Green operations

Our own environmental performance

Alfa Laval is addressing our internal environmental processes to make less impact and support sustainability, all gathered under Green Operations. The Green Operations activities are driven through our line organization, ensuring a long-term approach where these issues become a natural part of our work. To coordinate the initiatives the Environmental Council was founded in 2006. Green Operations include the implementation of Environmental Management Systems and improvements. We are focusing on a limited number of areas to get the most impact.
