Sustainability at AddSecure
By securing critical communications and data in a connected world, AddSecure has an opportunity to contribute to society’s sustainable transformation.
We live in an increasingly connected world. Our planet already has more devices connected to the Internet than it has people. Internet of Things (IoT) and data has the potential to reshape the way we produce, consume, and live. Benefits will be seen in every single aspect of our lives, ranging from more conscious energy consumption and product, material, and food traceability, to healthier lives and better healthcare. It is the basis for many new products and services, driving productivity and resource efficiency gains across all sectors of the economy.
As sensor-based and internet-connected devices multiply, they will handle even more life- and business-critical applications. This makes it more important than ever to handle data and communications in a secure and sustainable way.
We are a fast-growing company with an ambition to create a safer and smarter world. Sustainability guides us in our daily operations as well as in our innovation and growth strategies. Sustainability inspires us to create profitable smart business in new ways and by new means.

Smart business in new ways and by new means
As technological advances bring us daily benefits, they also raise complex questions and concerns about how technology will affect society and our planet. At AddSecure we have prioritized four areas to manage our direct and indirect impact.
Secure critical communications and data
Cyber threats seeking to damage data, steal digital assets, or disrupt digital life in general, is constantly evolving. We combine reliable IoT solutions and 24/7 operations with uncompromising, secure hardware and software to provide secure critical communications and secure data across all AddSecure’s offerings.

Smart power to limit global warming
As the world becomes increasingly digitalized, information and communications technologies, data centers and network services are emerging as an important source of energy demand in their own right. Our carbon strategy has been designed in support of the Paris agreement and the goal to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
Smart use of resources – creating more value out of less product
Waste of electronic devices is one the fastest growing waste streams. Containing a complex mixture of materials, components and hazardous content, these devices can cause major environmental and health problems. Moreover, the production of modern electronics requires the use of scarce and expensive resources. By using service-based business models based on principals to reduce, reuse, and recycle our products, we aim to improve profit margins, recurring revenues and customer relations all while identifying new business opportunities and lowering our environmental impact.
Diversity fosters innovation and problem solving by pushing us to look at things from different perspectives. AddSecure is an international, fast-growing company and we strive to make the most of our differences. We believe in internal teamwork and partnerships with our customers.
