Alfen makes its presence felt regarding the UN Sustainable Development Goals
In addition to the company's products and services that are fully focused on enabling the energy transition, Alfen considers it to be its responsibility to further bolster its impact and - together with its paramount stakeholders - to align its approach to socially responsible entrepreneurship to the four UN objectives related to sustainable development. In order to measure our impact with regard to socially responsible entrepreneurship, we started in 2020 to disclose our most important performance indicators for each focal area as described in our 2019 annual report. Those key performance indicators are the following:
For SDG7 – Affordable and Clean Energy:
Possibly avoided CO2 emissions attributable to the use of Alfen's EV charging stations as well as the potential number of households powered by PV solar parks for which Alfen has supplied the microgrid solution.
For SDG8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth:
Performance in a safe working environment as determined by the Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate, as well as the absenteeism percentage.
For SDG9 - Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure:
Insight thanks to sharing Alfen's investment in R&D, together with the impactful innovation examples.
For SDG12 - Responsible Consumption and Production:
The results of Alfen's Operational Excellence programme.
Alfen has disclosed its impact since 2020. For an extensive overview of our impact, see page 14 of the 2020 Annual Report.
