“Providing customers with the most innovative, energy efficient, safe and ergonomic products is a key part of our business model,” said Mala Chakraborti, Atlas Copco’s Vice President Corporate Responsibility. “Integrating sustainability in our operations generates great value for both industry and society.”
Atlas Copco’s innovative, energy-saving products include its variable-speed compressors, a technology that the Group pioneered in 1994 that enables compressors to run only at the speed necessary, cutting energy consumption. In 2013, Atlas Copco launched the patented VSD+ technology, which slashes energy use by more than half compared with traditional compressors. This groundbreaking compressor has received an overwhelmingly positive customer response.
Atlas Copco is also listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index for 2015/2016, and is ranked number 11 globally in the Newsweek Green Rankings, one of the world’s foremost rankings on corporate sustainability.
