Sustainability - 2024

Statement of corporate social responsibility in accordance with the Danish Financial Statements Act §99a


Business model

The LINAK® Group manufactures electric linear actuator solutions that ensure smooth adjustment of many different applications. Everything from healthcare to agriculture, comfort furniture, office furniture and industrial automation - the possibilities are almost endless.

At the LINAK Group, responsibility is about doing what you do best - and doing it properly. No company can work with sustainability without making conscious choices. We base our decisions on common sense and on step-by-step improvement. Therefore, LINAK works actively with five important areas:

  • We improve your life
  • We take care of each other
  • We take care of the environment
  • We are locally committed and globally conscious
  • We set expectations

These five core areas define our (LINAK) responsibility within sustainability.

After a thorough materiality assessment LINAK 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).

The six key areas are as following:

  • Carbon Emissions
  • Product Design and Circularity
  • Resource Use & Circularity
  • Employee Engagement
  • Sustainable Supply Chain
  • Customer ESG Expectations

Risk analysis

The LINAK Group has a size and a business area, where there may be risks associated with environmental, climate, social and employee conditions, human rights, corruption and bribery.

LINAK wants to meet environmental requirements in development and manufacturing and develop products with low energy consumption. In social and employee relations, the aim is for no employees being injured, physically or mentally.

The risk of violating human rights, corruption and bribery is hedged by the LINAK Ethical guidelines, and towards the suppliers by our supplier Code of Conduct.

Continuous measurements of the working environment are taken to ensure social and employee relations, the results of which have been stable for the financial year 2023/24 compared to previous years.

The LINAK Group will continue to work on the established initiatives next year.

  • Respect for human rights, anti-corruption and bribery
    The LINAK Group respects the principles of international conventions such as the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights (1948) and the International Labor Organisation (ILO), and the LINAK Group expects suppliers to share this view. The principles and expectations are described in the Code of Conduct.

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

  • The employees have freedom of association.
  • Work does not take place under duress.
  • They do not use child labourers.
  • Working hours do not exceed the requirements of local law.
  • They do not discriminate against employees.
  • They support preventive measures related to environmental challenges and work actively to reduce environmental impact.
  • They distance themselves from corrupt acts.

The Code of Conduct has been added to the supplier quality agreement, which must be signed by the suppliers. 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 2023/24, none of these audits have given rise to the cessation of cooperation.

The LINAK Group will continue to work on the established initiatives next year.
