The employee survey results for 2021 will be shared across the entire organization, with each department expected to make an action plan for improvement on the results. The level at which employees agreed with the two statements in 2019 was above the global benchmark.

that 100 percent of our projects for new or redesigned products started 2020 or later should have a target set for reduced carbon impact. The first year of reporting is in 2021.Each division must also set a target for the percentage of its projects that will achieve significantly reduced carbon impact. A significant reduction is at least a 5 percent reduction in carbon impact in comparison with the most comparable product. The divisional targets are followed up annually internally.
One is that employees agree with the statement that the company takes a genuine interest in employees’ well-being. This should continuously increase. In 2019 the degree to which employees agreed with the statement was at 69. The 2021 employee survey will give a comparison figure. There was no survey in 2020.
Another Group target is to have a balanced safety pyramid. This means that reports of near misses should be higher than reports of minor injuries and reports of minor injuries should be higher than recordable injuries. After setting the target in 2018 we achieved it in both 2019 and 2020.
Recordable injuries are defined as those in which the employee has experienced any of the following: the employee has lost consciousness, is restricted from working, requires medical treatment, has an injury diagnosed by a physician, where recovery to pre-injury fitness takes more than six months, or the employee dies as a result of the incident.
