Environment

Atlas Copco’s main environmental impact is during the use of its products according to life-cycle analyses.

Therefore, incorporating life-cycle perspective and environmental considerations into new product design is a goal and a high priority. The target is to implement environmental management systems in all operations. All product companies and major customer centers must be certified according to the international standard on environment ISO 14001.

Life-cycle analyses also show that the most significant environmental footprint is related to carbon dioxide emissions during the use of the products and to a lesser degree, during transport and in production. Energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions are the most significant indicators, but Atlas Copco also tracks and reports performance on water consumption and waste.

Atlas Copco considers important environmental issues such as water stress, climate change and material and energy consumption in its operation.
