Environmental, Social and Governance


Creating a more secure world, protecting what we value most

Allegion helps people with security, wherever they live, work or visit. We have three strong bike security brands: AXA, TRELOCK and KRYPTONITE.

AXA Bike Security

For more than 115 years, AXA Bike Security has made every effort to optimally protect cyclists and their bikes. As true cycling fans, AXA Bike Security know exactly what cyclists need to take to the road safely and confidently. Our designers transform the latest preferences and developments into user-friendly, sustainable products.

AXA Bike Security


TRELOCK is a traditional brand from Münster, the cycling capital of Germany. It is one of the oldest German accessory brands and one of the most well-known brands in the bicycle industry. The TRELOCK team continues the traditions of the brand, which is over 160 years old. They also take innovation in bike locks, lighting and displays very seriously.



Kryptonite began with a mission more than 40 years ago. Although bikes and bike security have changed greatly since then, our goal remains the same: to protect what is important to cyclists. We continue to develop smart, serious security solutions with constant innovation and unceasing dedication.



At Allegion, we understand how vulnerable the earth and the environment are, which is why we aim to reduce our environmental impact to a minimum with ambitious Environmental, Social and Governance targets.


“At Allegion, we’re dedicated to keeping people safe and secure while protecting the planet. Together, we can create a world where everyone can move seamlessly.”

John Stanley, Vice-president of Global Portable Security

Sustainable development goals

We have selected six goals that are most relevant to our company and the three cornerstones of our sustainability strategy: Environment, Social and Governance (ESG). We support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to make the world a better place. The 17 goals for 2030 have been agreed by all 196 United Nations (UN) member states, including the Netherlands. Thousands of organisations and millions of citizens across the globe were asked to help define the SDGs.

  • SDG 3 Good health and well-being: ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
  • SDG 5 Gender equality: achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
  • SDG 8 Decent work and economic growth: promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
  • SDG 12 Responsible consumption and production: ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
  • SDG 13 Climate action: take urgent action to combat climate change and its effects.
  • SDG 17 Partnership to achieve the goals: strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.

Our ambitions:

  • All our locations should run on carbon-free electricity by 2030.
  • We aim for a 25% reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
  • We aim to be fully carbon neutral by 2040.

Environmental: Expedition Zero

Minimum footprint, zero waste – no wasting

Our planet is the only home we have, and we need to protect it together. That’s why we’re committed to reducing our environmental impact. We are taking steps to reduce our ecological footprint and to avoid wasting resources unnecessarily. Our offices and factory in Veenendaal (200 FTE) already run on 100% green electricity. Charging stations for electric cars are installed in our parking spaces.

EU production

We are active in the European market and already manufacture locally in Europe (600 FTE). We have factories in France, the Netherlands and Poland. This greatly reduces our CO2 emissions during transport. Manufacturing locally increases the probability that raw materials and semi-finished products will be of local origin.

Saving energy

To help us reach our goals, we have carried out energy efficiency audits. These identified where we can save energy, for example by replacing equipment with more efficient models. We have installed energy-efficient LED lighting with sensors, which only turns on if someone is present. We have replaced the compressors in our factory in Veenendaal. The heat generated in the compressors is collected as a residual product and fed back into our central heating system.

No single-use plastics for packaging

With our packaging program, we aim to reduce the volume of packaging we use, as well as eliminating single-use plastics. We have optimised our consumer packaging step by step, and we have the goal that all outgoing transport packaging and packaging materials do not contain single-use plastics wherever possible.

Reducing waste

We are actively working to reduce the volume of waste we produce. We run a waste reduction program, which includes reducing the volume of packaging and paper we use, maximising waste separation in our offices and factories, increasing our recycling efforts and optimising material reuse in our production processes.

Our ambitions

  • We aim to have all consumer packaging plastic free by 2025.
  • We aim to use at least 20% recycled materials in our products and packaging by 2027.
  • We aim for a 20% reduction on total waste to landfill by 2030.

European Packaging Pledge

The European bicycle industry believes it is time for change

That’s why we have united behind a common vision for the creation of a circular economy for packaging. This is in line with the goals of the European Commission. For packaging we aim to avoid waste and pollution, to keep materials in use for longer and to retain the value of materials and resources. The goal of all these measures is to protect our natural ecosystem. As a co-signatory of the Packaging Pledge, we have promised to work together with our supply chain partners to ensure that all packaging in the supply chain is reusable, recyclable or compostable.

We believe that this initiative is an important step towards strengthening the CSR agenda of the bicycle industry and that it demonstrates a high level of ambition in Europe.

Social: Because we care

Great place to work

We believe that our success is measured not just by our financial results, but also by the impact we have on the world around us. That’s why we accept our responsibility to society. It means we are committed to protecting all those who use our products and all those who work for us by creating an inclusive workplace where everyone feels respected and valued.

Quality and safety

We manufacture our products in a socially responsible way and we comply with all environmental regulations and health and safety standards. We continually monitor our compliance.


We value diversity in all aspects of our company, from our workforce to our customer portfolio. We recognise that mixed teams perform better and we promote an inclusive and cooperative workplace.

Local communities

We are aware that we are part of a wider community. That’s why we are actively involved with our local communities by building up strong relationships with the people and organisations around us. By manufacturing locally, we create employmentopportunities close to home.

Committed employees

We are aware that our employees are of immeasurable value and that committed employees are essential to our success. We carry out an annual employee engagement survey to ensure that we meet the needs and expectations of our employees.

Healthy lifestyle

Some examples in our organization of supporting a healthy lifestyle are:

  • We offer employees a discount on a gym subscription.
  • We provide fresh fruit on a daily basis.
  • Given the fact that we are active in the bicycle industry, it is only logical that our employees have the opportunity to purchase a company bicycle through a fiscally attractive arrangement.

Green Team

Our colleague Erik van der Hout is an ESG specialist

He founded the Green Team, which consists of a motivated group of people who represent a variety of perspectives within Allegion. “The multifunctional Green Team is the foundation of the sustainability culture at Allegion,” says Erik. “As an ESG specialist, I lead and support the Green Team as they work to promote the topics in the ESG strategy within our organisation. The team encourages people to adapt their behaviour, so that a culture arises in which sustainability becomes part of everyone’s daily work.”

Governance: Responsible Citizen

Maximum impact - Partner of choice

As a socially responsible business, we understand that good governance is essential to the success of our company. We employ strict ethical and integrity standards in all our activities and we comply with all relevant legislation and regulations. We aim to make a positive impact on the world around us by embracing governance practices that promote sustainability and responsibility.

Code of conduct

Our code of conduct describes the ethical and legal standards that our employees, suppliers and partners must observe in their business activities. We carry out supplier audits in high-risk countries to promote awareness of, commitment to and adherence to ethical and sustainable business practices in our supply chain.

Powerful partnership

The key to success and to creating a meaningful impact is to work together with our partners in the industry. We believe in the power of partnerships and cooperation to help us achieve our common goals and to promote sustainability.

Responsible Sport Initiative (RSI)

The World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI) has launched the Responsible Sport Initiative (RSI). This platform helps sporting goods companies implement uniform corporate and social responsibility standards efficiently. The RSI has created a common strategy for social and environmental supply chain issues. We are part of this platform.
