“Our sustainability practices are important to us and I am honoured that Axis Communications received this prestigious award,” said Fredrik Nilsson, Americas vice-president, Axis Communications. “The BIG Sustainability Awards recognize innovative and outstanding companies, initiatives and products that are reshaping the business world and changing perspectives on sustainability. I’m glad that Axis is part of the change and that we’re able to lead by example.”

Axis says its objective is to take sustainability into consideration in all business processes throughout the value chain and it strives to “minimize its environmental impact, promote a healthy working environment, fight corruption and prevent human rights breaches”.

An example of how Axis conducts sustainable business practices is through their involvement with the UN Global Compact and the GRI. In 2007, Axis signed the UN Global Compact, which is credited as the world’s largest sustainable initiative, according to the company. The GRI, meanwhile, creates a standard for reporting to ensure measurable results called the G4 standard, Axis adds, and it helps organizations understand and communicate the impact of business on critical sustainability issues.
