After a number of life cycle assessments of our products and solutions we have clearly found that the use phase is – by far – where we can make the most significant contribution to climate change mitigation. However, in line with BeyondZero, we also believe that it is our responsibility to use our combined knowledge, experience, influence and creativity to minimize the negative environmental impact deriving from our operations long the entire value chain.
