We care for our employees as well as society and comply with laws and all other regulations that apply to our business. We do this through active initiatives related to quality, environmental issues, working environment and safety. Our vision is a company that manufactures world class fronts for furniture with the next generation in mind. So - what are we doing in our daily work?

The sustainability policy runs through our entire organisation and is characterised in our daily operations by social sustainability, economic sustainability and ecological sustainability. We care for our employees as well as society and comply with laws and all other regulations that apply to our business. We do this through active initiatives related to quality, environmental issues, working environment and safety.

Our focus areas

Within quality and safety: to meet internal and external customers’ expectations through continuous improvements.  
Within environment: minimise our impact through low resource consumption and by complying with laws, customer requirements and certificate guidelines. 
Within working environment: zero vision for occupational injuries and an open culture focusing on commitment, skills development and well-being.

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” This is the definition of sustainable development from UN.

- I am personally passionate about the third UN SDG goal as this relates to the soft values of sustainability performance. There is no question that people have the biggest impact when it comes to upholding quality standards. In terms of health measurement, it is important to assess the well-being of the company, co-workers and society at large. My goal is to engage our employees, increase well-being and create the best conditions for each person to deal with everyday tasks, regardless of age. In other words, to do the right things – at the right time.
