The report presents Lindéngruppen, its purpose and values, and how it adapts to the changing world. It describes how Lindéngruppen creates value, both financially and for the planet and our societies, and how this is driving towards the Group’s sustainability goals for 2030.

“We are proud, for the first time in the history of Lindéngruppen, to present an integrated Annual Report and Sustainability Report,” says Paul Schrotti, Lindéngruppen CEO. “We have taken major steps forward during 2021. By setting Group targets for 2030 and developing a Value Creation Model that enables us to measure and value our economic, environmental, and social impact on society, we have accelerated our journey to fulfil our purpose and transform our business.”

Report theme: Symbiosis

This report is inspired by the project and exhibition ‘Symbiosis’ at Färgfabriken. Symbiosis is Greek and can be translated as ‘living with’. The original meaning is a biological description of two organisms being mutually dependent on each other. For Lindéngruppen the concept of symbiosis captures how we relate to the world around us and create value together with our companies and partners.
