Electrolux Group: high global warming gases phased out from 97% of products with refrigerants


Electrolux Group recently published its Sustainability Report 2023. Among the main results, 97% of the products with refrigerants had switched to gases with low global warming potential, which led to recognition in the latest UN Cool Coalition report on the cooling industry. Besides, the Group sourced 60% of all energy used in its operations from renewable sources in 2023 and the most energy- and water-efficient products accounted for 29% of total units sold and 38% of gross profit. Another milestone achieved is that the global non-profit organization CDP gave Electrolux Group an A grade for its work on climate action and supplier climate change engagement, and an A- for water management. Besides, in early 2024 the company had its second science-based climate target approved by the Science-Based Targets initiative, after achieving its first target three years ahead of time. The new target aims to reduce the company’s direct and indirect carbon emissions resulting from its operations (scope 1 and 2) by 85% and absolute scope 3 carbon emissions (use of sold products, materials, transport of products and business travel) by 42% between 2021 and 2030. The target is aligned with the Paris Agreement. “Our sustainability performance in 2023 and our new science-based climate target approved in 2024 show that together we continue to build a better company, create better solutions and enable better living – says Elena Breda, Chief Technology & Sustainability Officer at Electrolux Group –. This highlights the power of our combined people, planet and business perspectives”.
