New sustainability goals for Sandvik

Sustainability is an integral part of Sandvik´s business and we are increasingly becoming the leading sustainable business partner for our customers. Sandvik will now take the next big step by launching four ambitious 2030 goals.

Sandvik is committed to using engineering and innovation to advance the world towards sustainable business. We understand the need for the world to make the shift to new business models and new thinking, in line with United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.

The new sustainability goals are addressing four areas; circularity, climate change, safety and fair play. See a more detailed description of the goals in the section for sustainable business.

We have defined a number of enablers that will help drive the change. We will for example integrate the goals into the performance management systems and incentive programs, we will initiate a sustainability idea program and use the power of an effective and efficient governance to keep focus on the goals across all business areas.

“We need the dedication and commitment from all our employees if we are to achieve these challenging goals. Sandvik will be innovating for a sustainable future that we can all be proud of and that will present new opportunities for all of us and our customers. I feel assured we will achieve this together,” says Ulrika Wedberg, Head of Sustainability at Sandvik.
