Our sustainability vision and long term objectives

Indutrade has a long-term perspective on entrepreneurship and sustainability is a natural part of our decentralised business model. Through our active ownership via the Boards of Directors for our companies, we strive to ensure that sustainability aspects have been integrated into their business models and strategies.

Sustainability Vision 

Indutrade’s sustainability strategy represents a shared commitment that the businesses within the group continuously develops and improves in ways that are economically, environmentally and socially responsible.

Indutrade has a strategic framework that summarizes our focus areas for sustainable development. The framework is based on a materiality analysis in which we have identified the most important sustainability topics for the Group and our companies, based on impact and stakeholder expectations. We work towards overall goals in the areas of People, Environment and Profitable Growth and have defined associated targets and KPIs that we follow up at least annually.

Sustainability governance

Indutrade's sustainability governance efforts have been adapted to our decentralised organisation and they primarily occur via the Boards of Directors of our subsidiaries. Sustainability is included as a mandatory agenda item at the subsidiaries’ board meetings. Outcomes on reported data as well as the company’s own materiality analysis and associated goals, KPIs and activities are discussed.

The MD and senior executives of each subsidiary have operational responsibility for their own sustainability work and each Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the company follows its own and Indutrade's
guidelines and policies.

Sustainability governance occurs primarily via:

  • Board meetings
  • Code of Conduct, policies, guidelines
  • Network meetings, e-learning and training
  • Sustainability reporting platform

At the Group level, the Board is involved in climate issues by approving strategies, policies, acquisitions and potential divestments. At the Group level, we also conduct a comprehensive strategic risk analysis each year.
