Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Contributing to sustainable development

The world is facing difficult challenges. The good news is that it has united to overcome them, and DEIF is making an active effort to contribute.

Supporting the UN SDGs

We actively support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which set the course towards a sustainable future, for example by taking climate action by reducing emissions and pollution from power generating equipment. This is our home turf. This is where we will make our greatest contribution with our customers and partners.

Our green ambition

We want to be a global trendsetter in climate-friendly products. We want to be the go-to partner for green and clean solutions. And we want to be the number one enabler of energy efficiency. This green ambition will guide us in all aspects of our business and help us contribute to the green energy change while also achieving profitable growth with our products and global presence.

Value-based culture and high ethical standards

We are working to ensure sustainable development in other areas, too. Taking our value-based culture with high ethical standards as a starting point, we strive to ensure fair trade, uphold UN principles on human rights, labour rights, and the fight against corruption, and source components that do not contain minerals from conflict regions. And much more.

We wish to make a difference

Every day, we work to achieve sustainable growth in every aspect of our business, and in society as a whole. This is the cornerstone of our 2030 Vision, and we firmly believe that it will help us contribute to a better future. In the words of DEIF CEO Toke Foss: “We want to make a difference, and we CAN make a difference, and this wish to make a difference shall be the foundation for the long-term development of DEIF.”
