“Despite the many challenges posed by the pandemic, 2020 was a year when we were able to step up our efforts to integrate sustainability into all our business plans and strategies. Making this progress on both Group and company level is an important part of realising our vision to develop successful companies that lead the transition to a sustainable world. I hope that you will find the report an interesting read.” – Paul Schrotti, CEO Lindéngruppen.

Our sustainability highlights 2020

  • Lindéngruppen played a key role in developing a new Children’s Rights and Business Workbook
  • Beckers unveiled a new vision to become the most sustainable industrial coatings company
  • Colart put sustainability at the heart of their New Product Development Process
  • Alex Begg stepped up work to remove chemicals from their supply chain
  • Höganäs launched their Climate Neutrality Roadmap 2045

The new report is aligned with the World Economic Forum White Paper ‘Measuring Stakeholder Capitalism – Towards Common Metrics and Consistent Reporting of Sustainable Value Creation’ and its four focus areas Governance, Planet, People and Prosperity. This means that the scope of the Group’s reporting has expanded to cover all material core metrics and disclosures suggested in the WEF White Paper.

The report includes Case Stories from all companies in the Group. These cases are illustrative of the work that is carried out on a daily basis and our aim is to provide a clear focus on tangible examples of the important work going in each Group company.

A new and improved structure

The report has a new landscape format with links to facilitate navigation and is structured around two clear sections:

  • Part 1 – Lindéngruppen: Description of Lindéngruppen, Highlights, Owner and CEO Statements, Strategy, and Company Snapshots – to provide engaging communication.
  • Part 2 – Sustainability Governance: Our Commitments, Management, Materiality, Risk Management, Performance/Data – to provide technical detail and proof points.
