And the result will follow
Ermal Devce work hard for social, economic och environmental sustainability at Spaljisten, but also cross-functional within the SureWood group.
Sustainability is something we hold close to heart at Spaljisten. This work will never come to an end, we will just aim higher and work for more innovative solutions to reach the next level.
We took some time and talked through the past year with Ermal. To be honest this past year has not been a completely normal year with the pandemic and all. It has trained us in dealing with unpredictable events and quick decision making. But we have also seen what happens when people come together, help each other and get involved across borders and what we achieve when everyone has their sights set on the same thing. We have seen it globally, locally but also within companies. That is something important to learn from and preserve.
From the start in 1975 Spaljisten has worked with sustainability in various aspects, but without to a greater point categorizing or further defining how or why. In 2019, we decided to become one of the companies that make an effort for the world to be able to achieve the goals set in Agenda 2030.
- We have made a responsible and professional decision to work with social, economic and environmental sustainability, says Ermal Devce, Sustainability Manager at Spaljisten AB
Our vision is to be a world-class furniture front manufacturer with the next generation in mind. It shows the importance of our commitment to a sustainable future. We have chosen to integrate some of the global goals into our own business development and in that way contribute to a better and more sustainable world step by step. We see that this work pays off by increasing our sustainability index by several percent. The result is a more sustainable business with sustainable products that help our customers exceed the end customer's expectations.
- I am proud that we work with sustainability for real! We see this through the increase in our sustainability index from 73% to 76%. We have achieved this through activities developed based on the UN's sustainability goals (Agenda 2030) and the change to electricity sourced from local wind power producers. The journey has only just begun, but it can only be completed if everyone contributes. We do each other good, says Ermal Devce, Sustainability Manager at Spaljisten AB
The work with sustainability will never come to an end, we will just aim higher and work for more innovative solutions to reach the next level. With a great customer focus, smart goals and by daring to challenge ourselves, we will get there, get better and reach new heights.
