Sustainability plays a key role in the innovation process
Valmet’s R&D is integrated into our sales processes, and our sales teams also regularly participates in R&D meetings. All new product innovations are discussed and evaluated by business management to decide which projects are further developed.
With our research and technology development work, we aim to ensure an advanced and competitive offering of process technologies, automation and services for our current and future customers, enhance raw material efficiency, and promote the use of renewable raw materials.
All Valmet´s new products and services have a positive environmental impact. We follow the market demand for more environmental efficient technologies by monitoring the share of orders received of new products and services as the KPI for Environmental Product Innovation. Valmet´s target is to increase the orders received of new products and services >25% by the end of 2018.
