Electrolux said products with the best environmental performance accounted for 22% of total sold units and 35% of Electrolux gross profit in 2010. Sales of Green Range products, with the highest energy and water efficiencies, have been progressing steadily since their roll out in 2008. These findings are reported in the Electrolux 2010 sustainability performance review, Sustainability Matters.

The online Sustainability Matters annual report is built around a clickable GRI index, allowing readers to drill down to the Group’s response to various sustainability issues. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guideline is a sustainability standard for reporting performance on environmental, labor, and human rights practices and societal engagement.

“The report not only outlines our strategy and how we intend to achieve it, it describes the issues most relevant to our business and how we work with stakeholders to stay on top. Never before has our sustainability reporting been so interconnected with the Annual Report,” says Henrik Sundström, vice president of Sustainability Affairs in Electrolux.

The report shows Electrolux has cut energy use by 25% since 2005, and set 2014 targets for transportation (15% carbon reduction from transport), and water use (20% reduction) with long and short-term product targets for energy, water, and chemical use to follow in 2011.

“In 2010, we began the process of developing a blueprint for actions to strengthen our sustainability commitment. We improved our grasp on emerging global challenges. We sharpened our insight into how these will affect consumer needs and business conditions. 2011 will mark a shift in speed for Electrolux,” says Keith McLoughlin, President and CEO of Electrolux.
