It is a primary objective for the board of directors of Asetek to ensure the longtime sustainability of the company. For years Asetek has had policies related to corporate citizenship in place, and adherence to the policies has been an integral part of becoming a valued Asetek employee.
In recent years, however, we have realized a need to develop a concrete sustainability strategy and a fully cohesive framework in line with the general requirements of today.
Thus, on this page you will find our first ever Sustainability Report. You can also get an overview of the individual initiatives in the tiles below, as well as read about our Commitment to Sustainable Development at the bottom of this page.
Asetek's commitment to the UN SDGs
Asetek is committed to sustainable development, and we are proud to have made a special commitment to three of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
Asetek Helps Make Data Centres Carbon-Neutral
Data centres – small, medium and hyperscale – are shooting up all over the world and being crammed with tens of thousands of servers that all need cooling.
St. Judes Children's Research Hospital
Asetek played a key role in helping Alienware attain its most successful fundraising year to date for St. Jude Play Live.
Responsible Product Design
It is Asetek’s ambition to minimize the environmental and climate impact of our products by developing liquid cooling solutions that are responsible in all relevant aspects of the product’s lifecycle and performance.
Our Way to New Sustainable Standards
Asetek is increasingly concerned with finding carbon neutral solutions when selecting materials for the products we make and are continuing to develop.
Donation to eSport Center for Challenged Children
Under the slogan ‘Moving People Through eSport’, we have supported Exzentriq in their creation of a welcoming, ground-breaking eSport centre in Aalborg, Denmark.
We are committed to reducing our environmental and climate impacts by promoting and supporting environmentally sustainable technologies and practices in our operations.
Our Sustainability Journey - Raising Awareness
Ever since Asetek was founded in 2000, we have been aware that the company needs to be a positive contributor to society.
In support of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, we brought together our existing operating principles into one framework policy named our Commitment to Sustainable Development.
The principles encompassed in this policy cover all areas of the Group’s operations and have been developed and continue to be reviewed against and updated by reference to relevant codes of corporate governance and international standards including the
United Nations (UN) Global Compact, the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises established by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development.
