United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Sandvik is committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have defined the goals that are most relevant to us and to which we actively contribute. Below are some examples.
SDG 3 – Good health and well-being
Exera® medical wire, used in medical applications, helps to improve people’s lives. Our battery-driven mining equipment improves the air quality underground.
SDG 5 – Gender equality
Sandvik has set up a 2030 sustainability goal to have at least one third women in managerial positions. Today it is 18.2 percent.
SDG 7 – Clean energy
We produce renewable energy at our sites in France, Poland, Germany, the US, Zimbabwe, India and Sweden.
SDG 8 – Decent work
One of our long-term sustainability goals is zero harm to people. AutoMine® mining automation solution removes people from hazardous areas to a safer and healthier environment.
SDG 9 – Industry innovation
Sentusys™, our intelligent system for online monitoring of tubes, improves safety and process control.
SDG 12 – Responsible production
Our goal is to drive the shift towards a circular society. We have extensive recycling schemes and buy-back programs in place. Sandvik steel is derived from 84 percent recycled material.
SDG 13 – Climate action
We will halve our CO2 impact by 2030. Gasoline direct injection (GDI) technology helps reduce fuel consumption. Our green factory concept includes reduced CO2 emissions.
