Alfa Laval Joins ABB’s Energy Efficiency Movement at COP26 Event


November 9, 2021

Alfa Laval, the company that delivers sustainable products and solutions for customers in energy, marine, and food & water, is now the first official member of ABB’s energy efficiency movement.

Recognizing the critical role that energy efficiency can play to decarbonize industry, Alfa Laval has made this public commitment to improve its own processes, in production, service and products. It includes setting the target of improving energy efficiency – measured in terms of megawatt-hours (MWh) consumed for each direct hour of operation – by five percent by 2023 compared to 2020. The announcement was made during an Alfa Laval event held at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland.

Launched in March of 2021 by ABB, the #energyefficiencymovement is a multi-stakeholder initiative to raise awareness and initiate action in order to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions to combat climate change. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), energy efficiency can deliver a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of more than 40 percent over the next 20 years, with 50 percent of that reduction coming from the industrial sector.

“We are very happy to join this important movement,” said Thomas Møller, President of the Energy Division at Alfa Laval. “Our innovative and proven solutions make a big difference. The challenge is to change the norms and drive the implementation of the technology in a wider and broader scale together with partners.”

“We appreciate Alfa Laval taking a stand on energy efficiency and joining the movement,” said Morten Wierod, President of ABB Motion. “Their commitment is inspiring and makes a real difference as businesses strive to help humanity reach a net-zero future.”
