – to many companies that are involved in the manufacture and distribution of food. In these industries, a perfect climate results, for example, in an increase in productivity, better animal welfare and less food waste in shops.
The AgHort business area recently launched a service called Echo/Sonar, in which IoT technology is used to link poultry farms to food producers’ data systems, thereby ensuring full control throughout the entire delivery chain. The benefit is increased efficiency in production, and more food for the world’s growing population.

7: Affordable and clean energy.

Clean energyIndicator 7.2 aims at increasing the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix, and indicator 7.3 deals with improving energy efficiency. Munters strives to be a world leader in supplying energy-efficient solutions for air treatment, and energy efficiency is something we put a great deal of focus on, both in product development and in our own operations.
Cooling data centers is an energy-intensive process, and cooling represents 40 percent of the total energy consumption in a data center. Munters’ evaporative cooling technology used in its Oasis product line is an extremely energy-efficient cooling method. In addition, Munters offers solutions for using waste heat from data centers in district heating networks.
We have begun measuring electricity from renewable sources in our production plants, and have the goal of working actively to increase its share over the next few years.

12: Responsible consumption and production.

Responsible consumption and productionIndicator 12.3 concerns reducing food waste along the entire food production and supply chain. Munters offers a number of products and services to companies along the entire food and supply chain, and a proper climate is extremely important for improving productivity and reducing food waste. An additional indicator relevant for Munters is 12.5, which concerns effective waste management aimed at reducing, reusing, and recycling waste. As part of our environmental policy, we are working ­ actively on reducing and handling waste in all production plants.

5: Gender equality

Gender equalityIndicator 5.5 aims at ensuring women’s full and effective parti­cipation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic, and public life.

6: Clean water and sanitation

Clean water and sanitationOne area of focus in our environmental policy is reducing water use in our production; this is continual work that is ongoing in our production plants. Since some of our customers are located in areas where water is in short supply, the demand is for technology that requires little or no water for cooling. We are carrying out various development projects to meet these customers’ needs.

8: Decent work and economic growth

Decent work and economic growthIndicator 8.5 relates to full employment with decent work, and equal pay for work of equal value. Munters is located in many places around the world, and our operations have grown rapidly over the last few years. This has resulted in us being able to employ more people. At the end of 2017, we had 3,500 permanent employees, which can be compared with 2,600 permanent employees at the end of 2014. We are also working actively on conducting wage and salary surveys for the purpose of ensuring that we offer equal pay for work of equal value.

9: Sustainable industry, innovation and infrastructure.

Industry, innovation and infrastructureIndicator 9.5 deals with upgrading the technological capabilities of industrial sectors by encouraging innovation and increasing the number of people working in research and deve­lopment.
