AddSecure’s first sustainability report
The report sheds light on how our company and our IoT solutions contribute to a safer and smarter world. In the report we present our impact on the environment and society at large, our achievements in 2020, as well as strategies and ambitious goals for the future.
Data will reshape the way we produce, consume and live. Benefits will be seen in every single aspect of our lives, ranging from more conscious energy consumption and product, material and food traceability, to healthier lives and better healthcare. It is the basis for many new products and services, driving productivity and resource efficiency gains across all sectors of the economy.
Our mission is to create a safer and smarter world together with our customers. We are a fast-growing company whose ambition is to create long-term financial value without compromising environmental and social values. Sustainability guides us in our daily operations as well as in our innovation and growth strategies. Sustainability inspires us to create profitable smart business in new ways and by new means.
Harnessing technology is no silver bullet, but these developments could be an essential building block in the ability to achieve the Global Goals this decade.
"Unlocking Technology for the Global Goals", World Economic Forum 2020
Internet of things (IoT), blockchain and AI are having a transforming impact on economies and societies. At AddSecure we believe in the ability of these new technologies to create a smarter and safer world, and to reach the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Using the Agenda 2030, we have mapped out how our solutions contribute to the SDGs today – and to identify areas needing smart and safe solutions for tomorrow.
Take a look at how our customers use our solutions to make a sustainable impact:
Guaranteeing fresh, clean water requires reliable systems. Norrköping uses a flexible and safe communications solution to perform the task.
The joint solution increases the safety of students and employees and give parents peace of mind.
In a short period of time, the Swedish transport company Götene Kyltransporter (GKT) has dramatically reduced fuel consumption through improved eco-driving.
Through a collaboration with Jämtkraft and AddSecure, the 2019 World Biathlon Championships in Östersund was sustainably powered, with a lower environmental impact.
The City of Gothenburg takes safety and security seriously, and has therefore chosen to upgrade its security and communications systems at several of their schools.
AddSecure and Affärsverken have developed a solution that provides data and analysis for better decision-making about the distribution grid.
As technological advances bring us daily benefits, they also raise complex questions and concerns about how technology will affect society and our planet. At AddSecure we have prioritized four areas to manage our direct and indirect impact.
As the world becomes increasingly digitalized, information and communications technologies, data centers and network services are emerging as an important source of energy demand in their own right. At AddSecure we continuously work for a more efficient use of energy and an increasing share of carbon free energy sources.
Smart use of resources
Waste of electrical and electronic devices is one the fastest growing waste streams. Containing a complex mixture of materials, components and hazardous content, these devices can cause major environmental and health problems. Moreover, the production of modern electronics requires the use of scarce and expensive resources. At AddSecure we strive to enhance resource efficiency by improving the production, collection, treatment and recycling of our electronic devices and consumed goods.
Our customers count on our ability to handle data and communications in a secure way, keeping it safe from unauthorized access or alterations. At AddSecure, we strive to outperform our customers’ expectations and to constitute a thought leader in data quality and information security.
Diversity fosters innovation and problem solving by pushing us to look at things from different perspectives. AddSecure is an international, fast growing company and we strive to make the most of our differences. We believe in internal teamwork and partnerships with our customers.
