Precision and control
Fast Heating AEG-Electrolux induction cooktops are much faster than conventional electric cooktops as well as being faster than gas. The electromagnetic field virtually turns the pot into a heating element, dramatically reducing heat up time and giving instant control for very low simmering or rapid boiling. Safety Cut-Off Switches zones and cooktop off if no settings are selected after approximately 10 seconds. Moisture or boiling liquid spilling over onto the control panel, immediately switches off all cooking zones. If one of the cooking zones is not switched off after a certain time or if the heat setting is not modified, the relevant cooking zone switches off immediately. Power Function This function (when selected) supplies an extra high heating boost for large quantities of food or liquid.
Induction Cooking with Magnetism induction cooktop surfaces will not heat up unless a ferromagnetic pot is placed on the element. This is a safe cooking system as no heat is generated at the cooktop, the heating only occurs in the pot. Power Share Management The cooking zones share the maximum power available to them. When the power function is activated this reduces the heat setting of another zone. Timer All cooking zones can use the two time functions at the same time; e.g. as a countdown timer to sound an audible signal upon completion of elapsed time or automatically shut off after the elapsed time. Overheating Protection In the event of overheating (e.g. when a pan boils dry) the cooking zone automatically switches itself off. STOP+GO The STOP+GO function simultaneously switches all cooking zones that are switched on to the keep warm setting and then back to the heat setting that was previously set. This function can be used to briefly interrupt and then continue the cooking process e.g. to take a telephone call.
Safe Cooking With induction cooktops there is no conventional heating element, so the cooking surface stays much cooler and therefore safer. Also, if the pot is removed from the cooking zone, that zone immediately switches off. Automatic Warm Up Function All cooking zones are equipped with an automatic warm up function. The automatic warm up function sets the cooking zone to the highest setting for a certain period of time and then automatically switches back to the cooking setting that was originally set. Child Lock The induction cooktop will not operate until the child lock has been deactivated. Suitable Cookware The induction system will only operate when suitable cookware such as stainless steel, enamelled cast iron, steel pots and pans all with ferromagnetic properties are used. Glass, ceramic, copper and aluminium are not suitable for the induction cooktop. NB: Features may vary depending on model. Please refer to product specifications.

The world may be a global village, but at Electrolux, we recognize that people have different values and preferences and markets have different needs. Our organization is decentralized to give our business units the greatest exibility in meeting these. Local ownership also ensures our global mission is implemented and that learning can be leveraged across markets. But decentralization doesnt mean lack of common vision or shared values. All manufacturing units with at least 50 employees are mandated to be certied according to ISO14001 and policies are in place to guide actions group-wide. We report and monitor progress on common indicators. See pages 12, 21, 22, 23 and 26.
Creating lasting value
Social and environmental responsibility is not new to Electrolux. In fact, our investments in environmentally-sound products extend over decades. A new trend, however, is that consumers are starting to demand it.
I notice this trend often when I talk with both our consumers and our retailers. They recognize the role energy-lean appliances have in tackling climate change. I believe that the time for sustainable products has arrived. Today, just under a quarter of our gross prots in Europe comes from products with a strong sustainability prole. Our aim is to build on our competitive advantage in environmental excellence to increase this share. This generates lasting value for households, for the environment and for the Electrolux brand. I am proud of our achievements. We have dedicated signicant resources human and nancial to sustainable innovation. Continuing to meet or even exceed our customers expectations in this area is a challenge to which Electrolux has a long-term commitment. The right climate for change To raise the prole of our most environmentally-sound appliances, every business sector is launching a green range of products. They will proactively market and sell the most efcient appliances in terms of energy and water consumption. As standards of living improve around the world and more households acquire appliances, we have to minimize the impact this has on our planet by helping consumers leapfrog to energy-lean technologies. Our efforts dont stop at products. We are improving the efciency of our operations. Group Management has committed to cutting energy use across all our factories by 15% by 2009. This will also help us reduce our CO2 emissions and improve our oper-
ating margins. This is a rst step. By becoming systematically aware of our energy use, we can reduce still further. With our footprint becoming increasingly global, our aspiration is for the imprint we leave to be a positive one environmentally, socially and ethically. Through our Responsible Sourcing Program, we are engaging suppliers to pursue the standards dened in our Code of Conduct and Environmental Policy. In China, Latin America and Eastern Europe, we are actively raising workplace standards and enhancing business practices. We can be part of the solution. Electrolux is driving the shift to more energy-efcient products. The technology already exists to help us lead more climate-smart lives. Whats needed now are strong market incentives that support green consumer choices. I urge governments to explore how tax credits can help to reduce societys carbon footprint. We live in a globalized, resource-constrained age. Transforming these constraints into opportunities will allow us to create lasting value.
Communicating with the consumer
With the Ultrasilencer Green, we aim to change the perception that high wattage equates to greater cleaning performance, by promising the same cleaning effect with lower energy. Vacuum cleaners and other small appliances are not encompassed in the EU energy labeling scheme that is otherwise compulsory in large appliances.
The use phase represents about 75% of the products environmental impact. In its lifecycle, cutting energy used to operate the vacuum presents our greatest opportunity to save CO2. On average, a vacuum is used an hour a week and is expected to service a home for ten years. In its lifetime, the Ultrasilencer Green can save: 364kWh of energy; enough to make a 60W light bulb burn 24 hours for 253 days 320kg CO2 emissions Approximately SEK 700 (73) off energy costs over 10 years, equivalent to saving a third of the purchase price. (*Compared to a 2000W vacuum cleaner)
Average 2000W VC Ultrasilencer Green
Recycling is vital for an energy-lean society. The recycling process has a net positive impact on CO2 by recovering energy. Wherever within the European Union a vacuum cleaner is purchased, there is a system in place to take back the appliance it replaces. Easy recyclability was a determining factor in the choice of materials for the Ultrasilencer Green. We attained 93% recyclability and most remaining material can be incinerated to recover heat.
Make a change for a better climate communicates that smart purchasing choices can impact consumer carbon footprints.

