In Demant, we strongly believe all large-scale companies can do their part to combat climate change, biodiversity loss and other challenges facing our planet.

Therefore, we are committed to reducing our climate impact and support the Paris Agreement. 

We have the following ambitions to ensure that we continuously address our own impact on the climate and environment:

  • We care for nature and our biodiversity through a circular mindset
  • We reduce, reuse, recycle and replace – with focus on packaging and waste
  • We introduce sustainable materials in our operations, productions and products
  • We support production and sourcing of green energy and strive for ambitious emission reductions

We take important steps forward in our journey to work with our climate impact with an ambitious commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative, baselining our scope 1 and 2 emissions and mapping our scope 3 emissions through a spend-based materiality assessment. 
Demant has joined the Science Based Targets initiative, committing to set targets in line with what climate science deems necessary to limit global warming to 1.5°C. SBTi guidelines prescribe that the Demant Group must reduce our own direct and indirect emissions (scope 1 and 2) by 46.2% in 2030 with 2019 as baseline. Based on this, we have set the target to reduce minimum 50% in 2030.
We report on our own direct and indirect emissions (scope 1 and 2) in our Sustainability Report here.

Responsible production is central to our application of a circular mindset. Challenging business as usual, we work innovatively with materials in our operations, production, products and packaging.
Among other, we continue to improve ways in which we can design greener products.

As part of our efforts, we also work to limit waste and find new ways to reuse and bring value from the waste we create. From tools for production to packaging for products, we introduce more sustainable materials and methods.
