Sustainability Report 2008

ASSA ABLOY is convinced that the best way to achieve truly sustainable development in the company is to integrate sustainability with the main business processes, that is sales, logistics, manufacturing, product development and sourcing. Sustainability should never be a stand-alone process or something we simply add on top of what we do. The integrated approach will ensure that sustainability becomes a natural part of everyday work for all our employees.
