As buildings are responsible for 40 percent of energy consumption and 36 percent of the CO2 emissions in the EU, the ability to reduce environmental impact of buildings will be key in order to reach set-up climate targets, in the EU and globally.
The products developed and sold by the companies in the Bemsiq Group are used in various building applications with the mission to accelerate the journey towards smart and climate neutral buildings hence sustainability is integrated in our fundamental business model.
Bemsiq firmly believes that a sustainable way of operating will be a means of increased shareholder value over time. We have hence articulated a clear policy on how we want to conduct our business following the people, planet, profit framework. This policy applies for all companies in the group.
It should be easy to work with Bemsiq and we shall be fully transparent towards customers, suppliers, partners and employees on how we conduct our business. A clear set of easily accessible and understandable policies is an important pillar in this ambition. In combination with Bemsiq’s corporate culture that permeate all companies in the group and the "tone-from-the-top" principle, the policies guide all employees in all holdings of how Bemsiq do business and behave responsibly.
solvatten is a Swedish innovation that helps families to clean water. Approximately one billion people live without access to clean water and electricity. That is, every seventh person. If you were one of them, you would need to spend about 4–5 hours each day to get water and fuel to heat and boil it clean. With clean water at home, the opportunity to get time to go to school or work increases, which is a way out of poverty.
Investment AB Latour started a collaboration with Swedish Solvatten in 2018 and Bemsiq joined the initiative in 2019. Since 2018 the Latour group has collected more than two million SEK that have gone directly to Solvatten containers transported to ongoing projects in Burkina Faso and Uganda. Latour's goal is to reach 3,000 families during a three-year period, which corresponds to approximately 24,000 people.
