Troldtekt production facility

In-depth activities and documented results are the keywords for Troldtekt’s CSR initiatives. We have joined the UN Global Compact scheme, and report every year on our CSR initiatives within four areas.

Troldtekt’s work with CSR is a dynamic process that is integrated in our senior management. It is not the number of CSR goals that matter for us. Rather, it is about continually analysing which objectives are most important – and then working ambitiously to achieve them.

A key element of Troldtekt’s CSR work is the Cradle to Cradle principles, which also underpin the company’s business strategy.

We support the UN’s principles

Since 2010, we have belonged to the UN Global Compact – the world’s biggest voluntary initiative for corporate social responsibility. This means that we support and operate on the basis of the UN’s ten principles within human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. It also means that we are obliged to report annually on our initiatives and progress. 

Troldtekt, CSR rapport 2017

CSR report 2017

Troldtekt is a member of the UN Global Compact – the world’s biggest voluntary initiative for corporate social responsibility. Therefore we submit a report each year to UN in which we describe in detail our achievements when it comes to the environment, labour rights, society and human rights. Our CSR reporting is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI G4) methodology. A few highlights from our CSR report for 2017:

  • Volumes of production waste suitable for incineration decreased by 13% despite an increase in production.
  • The number of lost-time injuries were reduced from eight in 2016 to four in 2017.
  • We have increased the proportion of sustainable FSC®-certified wood used in production, and can now supply products with ‘FSC® 100%’ certification.
  • In 2017, and for the fourth time, an employee who had been on a trial work period at Troldtekt was permanently employed.
  • With a new painting facility, we have reduced paint waste by more than 70%. In 2017 we used less paint, despite producing more.

UN Global Compact

In 2010, Troldtekt joined the UN Global Compact, which is the world’s biggest voluntary initiative for corporate social responsibility.

By participating in the UN Global Compact initiative, businesses commit themselves to observing ten principles within the areas of human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. These principles must be reflected in the individual organisation as well as its activities, and an annual progress report must be submitted to the UN.

Troldtekt supports the goals for a sustainable world

UN member countries have adopted 17 common goals to ensure the balancing of the environmental and economic dimensions of sustainable development. Troldtekt is focusing on two goals in particular, and has helped to inspire other companies.
