Sustainability Program

The underlying rationale behind all our sustainability activities is to create value for our main stakeholders: customers, shareholders, employees, suppliers and the community. The purpose is to become a more valuable partner to our customers and all our stakeholders. At FLSmidth, we aim to align sustainability with business operations as part of our global business strategy. Having signed the UN Global Compact in November 2008, FLSmidth committed itself to supporting the United Nations' ten principles regarding human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, as well as reporting on progress made.


Responsible sourcing

FLSmidth's Code of Supplier Conduct communicates our expectations to our suppliers, recognising that conducting business in an ethical and sustainable manner is crucial for developing long-term partnerships.

Sustainable Supply Chain

As a company operating throughout the world and with most manufacturing outsourced, FLSmidth spends a large share of its earnings in a global network of suppliers. We have a large impact and with that comes responsibility. We are committed to honouring the commitment we made to UN Global Compact in all aspects of our business, and responsible sourcing is one of our CSR focus areas.

Quality management principles form the basis of good CSR work. FLSmidth is committed to adopting a responsible manner in its efforts to maintain a high level of product quality while driving down costs responsibly.

Our daily work with suppliers around the world is based on the strong relationships between a high standard of occupational health and safety, labour rights, environmental control and the quality of the product.
