At Mycronic, we're dedicated to integrating sustainability into all parts of our operations and business. Our sustainability initiatives focus on the areas where Mycronic can make the greatest difference. This way, we can contribute to the transition to a more sustainable electronics sector and future-proof our business. Efforts began during 2020 to establish a clearer sustainability strategy, with long-term Group-wide sustainability goals.
Regionalization, digitalization, automation and sustainability are global, underlying megatrends that push development in the electronics industry forward and contribute to a shift in industry dynamics. Understanding these trends, and acting accordingly, is key to keep our customers at the forefront of the electronics industry.
Mycronic’s CEO Anders Lindqvist, together with 1,293 other CEOs from more than 100 countries, has signed a joint UN statement calling for international cooperation to be mobilized across borders, sectors and generations.
Sustainability is a key element of Mycronic’s business strategy and we are continuously working to improve our management of the sustainability challenges that we face. A lot of work remains, but we continue to lay a solid foundation with the aim to contribute to a more sustainable electronics industry.
The EU-funded research project SOMIRO began at the turn of the year with the aim of demonstrating the world’s first energy-autonomous swimming milli-robot. Mycronic is one of eight participants working to develop technology that will help monitor processes in precision agriculture and reduce the environmental impact of farming.
The growing use of electronics increases the carbon footprint of the electronic industry’s value chain. For Mycronic, while this is a challenge that must be addressed, it is also an opportunity, as we can be an enabler for cutting emissions in the sector.
