OUR WAY OF WORKING FOR A SUSTAINABLE SHIFT

At Sandvik Rock Tools we are determined to take action when it comes to sustainability. We are on our most important journey to date - to make the mining industry as sustainable as possible and secure the necessary minerals we needed to make the shift towards a sustainable future. This report, that we call the “Our Way Report”, is created to give our customers, employees and other important stakeholders an annual overview of where we stand in terms of the progress of our sustainability efforts.

Sustainability Goals

Sandvik Rock Tools has three clearly defined focus areas for our sustainability work: We Lead the Way, We Build Circularity and We Shift Climate.


We do not have all the answers, and we are constantly learning and developing our approach and methods. Why? For the good of our planet, as well as our business.
