Our CSR approach
At Nilfisk, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plays a vital role in the future of our business. We believe positive business results will be achieved by working persistently and systematically with CSR related initiatives. We set robust goals and initiatives to minimize Nilfisk´s negative impact while maximizing the value we create for people, the environment, and the economy.
Our strategy comprises of four focus areas, across which we believe we can make the greatest impact:
Climate and Environment – Society – Customers – Workplace
Climate and Environment
Reducing our climate and environmental footprint
Climate and Environment is a critical part of Nilfisk’s CSR strategy and business. We focus on reducing our negative impact and optimizing opportunities to bring value to people and the environment. We have committed to the Science Based Targets initiative and have set ambitious climate targets.
Our work with an Environmental Management System (EMS) and the focus on certifying our sites in accordance ISO 14001:2015 lay the basis to further improve our environmental performance.
