Sustainability

Breathing air is essential for life

It’s an instinct – the  very first thing we do when we are born. Naturally, we expect the air to be clean, but we do not instinctively question the quality of the air we breathe. The scientific community and global media continue to report on the links between human health and poor air quality. Both national and international organizations are addressing this problem. As the health and economic impacts become more apparent, they strive to set new standards and raise awareness.

At Camfil, we view it as our responsibility to support these global initiatives so that you can take a breath with total confidence.

Protecting the health of people, processes & the environment

Camfil has been a sustainable company from day one. For more than half a century, we've helped people breathe cleaner air. We are convinced, together with our customers, employees and stakeholders, we can shape a truly sustainable future.

We have a strong in-house culture of sustainability born and bred in the Nordic market and embedded in everything we do globally today. Being sustainable gives us a competitive edge. But for us, it is a natural approach to our work that directly benefits our customers. We firmly believe the best solutions for our customers are the best solutions for our planet too. That’s why every step of the way – from design to delivery and across the product life cycle – we consider the impact of what we do on people and the world around us.

Through a fresh approach to problem solving, innovative design, precise process control and a strong customer focus, we aim to be more efficient in all aspects so we all can breathe easier. Find out more and discover how Camfil can help you to protect your people, processes and environment.
