Sustainability creates business opportunities. For Beijer Alma, the connection between successful business operations and corporate social responsibility is obvious. In addition to contributing to a better world, our sustainability work creates new business opportunities, cuts costs, reduces risks and allows us to meet the demands and expectations of stakeholders within and outside the Group. Our work focuses on five target areas:
- More efficient use of resources
- Waste and systematic environmental work
- Reduced environmental impact
- Safe and stimulating work environment
- Upstanding member of society
