Environmental Award for 2021
This year the winner of the Environmental Award is Compressor Technique Service division’s lubricant team for their outstanding performance in preserving the environment for the future. The award is established to inspire the organization to create business value while reducing the environmental impact.
Through dedicated teamwork, the Compressor Technique Service division’s lubricant team managed to reduce the environmental impact from oils used to lubricate the screw elements. The lubricant team is an interdisciplinary team of marketing, purchasing and engineering professionals, who collaborates closely with suppliers. The team applied a cradle-to-grave perspective to reduce the environmental impact, and came to the conclusion that using synthetic oils instead of mineral oils reduced the CO2 footprint from the oils and compressors significantly.
