“We all share the responsibility for driving development in a more sustainable direction,” said Group CEO Christian Nielsen of DEIF. “As a supplier to energy-producing industries and businesses, DEIF naturally has a special obligation, but this will require an effort from us all. We must be willing to embrace fundamental change – and to make the investments needed.”
DEIF is continuously working to reduce resource consumption in its own operations. The new factory in Skive will play a key role in this; it is designed to be as sustainable as possible and will be used for responsible local manufacturing of the electronics used in DEIF’s products. These products are increasingly used in power generating plants that are wholly or partially based on sustainable energy sources.
In addition, the company will commit to defining and reaching ambitious climate targets under the UN SBTi (Science Based Targets initiative) programme. The targets must be based on valid climate research and be verifiable by a third party, and this ambition cannot be fulfilled without a major, coordinated effort by DEIF and the company’s partners.
