Sustainability performance in 2015

Almost all of the sustainability KPIs improved in 2015, for the Group as well as for the divisions.

Several entities were certified for ISO 14001 for the first time during the year. Strong improvements were noted regarding the injury rate and the injury lost day rate, as well as for water and energy efficiency.

With 338 (331) reporting units it is important to ensure a high level of awareness of the Group’s sustainability priorities in all parts of the organization and to share information and best practices between entities. The ASSA ABLOY sustainability database and analysis tool is a key element for tracking performance and identifying areas where improvements can be made.

How performance is measured 

Since 2010, the divisions are obliged to identify and report the most material environmental risks for each individual entity, and to explain how these risks are managed. The Group reports its sustainability performance (certain KPIs) every three months through a Group-wide sustainability reporting system.

In relation to the program set for 2020, the Group has identified four additional KPIs:

  • Consumption of non-hazardous waste
  • Portion of renewable energy
  • Other types of organic solvents
  • Consumption of Freons
