Sandvik Coromant appoints new head of sustainable business
Camilla Nevstad Bruzeluis will drive global sustainability strategies at the metal cutting firm
To bolster its Sustainable Business Program, Sandvik Coromant has appointed Camilla Nevstad Bruzelius as its Head of Sustainable Business. Joining in March 2022, Nevstad Bruzelius will be tasked with driving Sandvik Coromant’s sustainability initiatives forward, as the company aims to make metal cutting more environmentally friendly for people, the planet and business profit.
With 20 years of experience at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, most recently as deputy head of the Global Agenda Department, sustainable business has long been at the core of Nevstad Bruzelius’s career. She has vast 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 multilateral cooperation. Camilla has also served as head of the Sustainability Group at the Swedish Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York and as chief of staff to the Minister for International Development Cooperation and Climate.
Now, as she takes on a new challenge at Sandvik Coromant, Nevstad Bruzelius will use her wealth of experience to drive and develop the company’s own sustainability initiatives. Sustainable development forms an important part of Sandvik Coromant’s business strategy. The company’s mission is to develop metal cutting solutions and services that use fewer natural resources and consume less energy, while making their 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.
As head of sustainable business, a new role for Sandvik Coromant, Nevstad 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 program, which allows customers to sell their used cutting tools back to Sandvik Coromant, who recycle the solid carbide to make new tools.
“Appointing a Head of Sustainable Business is the next step in our journey towards making lasting, sustainable change,” said Magnus Ekbäck, Vice President for Strategy and Business at Sandvik Coromant. “We’ve 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 being more sustainable in their own operations.”
