Camfil aligns its strategy with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We have identified four goals that are the most relevant to our business that enable us to provide the most meaningful global contribution.
The UN’s 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) and related targets aim to fight inequality, end extreme poverty and protect the world in which we live. To achieve the SDGs, businesses must make significant efforts. They must adopt a sustainability mindset, anchoring sustainability in company strategies, core business activities and employee behaviors.
SDG 3 calls for actions to address determinants of health such as air pollution.
Camfil’s products and entire line of business revolve around helping our customers ensure healthy lives and promoting well-being for all ages. We do this by producing the highest efficiency air filters that remove harmful particles and contaminants in ventilated air and by providing air-pollution control systems that collect dust, mist and fumes for safer work environments. Whether for residential, commercial or industrial use, our products protect people, equipment, processes and the air we all breathe.
SDG 11 aims to reduce the adverse environmental impact of cities by 2030, including by paying special attention to air quality.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 90% of the world’s population lives in places exceeding WHO air quality guidelines. Camfil’s air filters and clean air solutions are some of the most energy-efficient on the market, and help purify the indoor air and create more sustainable buildings around the world where people live, study and work.
