Sustainability
Every day, Lindéngruppen works to support sustainable, long-term development of leading industrial companies. This is our purpose.
Our sustainability framework
The Lindéngruppen Sustainability Framework raises awareness about the impacts our businesses have and makes it easier to track progress on how we are addressing them.

Our framework encourages high standards across our businesses and helps them integrate human rights, labour, ethics, supply chain and environmental priorities into their operations and product development.

Each leadership team uses the framework to set the priorities that are most relevant to its business, and regularly reports progress to its board using the framework as a basis for discussion. Based on these reports, each board sets or adjusts its own strategies.

Lindéngruppen’s board reviews the framework and the progress made by all of the businesses on an annual basis.

In 2017 we updated the framework to reinforce our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), align with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and meet the new EU directive on sustainability reporting.

Our purpose priorities
Our approach to sustainability is based on four interconnected priorities. They mirror our strategy and have their roots in our purpose – to support sustainable, long-term development of industrial companies.

• Empowering positive impact – Inspiring our businesses to identify strategies that add value to customers and society and reduce negative impacts.

• Competence – Striving to attract and retain the right competence for Lindéngruppen and for our businesses.

• Governance – Striking the right balance between governance for decentralised, agile and results-oriented companies, and a robust structure that builds trust and resilience.‍

• Capital – Striving to attract and retain the right competence for Lindéngruppen and for our businesses.