The target for material recovery according to WEEE is 70% for small appliances (and 80% for large household appliances). As of 2007, all Member States, as well as Norway and Croatia have transposed the Directive. In Switzerland, WEEErelated legislation is also in place. Electrolux is compliant in all these countries.
UN Global Compact
Electrolux is a member of the United Nations Global Compact. This brings together companies, UN agencies, labor and civil society to promote ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. All Electrolux policies, including our Code of Ethics, Workplace Code of Conduct, Policy on Countering Corruption and Bribery and Environmental Policy are in line with these principles. Electrolux submits an annual report to the ofce of the Global Compact, Communication on Progress, which shows how we are applying the principles. We are also engaged in a network of Nordic companies which meets regularly to share experience and discuss issues of mutual interest in relation to the Global Compact and social responsibility.
Our Communication on Progress
Increasing diversity among employees and dialogue with stakeholders are two key areas of our work with corporate social responsibility.

Building a sustainable brand
Embedding sustainability into the DNA of a global company takes commitment and shared vision. Here four senior Electrolux representatives look at where weve come from and brainstorm on the challenges ahead.
On changing consumer expectations: Henrik Sundstrm (HS): Were consumer-focused its a core element of how we do business. More and more, consumers want to contribute to a better world through the purchasing choices they make. We take that into consideration in the way we work, our product development and marketing. Lars Gran Johansson (LGJ): People are increasingly asking for more environmentally smart products. Its our mission to be one step ahead. Anthony Ford (AF): Iconic products like Ultrasilencer Green meet that need. And we also have a strong base of energy efciency to our products. Sustainability has become a way of life. I dont think we can look at it any other way. Maria Strannegrd (MS): I agree. Eco is regarded as hip and cool. Its not a fad; its an ongoing trend. On building trust in our brand: LGJ: Appliances have to last a long time, so people appreciate a well-known company thats at the forefront of innovation. You have to make sure you have good products that consumers appreciate, and that if theres a problem you will x it. We want to stand for quality and leadership. We also want to be perceived as a good neighbor somebody you trust to do the right thing and whos here for the long term.

Awareness of, and compliance with, the Workplace Code of Conduct are assessed through the ALFA (Awareness-Learning-Feedback-Assessment) system and on-site audits. Internal and external audits also monitor implementation of the Environmental Policy. A key priority for 2008 is to ensure group-wide policies are communicated across the organization. Particular focus will be placed on the Code of Conduct and the Electrolux Code of Ethics, which formalizes the principles for our relations with employees, shareholders, business partners and other stakeholders. Ensuring that everyone at Electrolux upholds high social and environmental values is vital in building the trust on which our brand success depends.

