Atlas Copco, a long-time leader of sustainable productivity solutions, has once again been included on the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations list. The list recognizes companies that are committed to integrating sustainability into all levels of operation, adding value to customers, the industry, and the entire global community.
In 1994, Atlas Copco introduced their variable speed drive compressor, creating a compressor that adjusted speed to meet the demand needed at a given time, eliminating excess energy costs. Three years ago, they launched their patented VSD+ technology, reducing energy by more than half compared to traditional compressors.
Atlas Copco was the only company from the Machinery category to be included in the top 100, and ranked 34th overall. This is the tenth time the company has appeared in the Global 100 list. They were also listed as number 11 globally in the Newsweek Green Rankings this year for corporate responsibility.
