Drumster case: Closed loop
In the long-term, sustainability work is absolutely crucial. We need to make a change so that we humans can continue to live off the earth’s resources. If we deplete the resources, in the long run we will not be able to exist ourselves.
We have set clear goals for both the whole organisation and our employees. How can I contribute to sustainable business? This is a question we want all our employees to take on board and act accordingly. It is important that every employee feels that it is possible to make a difference even in their daily work.
There are essentially two parts. Firstly, to reduce our own emissions from those parts of our business that are linked to our operations, and secondly, to help our customers make more environmentally sustainable product choices.
This is very important and we set high standards for our suppliers to actively work with sustainability. We can’t sell products that come from suppliers who don’t have their value chain under control. That is, suppliers who do not actively work to reduce their emissions and who do not have a sustainability aspect in the development of products. We want to help our customers choose the right products, so sustainability data from our suppliers is also important to us.
