Sustainability targets


55% of our sales to consist of LCE classified¹ products by the end of 2017.


Result: 51.5% classified products


Of our total 2016 sales, 51.5% (49%) consisted of LCE-classified products.


¹FTSE LCE ™ (Financial Times Stock Exchange Low Carbon Economy) is a quantitative model that form a basis for investors in assessing companies’ performance in the transition to a low carbon economy. Companies disclose the proportion of their sales that is from classified product groups, and comparisons are made over time for each sector.


30% reduction in energy consumption from 2013 to 2020

(measured as MWh/MSEK in turnover)


Result: 30%

The target of 30% corresponds to a reduction from 14 MWh per SEK million in sales in 2013 to <10 MWh per SEK million in sales in 2020.


Consumption of energy has fallen to 10.0 (11.7) MWh per MSEK, which means that we have already achieved our target for 2020. We will establish new target in 2017.


Energy audits were carried out at 5 (4) plants in 2016. We will carry out a further five energy audits in 2017.


Less than 6 per million hours worked by the end of 2018. Our long-term goal is zero accidents, of course.


Result: 10 lost time injuries per million hours worked


There was 193 lost time injuries in the Group during 2016, 36 more than the previous year. The accident rate was 10.1 (8.5) accidents per million hours worked.


Greater focus on accident reporting resulted in an improvement in companies’ reporting in 2016. The effect of the increased reporting is that the accident figures increase initially before the effects of the action taken are visible.


100% of our production units shall have certified management systems for ISO 9001 and 14001 before the end of 2016.


Result ISO 9001: 98%

Result ISO 14001: 88%


Totally 19 certificates have been issued since the beginning of 2016. Three of the seven companies that had no certificate at year-end 2016 will receive their certificates in 2017.


Another three companies are new to the Group and aim to achieve their certification by 2018. One company has had to defer its certification until 2018 because of relocation. All new companies that enter the Group will have two years to get certification.
