STOCKHOLM, March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in access solutions, has today published its Sustainability Report 2020. During 2015-2020, the Group successfully completed its sustainability program and exceeded the majority of the targets for health and safety, energy, water and materials efficiency while reducing waste generated. A new ambitious sustainability program has been set for 2025. The new program builds on the momentum and progress from the Group's successive five-year sustainability programs. The new program has raised ambition level across all indicators and complements ASSA ABLOY's long-term climate commitment to halve emissions by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050.
"Sustainability is vital to economic and industrial development and it is a strategic priority for ASSA ABLOY. Overall, I am proud of the progress we have made in sustainability, against our targets to 2020. Though we still have a lot to do, we are on a journey, and our new ambitious targets to 2025 and long-term climate commitment to halve our emissions by 2030 and be net-zero by 2050 will be our roadmap. This demonstrates our willingness to lead our industry to a more sustainable future, and will further improve our competitiveness with more sustainable products, solutions and operations," says Nico Delvaux, President and CEO ASSA ABLOY.
