Electrolux, parent company of AEG and Zanussi, has released its 2021 Sustainability Report, which has revealed that the company has exceeded its sustainability goals for a second consecutive year.

Amongst other successes, the report found that last year, Electrolux reduced its absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions (direct and indirect in operations) by 78% compared to 2015, which has led the company to stand four years ahead of its 2025 plan for the science-based target of 80% reduction.

The UK also saw a decrease in scope 3 emissions (when products are in use) by around 20% compared to 2015. This reduction has set Electrolux well on its way to meet its science-based target to reduce its scope 3 emissions by 25% in 2025.

The report covers the company’s progress on its sustainability targets according to it’s For the Better 2030 sustainability framework, launched in March 2020.

Electrolux UK & Ireland general manager, Luke Harding, said: “The sustainability framework guides our journey to achieve a ‘Better Company, Better Solutions and Better Living’ within society and allows us to become climate neutral throughout our value chain by 2050.

“Our focus and commitment to this has put us four years ahead of target in reducing our greenhouse emissions in operations and we will continue to build on this fantastic result to pioneer sustainability in the UK.”

In 2021, Electrolux gained recognition for its sustainability leadership with a prestigious ‘A’ score for its actions on climate and water as well as a Supplier Engagement Leader by the global non-profit CDP.

“I am particularly proud of the progress we have made to decrease UK emissions, and the leadership recognition we received from CDP as a result,” said Mr Harding.

“We will continue to adapt our sustainable innovation approach in the years ahead to meet the needs of future generations.”
