Sustainability

Azelio strives to promote sustainable development with the provision of our long-duration renewable energy storage technology, through our company culture, and in our work processes and practices. Social, economic and environmental sustainability is at the core of everything we do.

Our commitment

No employee, customer, visitor, or member of society shall be injured, or endure any risk of illness or injury, due to Azelio businesses.

For Azelio, sustainable development has the meaning of protecting the environment by taking preventive actions towards contamination and impurities, adhering to environmental constitutions and other mandatory environmental requirements, and continuously raising our environmental goals to reach a higher level of achievement.

The environmental work performed within Azelio represents a significant part of our quality work.

Environmental impact

In 2020, Azelio commissioned the independent research institute RISE to carry out a life cycle analysis to determine greenhouse gas emissions from the company’s product TES.POD.

The institute’s report shows that the climate impact of Azelio’s system is 23 g CO2 / kWh, which is significantly less (29%) than that for lithium-ion batteries, and dramatically less (96%) than for diesel generators, which are both competing and complementary technologies. The study assumed the solutions supplied electricity for 13 hours per day for 25 years, and disregarded the environmental effects of generating the electricity required to charge the system.

The study does not account for the fact that Azelio’s system also delivers a significant amount of heat that can be used as energy in a variety of applications, contributing to further strengthen the climate profile of the solution.

A material with many benefits

Azelio stores energy from, for example, sun and wind, in an aluminium alloy and makes it available around the clock in the form of electricity and heat. Aluminium is an advantageous material both environmentally and economically, as it can be recycled repeatedly and does not lose storage capacity over time. Using recycled aluminium cuts out approximately 95% of the total amount of energy needed to produce aluminium from bauxite.

Human capital

Systematically improving the work environment is a natural part of Azelio’s operations to achieve efficiency and quality. The company works actively to minimise the risk of occupational injuries, accidents, and incidents, and carries out activities that promote employee health and job satisfaction. As part of this, the company continuously works with processes that aim to improve the everyday job situation of employees, enabling them to achieve a fulfilling work life and focus on the right tasks.

Work environment

All personnel management are trained in the areas of Work Environment and Psychosocial Work Environment (AFS 2015: 4). The need for training is reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Legislation and social party agreements are minimum requirements. Azelio aims to achieve the highest standards, and the company sees this as a profitable investment for the future, where work motivation and low sickness leave are direct benefits. Azelio arranges health insurance for employees, with access to quick support and specialist care.

The company is affiliated with the industry organisation Teknikföretagen, and has a collective agreement with the labour unions Unionen, Ledarna, Sveriges Ingenjörer and IF Metall.

Diversity

Azelio should be an attractive and developing workplace for all. The company works to ensure that all teams are gender diverse. The 2020 wage survey regarding comparisons of jobs that are to be regarded as equal or equivalent did not show any unreasonable wage differences between women and men. As an employer, the company must conduct goal-oriented work to promote gender equality and diversity. This means preventing and counteracting discrimination, utilising everyone’s skills, and respecting differences regardless of gender, age, ethnic or cultural background, religion or other belief, disability, transgender identity, or sexual orientation. All suppliers are evaluated according to the Azelio Ethics standard.
