NIBE takes responsibility

Our focus on world-class solutions in sustainable energy contributes to the global goal of reducing emissions of atmospheric greenhouse gases.

 

Our entire value chain, from vision to end customers, must be based on the sustainability principles in our business principles and values, which are firmly rooted in our long tradition of responsible entrepreneurship.

 

We are responsible not only for the financial performance of our operations but for their social and environmental impacts. NIBE’s responsibility forms the Group’s framework for sustainability efforts in four different areas.


  

We work on corporate responsibility throughout the value chain

We see our environmental responsibility throughout the processing chain and strive to reduce the environmental and climate impact of products throughout their life cycles 

 

Our ability to retain and attract skilled, committed talent is key to achieving our goals today and into the future

 

As a part of society, we must act responsibly as a company

Our sustainable value creation supports international initiatives

NIBE’s vision to offer sustainable energy solutions means that it has long been natural for us to contribute to a sustainable society in the ways we can. By delivering long-term sustainable value to our customers, we are also able to maintain good profitability and help achieve the global development goals.

NIBE supports UN SDG Goals World-class Solutions in sustainable energy

UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development – Agenda 2030

In September 2015, the member states of the UN adopted global sustainable development goals (SDGs). The 17 SDGs provide guidance for everyone’s commitment to establish a clear plan and to take the necessary steps up to 2030 to create long-term sustainable development, eliminate extreme poverty, solve the climate crisis and reduce inequalities and injustices in the world.

 

In line with our operational priorities and our assessments of where we can assert influence, we have chosen to work mainly with 6 of the 17 global goals in Agenda 2030.

UN Global Compact

For an international company, national legislation is sometimes insufficient when it comes to creating consensus and common guidelines for the entire Group. We have therefore made a commitment to adhere to the UN Global Compact as a commonly accepted platform of mutual principles that can be applied equally by all our companies, partners and suppliers, wherever they are in the world.
