Campaign Green Range

All product development at Electrolux is based on comprehensive insight into the sophisticated needs of consumers. Across the globe, interest is growing in products that are sustainably manufactured, use less energy and water, and can be recycled. As a leading brand of energy- and water-efficient products, both for consumers and professional users, Electrolux can capitalize on this trend.

With its Vac from the Sea campaign, Electrolux has raised people’s awareness of the impact of plastic waste in the world’s oceans at that same time as there is a shortage of recycled plastic. The campaign, which is linked to the strategy surrounding the marketing of the Electrolux Green Range of vacuum cleaners, has strengthened the Group’s leading position in sustainability.
