Quality and environmental awareness permeate everything we do at LKAB. Quality is and remains our most important competitive advantage.
Quality does not just relate to products, however, but also to all the activities within the company, large and small alike. LKAB's work is characterised by environmental consideration, which means for example that we now sort 89 percent of all our waste. Thanks to increased awareness and vigorous measures, discharges of particulates, sulphur dioxide and fluorine have been halved since 1980 – while pellet production has more than tripled over the same period.
We are aware of our responsibility, as we produce the largest emissions of greenhouse gases in Sweden. We have therefore set ourselves an ambitious goal, to reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases compared to 2015 levels by 12 per cent by 2021.
