With Asetek’s Commitment to Sustainable Development and our concrete actions, we seek to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the best possible way. The global goals continue to give us a frame of reference in our strategy work and a perspective on the business opportunities inherent in our sustainability work. The three SDGs to which we have made a special commitment are goals number 8, 12 and 13.
Decent Work and Economic Growth
We seek to promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. Among other initiatives, it is deeply embedded within Asetek’s DNA to promote and develop the human talent that makes us who we are.
We recognize the importance of investing in human potential, which is why Asetek prioritizes employing and supporting apprentices across the organization, in both workshop, finance, R&D, and marketing.
At Asetek we recognize the importance of a diverse workforce, with equal opportunities for all. We work to make Asetek among the best places of employment, enabling us to attract the very best people.
We’ve experienced the great benefits stemming from our extensive work with different corporate social responsibility topics, realizing the potential that lies within a progressive approach to sustainable development. Values and purpose.
Responsible Consumption and Production
We work to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns through rigorous adherence to our CSR-policies and the constant look-out for ways we can improve our own operations and influence those of our partners and the societies of which we are a part.
Without an extensive knowledge regarding how our products impact their surroundings from cradle to gate and beyond, it is impossible to recognize areas of potential optimization.
This is why we work to implement life-cycle assessments across our line of products and production processes, to further our own and that of stakeholders understanding of our impact, ultimately informing methodologies on how he can improve cradle-to-cradle design and production practices.
As an industry leader, we find it suitable for us to lead by example, by removing hazardous substances from our products and packaging beyond those banned legislatively.
Our ongoing quest to optimize design and production processes has resulted in massive reductions in the relative power consumption of our liquid cooling solutions as well as a reduction in the amount of materials needed for the production of said cooling solutions.
We acknowledge the urgent need for solutions to the climate crisis and aspire to take part in solving the immense challenges facing humanity.
We are also not blind to the need for climate action in our own processes and specifically among our vast network of global suppliers, on which we as technology company rely heavily.
As an intermediary solution, while reduction efforts are continuously ongoing, Asetek has realized the full compensation of our direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions in scope 1 and 2. This has been done using certified carbon credits from a reputable provider of such.
In the coming years, we will work to establish a deep understanding of the emissions associated with our value chain, also known as Scope 3 emissions. This overview and understanding is an important prerequisite of the challenge related to reducing these emissions that lies ahead.
