Drive a sustainable business

In order to achieve a circular economy and be able to offer customers sustainable solutions, all parts of our value chain - purchasing, manufacturing and transports - must reduce the resources used and thus lower the carbon dioxide emissions. Lindab should be a workplace that employees are proud of.

Sustainable sourcing

Sustainable sourcing is the integration of social, health, safety, ethical and environmental factors into the process of selecting suppliers. Lindab have zero-tolerance for any corruption and violations against human rights.

Suppliers of raw material, like steel, stands for the biggest environmental impact. Therefore, it’s important to prioritise cooperation with steel suppliers who drive development towards fossil-free steel and have good carbon dioxide intensity values.

Lindab is working towards only sourcing from democratic countries in Europe.

Lindab will:

  • Early adopter of fossil-free steel in order to reduce our CO2e emissions.
  • Get 100 percent of suppliers1) to sign the Code of Conduct.
  • Certify all suppliers in regards to sustainability1).
  • Define emission reduction targets for Scope 3 in line with Science Based Targets in 2024.

1) Suppliers in low and medium risk countries with a spend of at least 100 KEUR and in high risk countries with a spend of at least 25 KEUR, are included. 








Sustainable production

Energy efficiency is a main priority in all our facilities; production units, offices and stores. By focusing on energy efficiency, we will save recourses and therefor lower the environmental impact and costs.

Other focus areas for sustainable production are: increase the use of renewable energy, decrease total energy consumption, lower scrap rate, use upcycling for waste and use smart packaging.

Lindab will:

  • Reduce CO2e emissions in Scope 1 and 2, calculated in relation to the sales, with 50 percent in 2030 compared to 2019.
  • Define absolute emission reduction targets for Scope 1 and 2 in line with Science Based Targets in 2024.
  • Reduce scrap rate by 50 percent by 2030, compared with 2019.







Sustainable transportation

One of Lindab’s largest sources of emissions is transportation. The impact of transportation can be decreased by choosing low-emission alternatives and by changing the distribution setup.

Where possible, fossil free alternatives like HVO or electrical vehicles will be used.

Production of bulky products is being moved from central to regional units to get closer to the customer and reduce the need for transport.

Lindab will:

  • Use 100 percent renewable fuel or electrical vehicles by 2040.
  • Switch to company cars using renewable fuel or electricity by 2030.
  • Have 100 percent of transport contracts1) to include environmental requirements by 2025.
  • Collaborate with customers and suppliers to create transport solutions with a focus on reducing the environmental impact.

1) Suppliers in low and medium risk countries with a spend of at least 100 KEUR and in high risk countries with a spend of at least 25 KEUR, are included.
