Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Established in Denmark in 1933, today DEIF is a global supplier of green, safe and reliable control solutions for decentralised power productionmarine & offshore and wind turbines. DEIF has since its incorporation acted socially responsible and with an aim to enhance positive impacts – for example through the innovation of new products and services that are beneficial to society and enterprises themselves – and to minimise and prevent negative impacts.

Acting not just in active compliance with the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and international norms in our business dealings, DEIF’s goal is to move beyond compliance with a particular emphasis on environmental concerns.

Represented in key markets in Europe, Asia and the Americas, the DEIF Group is dedicated to CSR and constantly works to ensure that our activities are conducted responsibly on a global scale. DEIF’s business approach is based on the presumption that culture, practice, ethics and moral standard differ from one country to the next. 

Despite the differences, our actions and business practices always take their starting point in the DEIF values and Code of Conduct. These describe in detail how we interpret the UN Global Compact intiative which we joined officially in 2016.

We want to be recognised for our responsibility, honesty and high integrity in all markets and in everything we do.
