Water management at Electrolux. What's the next step?

Tuesday 28 August | 09.00-12.30 | Room: Departure: Entrance FH

Electrolux is a global leader in professional and household appliances. The global water strategy will be presented as well as the methods for water accounting and for assessing the water footprint of products. In 2017, we responded to the CDP Water program for the first time achieving the A- rate. 

The visit will be moderated by Johan Kuylenstierna, Vice Chair Swedish Climate Policy Council, Adjunct Professor, Stockholm University.

In brief:

• Electrolux journey to set a context-based water strategy for its operations in 50 factories 

• The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) based approach to assess the water footprint of products and the environmental impacts of freshwater consumption over the entire life cycle of a product (raw materials, the product assembly, the use and disposal phase)

• The impacts of power production mix over water sources due to energy consumption during the use phase of a product’s lifecycle

There will be time to ask questions and engage in a dialogue. A light lunch will be served.
