Axis Communications (STO:AXIS)
Axis Communications today publishes its sustainability report for 2013.
In Axis’ fourth sustainability report, the company describes the year’s
successful work in the areas of environmental responsibility, business
conduct and social responsibility.
“Sustainability issues are an integrated part of Axis’ business
operations and I am happy about the progress we have made in terms of
minimizing our environmental impact, promoting good working conditions
and fighting corruption. Our employees’ commitment and efforts play a
very important role in ensuring sustainable and successful growth for
Axis in the longer term,” says Ray Mauritsson, President, Axis
Axis’ intelligent security solutions enable a smarter and safer world,
and Axis takes long-term social responsibility for how its operations
impact employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers, end users and other
important target groups. As global market leader, Axis aims to drive the
shift towards innovative security solutions, but also when it comes to
advancing corporate sustainability.
“Based on our position as global market leader, we want to serve as a
model for our industry, and many of our sustainability initiatives have
substantial commercial benefits for us as well as for our partners and
end users,” says Ray Mauritsson.
Business relations should be handled in a responsible, transparent and
trustworthy way. Environmental considerations pervade everything from
product development to logistics flows and the final stage of products.
Axis’ products and solutions feature leading edge technologies, which
are environmentally friendly and energy-efficient in the end-use phase.
The most important measures implemented by Axis during the year included:
· a comprehensive program for employees and distributors in order to
counter corruption, bribes and conflicts of interest
· continual audits of subcontractors; to ensure that they comply with
Axis’ requirements relating to environmental responsibility as well as
working environment and safety new requirements for component suppliers
and a new requirement concerning so-called conflict minerals has been
added to the code of conduct, which Axis applies for its suppliers
· two new configuration and logistics centers, in Suzhou, China and in
Memphis, USA, which will provide increased capacity in the important US
market and the presence in China will also mean greater proximity to the
suppliers that are located in the region and thus reduce transports
· phase-out of PVC in several products
· optimization and reducing the size of certain product packaging, which
will generate a positive effect both on the environmental impact of
transports and the volume of consumables
· entrepreneurial spirit, openness and commitment has been strengthened
through a variety of activities such as training in the company's core
values and international introductory courses.
