How we work with sustainability

Our vision is to save our planet, one drop at a time, by providing the highest performing and most sustainable ware washing solution for commercial kitchens.

To fulfill that vision and work strategically, we have developed a sustainability strategy close to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and in support of Agenda 2030.

Our main objectives can be concluded in three prioritized actions: making a shift from regular plastics to biodegradable materials, minimizing the amount of stainless steel and welded components in our products, and lowering our products’ water consumption throughout the value chain.


SDG - the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our ambition is to contribute to all SDGs in all our activities but focus on those most relevant for our business and where we can contribute the most. For Nor:disk, this means focusing on goals 5, 6, 8, 12, 13, 14, and 17.

Goal 5 - Gender equality

We believe that gender equality and diversity in the organization increase innovation and employee engagement, which promotes our development and learning and in the greater perspective contributes to a more gender-equal industry.

Goal 6 - Clean water and sanitation

Nor:disk technology is based on minimizing water and chemical consumption and chemical handling. As we are facing a water crisis where a large proportion of the world’s population lacks access to clean water, it is important to minimize the use of clean water for sustainable development.

Goal 13 - Climate action

Our business consumes energy that causes greenhouse gas emissions. To reduce our impact, we use renewable energy sources for our plant and premises. Another important part is mapping our product’s impact through life cycle analysis. It’s important for Nor:disk to take measures that lead to reduced climate change. Nor:disk addresses defined goals and indicators related to CO2 emissions.

Our value chain

To achieve our goals, we work actively throughout our value chain - from raw material to the end-of-life of the product - as the entire chain has an impact on the environment. Our ambition is to leave as few traces behind us as possible.

We work in three different scopes, where we look at what we ourselves emit and affect, what the product's impact is during its lifetime, and how our suppliers work to reduce the environmental impact before the raw material reaches us.

GHG Protocol

Nor:disk started to calculate the carbon footprint in 2018 and it has been calculated according to the principles of the Greenhouse Protocol. The data has been gathered from Nor:disk´s (our) business, logistic and procurement, a survey for questioning on commuting and on technical specifications for the products. Some assumptions have been estimated. Measures to reduce emissions are developed and followed up annually.
