Agenda 2030

Responsive image

The UN’s 2030 Agenda, which outlines the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is the most ambitious agenda for sustainable development that the world’s countries have ever undertaken.

The UN’s project to establish sustainable development goals was launched to encourage companies to choose more sustainable ways of operating when it comes to social, environmental and economic factors in business processes. Activities related to anti-corruption and human rights are included in the UN’s sustainable development goals.

How and why are we committed to change?

Spaljisten has chosen to focus on sustainability by integrating it in our vision.

The UN’s 2030 Agenda, which outlines the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is the most ambitious agenda for sustainable development that the world’s countries have ever undertaken. It has been launched to achieve four essential objectives by 2030:      

  1. Eliminate extreme poverty
  2. Reduce inequality and injustice in the world 
  3. Facilitate peace and justice
  4. Solve the climate crisis

The UN’s project to establish sustainable development goals was launched to encourage companies to choose more sustainable ways of operating when it comes to social, environmental and economic factors in business processes. Activities related to anti-corruption and human rights are included in the UN’s sustainable development goals.

Spaljisten has chosen to focus on sustainability by integrating it into our vision, defined as: “Spaljisten is a world-class furniture front manufacturer that keeps the next generation in mind.” With this statement, we want to ensure that responsible decisions are always made to contribute to sustainable development. We take responsibility for implementing this vision by aligning the economic, environmental and social aspects of our strategic work and operations and integrating them into our products and production. This applies to the entire value chain for customers, suppliers and the company. Spaljisten has committed itself to this work and has decided to actively focus on goals: 3., 5., 7., 10. and 12.

Our idea of sustainable consumption and production rests on the principle of manufacturing products using the highest possible share of renewable materials, while at the same time keeping our waste and waste products to a minimum. Over the past year we developed a kitchen cabinet front made entirely from recycled materials. Producing a cabinet front that measures 40x80 cm requires 18 PET bottles. Sustainable consumption not only creates environmental gains but also social and economic benefits, for example increased competitiveness of the global market by being at the cutting edge.

We monitor our development and percentage increases in the following areas:

Share of recycled wood in particleboard.

Share of recycled plastic in foil.

Share of recycled plastic in the edging.

Share of bio-based glue in our products.
