Sustainability is an integral part of Axis’ long term strategy. With a specific focus on business conduct, social and environmental responsibility, we seek to minimize impacts, create a healthy working environment, eradicate corruption and ensure respect for human rights.
We’ve published an annual sustainability report since 2010, and since 2014 we have followed the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4. Axis is also a signatory of the UN Global Compact and wholeheartedly supports its ten principles on human rights, anti-corruption, the environment and labor.
Sustainability throughout the value chain
Creating a more sustainable world begins with design. That’s why sustainability is one of our key drivers when developing new network video products and solutions.
With sustainability embedded in our approach, we have successfully introduced several innovative, energy-efficient technologies, including our award-winning Lightfinder technology. We have also reduced product packaging, improved logistics flows and formed partnerships with suppliers based in or close to our markets.
In our product design, we seek to use environmentally friendly, easily recyclable materials wherever possible, and we carry out life cycle analyses (LCAs) to understand our products’ full impacts.
Business ethics throughout the value chain
We are committed to conducting business in an honest, fair and transparent way. In addition to being signatories of the UN Global Compact, we have our own Code of Conduct to ensure rules are followed.
As a company that exports globally, we have to be vigilant about corruption. Our stance on this is clear: we do not tolerate any form of bribery or corruption. This is reinforced by our anti-corruption policy, our educational program for all employees and our Standard Distributor Agreement.
