Asker will reduce Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions and collaborate with suppliers and customers to provide more resource and climate-efficient products and services.

Healthcare has negative climate impact both via emissions in the production of disposable products and via the high volume of waste generated after the products have been used.

Asker's central role in the value chain creates opportunities to positively influence more sustainable patterns of consumption and production. Asker's companies help healthcare companies choose more climate-efficient products. Another ambition is to exert influence on suppliers to reduce the environmental and climate impact of their products.

  • Reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement
  • Develop products and services with reduced environmental impact and collaborate with suppliers to ensure that suppliers focus on reducing the environmental impact of their products
  • Collaborate with organisations, external networks and customers to reduce plastic waste in healthcare
  • Reduce the use of chemicals that have a negative impact on people and the environment
