Electrolux recognized for its sustainability actions


Electrolux has been recognized for its sustainability actions with a double “A” score by the global non-profit CDP. For five years Electrolux has been on the CDP climate A list, whilst the place on the water A list is a first. CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is a widely recognized measure of strong corporate environmental transparency. Over 5 800 businesses were scored based on data submitted through CDP’s questionnaires in 2020. “Our overall sustainability framework is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and represents our strong commitment to contribute to key global challenges. We are pleased to be recognized by CDP for our actions to tackle climate change, address water security risks and meet our ambitious climate targets”, said Henrik Sundström, Vice President for Sustainability Affairs at Electrolux. Notable activities this year include Electrolux stepping up its commitment to climate action by introducing a plan to replace high-impact greenhouse gases in all of its appliances by 2023, in support of the Paris climate agreement. Electrolux has also decided to base part of the remuneration to senior managers on targets for the successful reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. To further drive global action on water security, Electrolux has joined the recently launched 50L Home Coalition. Businesses, governments and organizations such as the World Economic Forum have joined forces to drive development of innovative solutions for responsible water usage in homes. Electrolux will work with WWF to further develop its work on water stewardship and update the company’s context-based water roadmap and targets.
