We have a vested interest in taking care of nature, because it ensures the source of our wood remains intact. As a modern, global company, we are leaders in social responsibility, in humane ethics and sustainable conduct in all of our processes – here in Denmark and around the world.
This means for example, that in Denmark we truly value our employees, their competencies and their well-being at the workplace. This applies to every part of our business, from administration and warehouse staff, to our partners.
As a socially responsible partner, we collaborate with our suppliers on many different matters, for example, ensuring that the children of sawmill workers are offered schooling and their families are provided with access to medical care.
At the same time, we are proud that we help to preserve our forests globally through important environmental certification programmes. This results in better conditions for the forests and a future-proof environment with regard to focus on CO2 emissions.
