Nilfisk’s CSR strategy

CSR plays a vital role in the future of our business. Our new five-year growth strategy integrates sustainability in all areas of the business and introduces a renewed focus on increasing the sustainability of our portfolio and operations.

A systematised and cross-functional sustainability is continuously linked to Nilfisk’s core business and strategic priorities.

Nilfisk CSR Strategy Model 2022

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide guidance for our work within CSR, ensuring that Nilfisk works towards more sustainable development in the future. Nilfisk specifically contributes to SDG number 3, “Good health and well-being”; SDG number 12, “Responsible production and consumption”; and SDG number 13, “Climate Action”.

Csr Sd

In 2010, Nilfisk joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) to further support our sustainability efforts and Nilfisk prepares Communication on progress report, which is our annual CSR report.

The UNGC supports businesses committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor rights, environment, and anti-corruption. We use CDP guidance to calculate and disclose our carbon footprint and have committed to Science Based Targets initiative.
