Spaljisten has decided to work actively and focused on the goals: 3, 5, 7, 10 and 12 from AGENDA 2030. says Ermal Devce Sustainability Manager

Agenda 2030, which is the UN's sustainability goal, is a major basis for how we prioritize our efforts. We have chosen the following goals to focus on: 3. Good health and well-being,
5. Gender equality, 10. Reduced inequality, 7. Affordable and Clean Energy and 12. Responsible Consumption and Production. In the report you can follow how we worked with these in 2019.

Although we at Spaljisten should be able to show that we work actively with change work, the driving force is the internal motivation - to constantly improve. With full transparency, we give both managers and employees the opportunity to influence the improvement work within the company together.
