Products and service
Our targets for products and service reflect the positive impact we aim to make, especially through design that takes the entire product life-cycle into account.
Our products and service targets
At Atlas Copco, we always innovate with a clear purpose and in response to real challenges that our customers are facing.
Developing highly efficient and sustainable products that meet the needs of our customers, society and the planet is the biggest contribution we can make to a sustainable future.

Following up our progress
Reduce carbon impacts
Atlas Copco takes a lifecycle approach to innovation. In 2020, we adopted a Group-standard for how to, during the design phase, measure a product’s carbon footprint throughout its lifecycle. The Product Carbon footprint tool assesses the carbon impact of different aspects, from choice of materials, to product use, as well as from the product’s recycling and disposal.
All projects for new or redesigned products must have targets for reduced carbon impact. In 2022, 97 percent of projects had such reduction targets.
How our targets relate to the UN Global Goals
Global Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Energy efficiency in our products and service is a key selling point for Atlas Copco. The main environmental impact is in our customers’ use of our products. All projects for new and redesigned products must assess the environmental impact of the product. Products are developed with a life-cycle perspective.
Global Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production
We strive to make production as efficient as possible and reduce waste. We seek to decrease the total waste produced. Our chemical handling follows strict protocols. Components that contain conflict minerals are not accepted and Atlas Copco monitors and screens its supply chain.
