Key priorities and progress 2020
Our nine sustainability promises are the areas where Electrolux can make a difference for the better.
They cover all the stages in our value chain – from R&D and suppliers, through our own operations and consumer use, to the end of life of our products. The continuous work in all these areas helps us to deliver on our bold climate targets.
Our targets for the future
Reduce CO2 emissions in operations by 80% and by 25% in products by 2025
Climate neutral operations by 2030
Climate neutral value chain by 2050
By focusing on our major impacts, we will prevent millions of metric tons of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere. This is our roadmap to become climate neutral throughout the value chain by 2050.