Data covers 100% of our production facilites. Levels of awareness of the Code of Conduct, and how it is organized and communicated to managers and employees are high throughout the Group. Although implementation levels for managment practices are also high, there is room for improvement in 2008.
Every safety incident is preventable with proper procedures, training and hands-on engagement by both manager and employee. One step at a time, we will reach our end-objective of zero accidents at our facilities.
Every factory within the Group has procedures to ensure a safe workplace. The factorys general manager and ultimately the head of the business sector have responsibility to see that they are effectively managed. Workplaces are monitored according to the Code of Conduct and management systems such as OHS18001. Of our 53 factories, 37 apply a standardized production method called the Electrolux Manufacturing System (EMS). Safety is one of nine indicators used to gauge procedures within EMS. The safety indicator is measured in incidents per 200,000 manhours, or the TCIR. In 2007, three business sectors worked towards a 10% global TCIR reduction target from the previous year. North Americas goal was a TCIR of 1.5. Three of four sectors achieved their objective. Best practice in North America Electrolux has demonstrated stable incident rates since groupwide data collection began in 2003. During this time, Electrolux has also opened factories in China, Thailand, Poland and Mexico. Our journey is best exemplied by Electrolux in North America. When we started in 2003, the industry recordable injury rate was about nine and we were at about 16. Today were at about one, says Keith McLoughlin, Head of Electrolux Major Appliances in North America. Today, our plant in Juarez, Mexico has a TCIR that ranks third of eight production locations in North America. Developing a common approach in Asia/Pacic Our three factories in China and Thailand have also demonstrated improved performance (all of which have a TCIR under 2), with improvements in Australia (TCIR 4.1 and 11.2, down 30 %). Weve taken what North America has done and were building on it, Tom Bell, who manages the health and safety program for Electrolux Asia/Pacic, explains. With our presence in low cost countries, we cant cut corners. In fact, we are off to a better start than our older factories. Work continues in two plants in Australia to enhance the safety mindset. As people become older, they are more susceptible to injuries, for example from lifting. The average age of our factory workers in Australia is 44. Our focus is therefore on wellness issues such as the importance of exercising and good eating habits. To develop a more coordinated approach in Asia / Pacic, general managers, safety and HR managers of their ve plants will meet in Hangzhou, China for an H&S summit in May 2008. Employee ownership of safety McLoughlin explains the key to safety: It just cant be a top-down management issue. Its got to be ingrained in the culture of all employees on the shop oor level. With this mindset, activities will continue at each facility to embed safety values and behaviors.
Cases like Jiao-jie* are not uncommon. While Chinas legal working age is 16, socio-economic pressures mean that protecting children from work that is potentially exploitative, hazardous or harmful does not always take precedence. Under-age labor is a zero tolerance issue for Electrolux. In 2007, we uncovered 21 children between the ages of 14 and 16 employed by four suppliers. In all such cases, our priority is to protect the interests of the child. Each child has a story to tell Our investigation into why Jiao-jie was working and how she was recruited found she was employed under the same conditions and had to deliver the same results as older colleagues, involving shifts and long hours. When found, she was taken off the assembly line, says Andrew Feng. We were able to contact her parents and prepare her return home. In dialogue with Jiao-jie, her parents and the supplier, it was agreed she could continue to receive a salary provided she resume her schooling. Electrolux conducted a follow-up visit to her village six months later and found her returned to her family and safe. Supplier monitoring In under-age labor cases, non-compliant suppliers are given immediate notice by our responsible buyer that corrective mea-
sures must be taken, failing which the supplier contract is subject to termination. Within a month, they are re-audited, sometimes unannounced, to verify hiring procedures, and to search for additional under-age workers at the facility. In 2007, all affected suppliers recognized the severity of the situation and revised their routines. No supplier contract was terminated due to under-age workers. Every child is followed up With the exception of four children who left the premises before we were able to investigate further, Electrolux followed up all the child workers uncovered. Of the 21 children identied last year, 15 returned to their parents. Like Jiao-jie, nine of these were provided a salary and promised a job once they come of age. Six of the 15, however, refused the salary payment offer. Some parents are cautious about being perceived as indebted to the employer. They choose not to be tied to the factory in that way, says Henrik Dahlstrm, Director of the Responsible Purchasing Program. In 2008, Electrolux will continue to dialogue with a non-governmental organization with indepth knowledge of China and issues relating to the protection of children, to further develop our response.

