Sustainable materials and chemicals
Our extended goal is to develop long-term sustainable products. In 2018–2019, we will evaluate the materials used in our products today, such as steel, polyester and plastic, and based on this, look at what products can be made more sustainable. We will also implement a new manual for research and development, which will include both sustainable material and a list of material that is not to be used. The goal is for 80 percent of the material used in our products to be sustainable by 2030.
Furthermore, a goal that we want to achieve no later than 2030 is for the next generation of products to use 10 percent less energy in use compared with the 2017 product range. This mainly pertains to our stairlifts, ceiling lift systems and mobile lifts. In 2018, we will select a number of products for life-cycle analysis.
