Danfoss has announced five new global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), alongside ten new Regional Inclusion Councils, where employees can come together based on shared characteristics, life experiences or interests.The new Danfoss’ ERGs and Inclusion Councils reflect the company’s ambition to take a leading position on Diversity and Inclusion.ERGs are recognized as a central instrument for business growth. Danfoss ERGs provide employees with an outlet to help shape the organizational culture and create an environment of belonging through communities of shared identity, experience, and interests, as well as providing resources that empower leaders and teams to foster inclusion. Each Global ERG is sponsored by two executives, including a member of the Group Executive Team (GET) and a business or functional leader, ensuring D&I is embedded in Danfoss’s purpose and strategic priorities and fostering stronger inclusivity across the employee experience.The Regional Inclusion Councils represent global perspectives across all Danfoss regions to provide equitable solutions by identifying and eliminating systemic barriers.

We must do everything to ensure we do not exclude anyone who is able to help us fight climate change. We’re asking colleagues in the communities represented to join these groups, as well as allies who can champion along with their colleagues.”The five new Global Employee Resource Groups launched by Danfoss include:     • •Danfoss MULTICULTURAL & NATIONS – focusing on employees of all ethnicities/nationalities and allies     • •Danfoss GENDERS – focusing on employees of all gender identities (i.e., women, men, non-binary) and allies     • •Danfoss ABILITIES – focusing on employees of mental and/or physical disabilities and allies     • •Danfoss GENERATIONS – focusing on employees of all age groups and allies     • •Danfoss PRIDE – focusing on employees of the LGBTQ+ community and allies

Our people are the engine of our business, and we are reframing our approach to building a diverse and inclusive workforce. The more diverse our workforce is, the more diverse the ideas and experiences are while we engineer tomorrow to build a better future.”

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
