Developing with responsibility

Working on a global market, Leine Linde puts great emphasis on being a good partner, acting socially and environmentally responsible in all contexts. We work closely with our suppliers and partners to achieve sustainable business. Consequently, we would like to set an example:

  • The company's electricity consumption is powered by fossil-free sources where production has tough environmental requirements. The majority of the electricity consists of renewable sources, such as solar, wind, water and biopower
  • We actively work to minimize carbon dioxide footprint, calculated in accordance with the international standard GHG (Green House Gas Protocol)
  • Of course, wherever possible, we select the best technology and materials from an environmental perspective.

Environmental management is an important part of our publicly available business policy. Leine Linde’s management system has been certificated according to ISO 9001 since 1995, and ISO 14001 since 2002. We constantly improve our processes to develop and deliver true value to our customers in the most efficient manner.
