In Camfil’s 2019 Sustainability Report all the achievements are aligned with United Nations sustainable development goals which include a commitment to ensure the ecological use of resources, and anchored with the company’s vision of advocating clear air as a human right. Our sustainable clean air solutions backed by strong R&D and innovation are protecting people, processes and the environment.
Environment, Labour, Human Rights and Anti-Corruption are four powerful pillars of Camfil’s sustainable development work. To reduce environmental footprint, our 30 global manufacturing units are developing products that have the highest filtration efficiency and lowest energy consumption, along with a goal to reduce production waste annually by 1% in relation to volume. To ensure the safe work environment, risk assessments are conducted regularly and the right protective equipment is used. Better and eco-friendly alternatives are used instead of harmful raw material at our manufacturing sites. In 2019, we have succeeded in reducing the number of chemicals used by 5 percent, and 6 chemicals have been replaced by better alternatives for humans as well as the environment.
