has appointed Camilla Nevstad Bruzelius as its new head of sustainable business. She is tasked with driving Sandvik Coromant’s sustainability initiatives forward, as the company aims to make metal cutting more environmentally friendly.
With 20 years’ experience at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, most recently as deputy head of the Global Agenda Department, sustainable business has long been Ms Bruzelius’s focus. She has a wealth of experience aligning with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, supporting international environmental and climate initiatives and further issues related to energy, circular economy and multi-lateral cooperation.
Now, as she takes on a new challenge at Sandvik Coromant, Ms Nevstad Bruzelius will use her wealth of experience to drive and develop the company’s own sustainability initiatives. The company’s mission is to develop metal-cutting solutions and services that use fewer natural resources and consume less energy, while making its customers’ applications more economically efficient.
In fact, Sandvik Coromant has already developed its own sustainability goals for 2025, which include becoming more than 90% circular and halving the carbon impact of its production processes. Ms Bruzelius will champion these sustainability goals and communicate their progress with internal and external stakeholders, while also focusing on areas such as Sandvik Coromant’s cemented carbide circularity programme, which allows customers to sell their used cutting tools back to Sandvik Coromant to be recycled.
Magnus Ekbäck, Sandvik Coromant vice president for strategy and business, said: “Appointing a head of sustainable business is the next step in our journey towards making lasting, sustainable change. We have implemented many activities over the years, having started recycling initiatives for our carbide scrap as early as 1970. But we know there is always more we can do. With Camilla’s guidance, we hope to reach our ambitious sustainability goals and help our customers become more sustainable in their own operations.”
