Governance and stakeholder engagement

Sustainability at Evac is led according to a clear governance model, and our work is strongly based on materiality. Cooperating and engaging with our stakeholders is a key element in our journey to become a beacon of sustainability in innovative waste and water technologies.

Our governance model

The Board of Directors (BoD) of Evac Group approves the company’s fundamental sustainability principles and targets align actions with the targets and agenda of the Group’s owners and follows up on progress. The overall strategic responsibility for Evac’s sustainability performance lies with the CEO. Sustainability-related information, metrics, and actions are discussed in the Group Leadership Team regularly.

The operational implementation of Evac’s sustainability ambitions is led by the Head of Marketing, Communications, and Sustainability, who reports to the CEO, including chairing Evac’s internal sustainability core team (ESG Team) as ESG Manager. The ESG team comprises representatives of several functions, such as quality and supply chain management, research, finance, and product line management, and provides substance matter expertise on relevant sustainability topics. The team reviews and monitors trends and Evac’s sustainability-related targets and performance.

All Evac employees share the everyday execution of sustainability-related activities


Evac’s sustainability program and targets are based on materiality. We completed our first materiality assessment in 2021. The assessment confirmed that Evac’s most relevant sustainability topics include advancing the circular economy and offering sustainable solutions for both marine and urban environments. At the same time, we must ensure that our products contribute to climate action and that our own operations are managed in a responsible manner.
