Sustainability

What started as an idea to help a friend, has led to a global company that is improving lives all around the world. Using solutions to move people, in their work and their lives. This goal to improve lives does not just stop with our products, it is built into everything that we do.

Our roots in our Danish culture, our family heritage and our values help drive us. Not to always take the easier path, but the right one; for our customers, our employees, and our planet. Though thinking sustainable has always been a part of our decision making, we have been making significant steps to ensure our biggest impact on this planet is improving lives with our products.

No matter what we do, what or who we work with or where we are in the world, we all need to care for the environment and minimize the negative impact we have on the climate.

 
Bent Jensen, CEO & Owner, LINAK A/S

In 2012, my family and I made an important decision for the LINAK® future. We initiated a generational plan to secure that the business stays in the family, and that the values that describe our family-owned business continues. When it comes to investments, we think long-term. At LINAK we feel a great commitment to our employees and the local area, which is why we keep the headquarters and production in Denmark, and we support activities in the local community. We also feel a great commitment to our customers, they are the reason for our existence.

Turning words into action

After a thorough materiality assessment, we decided to focus on six key areas to drive our sustainability initiatives within the Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) categories, which also support and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). By incorporating these initiatives into everything we do, from product development and operations to supply chain and collaboration with our customers, we will achieve an even greater impact for the environment and the people our products help around the world every day.
