Electrolux, Zanussi’s parent company has a recent Sustainability Report. The document details the brand’s targets for 2025 which include reducing CO2 emissions, water and energy. Electrolux also shares its progress on its previous goals.

Why does Zanussi have a middle score for Human Rights?

As a result, Zanussi receives a middle rating for our Human Rights category.