Spirited away in Italy
Sustainability is a cornerstone of Electrolux in Italy. Under the banner Green Spirit, we are building long-term engagement, not only with Italian consumers who want their brand of choice to walk the talk, but with employees, government contacts, trade associations and suppliers.
Driven by innovation, design and an increased product range, Electrolux is a leader in the Italian appliance market. Our standing is enhanced by being a shade greener than our competitors, thanks to a product life-cycle approach and strong internal engagement. The only way to achieve real environmental protection is through an integrated approach that can affect the entire life cycle of an appliance and that involves the whole value chain, says Gianfranco Schiava, Head of Electrolux Zanussi Italia. Electrolux in Italy has launched the Green Spirit program to engage suppliers, employees, trade associations and end consumers in the Groups commitment to the environment. Tapping into growing consumer interest, Green Spirit includes a series of new products to help consumers lead climate-smart lives. Our green product features go beyond energy efciency to help consumers reduce both waste and bottled water consumption. Engagement must start from within. Electrolux Floorcare and Professional sectors were integral partners in developing the Green Spirit program internally. Together, we are contributing to the group-wide 15% reduction targets for energy. We have also dened targets for water savings and reducing waste. The experience gathered here is serving as an inspiration for our factories all over Europe. (See p. 10)

Dialogue delivers fair outcomes
The restructuring program at Electrolux will relocate over half our production to lowcost countries. During this process, we aim to be transparent and inclusive, showing respect for individuals. Their experience will affect our reputation globally.
When a factory closure is announced, our rst priority is to consider the impact on employees. Consulting all stakeholders in a timely manner, including labor union representatives, local, national and regional politicians and government authorities, is key. While nobody relishes plant closure, Electrolux is committed to dealing with the process responsibly. Benets of engagement Simon Thomas, HR manager at Spennymoor, UK, due to close at the end of 2008, explains the benets of early engagement with staff: The process of the investigation works really well because there is a gradual acceptance of the situation throughout. It is a genuinely open approach and ensures that all the angles are covered, giving people the condence that the right decision is reached, even if its an unpalatable one. Keeping employees informed on the progress of negotiations is vital, advises Jon Sindt, Managing Director of the recently closed plant in Fredericia, Denmark. You have to keep up a high level of communication. Every time we agreed on something we called all the employees for a big meeting in the canteen and gave an update on where we were and what we had agreed upon. Closing a factory is difcult for all involved, however, and sometimes constructive dialogue is not possible. This was the case in Nuremberg, Germany, where the experience taught Electrolux to not underestimate the difculty of communicating facts in such situations. With investment in employment support, re-training and pre-retirement advice, 551 of the 1,320 people who retrained found new jobs, a further 132 took early retirement and 68 agreed to part-time contracts.
Changing production patterns
At Spennymoor and Fredericia, employees and managers worked together during the investigation phase to explore ways to reduce the protability gap. When the decision was taken to close, retraining and job searching opportunities were offered to employees, alongside a nancial package. Good re-employment prospects in the local area contributed to open and friendly negotiations with the labor unions. An investigation has been announced in February 2008, into the competitiveness of two refrigerator factories in Italy Susegana and Florence.
Fredericia, Denmark When investigation into the protability of Fredericia was announced in early 2007, production volumes had been low for some time and did not cover the xed cost base of the factory. The decision to close followed and labor unions and management reached a nancial agreement quickly. The last scheduled working day was December 21st, 2007. Wage increases, a bonus for employees with over ten years service and an attendance bonus to encourage employees to stay during the wind-down of the factory were offered. The result was that absenteeism actually went down during this period unusual for a closure. Michael Lassen, union representative at Fredericia, describes the approach taken by Electrolux during the process: Electrolux was honest and transparent and when the decision to close was taken, the company put all its efforts into helping workers get a new job. In total SEK 43 million was invested in the Fredericia closure. By February 2008, fewer than 15 of the 150 people who worked at Fredericia were jobless.
Spennymoor, UK Spennymoor, UK is due to nish production in December 2008. After a two month investigation into the factory making freestanding cookers and built-in ovens, the decision to close was made in December 2007. According to Reg Bell, a senior union representative at Spennymoor, a hallmark of the investigation process was transparency: The investigation could not have been more open. We looked at all the major savings we could [make] to bridge the prot gap with new production facilities in Poland, but in the end we were not able to compete on wages. There was a feeling amongst some that whatever we did, the decision had been made to move to Poland, but we were given every opportunity to examine any possibility to sustain the business at Spennymoor. Unions were involved in selecting the outplacement provider to identify new job opportunities and organize retraining as well as pre-retirement and job application advice. It is estimated that 90% of employees will nd new work. Total investment made by Electrolux in the Spennymoor closure is SEK 390 million.
