Atlas Copco, a provider of sustainable productivity solutions, was recently recognized as one of the world’s most sustainable companies in the annual Global 100 list.
The list, presented at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Jan. 22, ranks companies that prove they are increasing productivity while using less resources. Atlas Copco is ranked 23rd overall, up from 46th last year, and is number one in the machinery industry. It was the ninth time Atlas Copco appeared on the list.
“We strive to deliver products and services that are energy efficient, safe and ergonomical with minimal impact on the environment,” said Mala Chakraborti, Atlas Copco vice president Corporate Responsibility. “We continue to increase our focus on sustainability to enhance customer productivity and create value for our shareholders.”
Atlas Copco’s sustainability goals include boosting customer energy-efficiency by at least 20 percent between 2010 and 2020, decreasing CO2 emissions, working actively to eliminate corruption, and promoting access to clean drinking water in countries in need.
