AXIS COMMUNICATIONS: Axis Communications presents its sustainability report for 2013

Axis Communications today publishes its sustainability report for
2013. In Axis' fourth sustainability report, the company describes
the year's successful work in the areas of environmental
responsibility, business conduct and social responsibility.

"Sustainability issues are an integrated part of Axis' business
operations and I am happy about the progress we have made in terms of
minimizing our environmental impact, promoting good working
conditions and fighting corruption. Our employees' commitment and
efforts play a very important role in ensuring sustainable and
successful growth for Axis in the longer term," says Ray Mauritsson,
President, Axis Communications.

Axis' intelligent security solutions enable a smarter and safer world,
and Axis takes long-term social responsibility for how its operations
impact employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers, end users and
other important target groups. As global market leader, Axis aims to
drive the shift towards innovative security solutions, but also when
it comes to advancing corporate sustainability.

"Based on our position as global market leader, we want to serve as a
model for our industry, and many of our sustainability initiatives
have substantial commercial benefits for us as well as for our
partners and end users," says Ray Mauritsson.

Business relations should be handled in a responsible, transparent and
trustworthy way. Environmental considerations pervade everything from
product development to logistics flows and the final stage of
products. Axis' products and solutions feature leading edge
technologies, which are environmentally friendly and energy-efficient
in the end-use phase.

The most important measures implemented by Axis during the year
included:

· a comprehensive program for employees and distributors in order to
counter corruption, bribes and conflicts of interest

· continual audits of subcontractors; to ensure that they comply
with Axis' requirements relating to environmental responsibility as
well as working environment and safety

new requirements for component suppliers and a new requirement
concerning so-called conflict minerals has been added to the code of
conduct, which Axis applies for its suppliers

· two new configuration and logistics centers, in Suzhou, China and
in Memphis, USA, which will provide increased capacity in the
important US market and the presence in China will also mean greater
proximity to the suppliers that are located in the region and thus
reduce transports

· phase-out of PVC in several products
· optimization and reducing the size of certain product packaging,
which will generate a positive effect both on the environmental
impact of transports and the volume of consumables

· entrepreneurial spirit, openness and commitment has been
strengthened through a variety of activities such as training in the
company's core values and international introductory courses.
