To preserve the earth's resources for future generations, we are moving to circular business models that eliminate waste and keep products and materials in use. Our Circularity Approach covers all stages of the product life cycle, from design and sourcing, through production and use, all the way to responsible end-of-life services.
To support our customers in meeting their circularity commitments, we have in place retrofit, take-back and recycling solutions and services that extend or give a second life to our products. Some examples include the recycling of large motors and the retrofitting of windmills, ships and robots. With this support, we ensure some of the world's most complex and critical infrastructure lasts longer and operates in the most efficient way.
We are assessing our Circularity Approach against the latest regulatory developments and key sustainability standards that address circularity and product performance.
Send zero waste to landfill while reducing waste generation by 2030
