s grasps the very core of the company; to affect public space and generate creative meeting places.

ng Kong, Singapore, South Africa and Russia.

es. An overall perspective is the aim of our environmental work. In all our planning, manufacturing, consumption and disposal we are considering both mankind and the environment. Our environmental policy shows the situation of today as well as our future
direction. We are actively working with our environmental targets, measuring these and are working out activities in order to reach the targets.
