Risk analysis

The LINAK Group has a size and a business area, which is why there is a risk of environmental, climate, social and employee conditions, human rights, anti-corruption and bribery.

Within the environment and climate, continuous efforts are being made to reduce energy consumption, while developing technology in productions.

In social and employee relations, the game is on no employees being injured, physically or mentally, these risks uncovered by politicians and managers in the area.

The risk of violating human rights, anti-corruption and bribery is hedged by the partners' behavior in these with a code of conduct.

 

Due diligence processes

  • Environment and climate

       The LINAK Group protects the environment for customers:

  • LINAK offers low energy consumption and environmentally friendly materials in our products
  • LINAK aims to reduce the impact on the environment and minimize our energy consumption
  • LINAK is always working to use the best available technology in production

LINAK visualizes the development of energy consumption and invests in sustainable solutions and technologies. LINAK is continuously influencing employees' environmental awareness to achieve environmentally friendly behavior.

The LINAK A/S 5% gas reduction goal was not achieved. The leading project was postponed several times due to technical challenges. After finishing the building project LINAK are back on track and have achieved the targeted gas reductions the past fiscal year.

The LINAK A/S 5% electricity reduction goal was not achieved due to the fact that insufficient energy-saving activities were launched during that period, primarily based on the available technic not being sufficiently cost effective. This goal has also been restored during the past fiscal year where we have achieved the targeted reduction of energy consumption per. produced unit.

Reference is also made to the Enviromental Statement.

The LINAK Group respects the principles of international conventions such as the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights (1948) and the International Labor Organization (ILO), and the LINAK Group expects partners to share this view.

This means that partners must, among other things, ensure that:

  • The employees have freedom of association

The suppliers are expected to commit to an action plan with any. improvements under the Code of Conduct. If no progress is made, the LINAK Group reserves the right to terminate the cooperation.

The LINAK Group conducts regular audits with external partners to ensure that the Code of Conduct is complied with, which has been audited in the financial year 2018/19, none of these audits has given rise to the cessation of cooperation.
