Nilfisk’s CSR strategy
CSR is an important part of Nilfisk’s identify, which provides data-based sustainability insights and aims to integrate long-term visioning and accountability in every aspect of Nilfisk’s business activities.
Nilfisk’s CSR strategy and approach address the issues material to Nilfisk, its stakeholders and the risks identified within our value chain.
Developing sustainable products – now and in the future
Product sustainability is becoming more and more important – not just within the professional cleaning industry but across all industries.
Access the case story on how Nilfisk work on bringing new technologies and product features to market to reduce consumption of water, energy and detergents.
Nilfisk take-back programs bring new life to used products
Hundreds of Nilfisk machines are refurbished or recycled each year as part of our efforts to minimize waste.
More and more businesses are looking to rent or buy high-quality secondhand equipment, and the circular economy is growing, also in the professional cleaning industry. Access the case story on product refurbishment here.
Safety first! How Nilfisk increases behavioral safety site by site
At Nilfisk, we have a clear ambition to continuously increase workplace health and safety, reduce the number of incidents and make sure our employees are safe and engaged when working at our sites.
To this end, we recently decided to launch a new and ambitious behavioural safety program at our production sites in Hungary. The program is designed to integrate safety into the everyday working culture and build on the existing efforts at the sites to comply with local requirements as well as Nilfisk’s global safety guidelines.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide guidance for our work within CSR, ensuring that Nilfisk works towards more sustainable development in the future. Nilfisk specifically contributes to SDG number 3, “Good health and well-being”; SDG number 12, “Responsible production and consumption”; and SDG number 13, “Climate Action”.
In 2010, Nilfisk joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) to further support our sustainability efforts and Nilfisk prepares Communication on progress report, which is our annual CSR report.
The UNGC supports businesses committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor rights, environment, and anti-corruption. We use CDP guidance to calculate and disclose our carbon footprint and have committed to Science Based Targets initiative.
