What matters?

Sustainability? Triple bottom line? CSR?

What does this mean? For SKF it starts and ends with SKF Care – including the dimensions of Business, Environment, Employees and Communities. Long-term success is about balancing these aspects properly. For SKF, all aspects need to be considered in the decision making process.

In order to maintain performance, we need to focus on the most important topics and deal with them in a systematic approach. Based on the latest materiality analysis, and referring to GRI standards for sustainability reporting the most important topics are:

Economic category

  • Economic  performance
  • Anti-corruption and  
  • competition law

Environmental category

  • Energy and emissions
  • Materials
  • Water
  • Effluents and waste
  • Environmental  compliance

Social category

  • Employment and labor management relations
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Training and education
  • Diversity and equal opportunity
  • Non-discrimination
  • Human rights
  • Supplier social and environmental assessment
  • Socioeconomic compliance

For an brief description of these aspects and what makes them important over SKF's value chain, please refer to our Annual Report on page 127 pages 129-142.

The topics have been established from the overall risks and opportunities managed by SKF, in combination with formal and informal stakeholder dialogues which we describe more here.
