At ASSA ABLOY, sustainability is enabled by their people.
With unrelenting commitment, cooperation and creativity, the company’s employees drive all sustainability initiatives, integrating ‘environmental sustainable behaviour’ into all aspects of the business process.
The ASSA ABLOY organisation has 48,500 employees, working in over 70 countries around the world. With every individual responsible for reducing their personal carbon footprint at work, the employees work together to create habits that will extend into communities and homes, and contribute to a more sustainable world.
The company’s human resources department strives to cultivate a dynamic and agile business environment that will push ASSA ABLOY to the fore. Thinking globally and acting locally, the Group harnesses a strong culture of local ownership and decentralised decision-making, while maintaining unified core purposes, values, and beliefs across the board.
With the values of empowerment, innovation, and integrity deeply ingrained in each employee, the team aims to encourage ethical behaviour in the workplace, increase diversity, maintain gender balance, improve talent management, and promote employee engagement. The 2018 organisation-wide Employee Survey highlighted some key strengths of ASSA ABLOY’s workforce, including a firm sense of employee empowerment, a well-functioning health and safety work environment, and a strong customer focus.
Implementing our values into our work
Saint-Gobain, a French company regarded as ‘the reference in sustainable habitat’, partnered with ASSA ABLOY for the construction of their North American headquarters in Malvern, Pennsylvania.
ASSA ABLOY provided six distinct access solutions for the building, each having attained an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), helping Saint-Gobain earn the LEED 2009 Platinum Certification for its use of sustainable products.
Improving sustainability invariably triggers a natural growth in business. Aware that the products they use are not only smart and practical but also positively impact the environment, customers are delighted to support ASSA ABLOY in their endeavour to implement sustainability across their operations.
