Troldtekt & CSR

Troldtekt CSR report 2019

CSR report 2019

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. In 2019, Troldtekt achieved results within all four of the UN Sustainable Development Goals which are focus areas for the company:

  • SDG 3 (Good health and well-being): New knowledge about healthy construction
    Rambøll has prepared documentation for Troldtekt’s contribution to WELL-certified and Nordic Swan Ecolabelled construction, where the focus is on health and well-being. This supplements the documentation for Troldtekt’s contribution to the DGNB, LEED and BREEAM certifications. Troldtekt is also part of the newly opened C2C LAB in Berlin, a knowledge centre for Cradle to Cradle-certified building materials.
  • SDG 12 (Responsible consumption and production): Less energy per unit
    In 2019, Troldtekt inaugurated a new factory line. Fully automated processes and the latest technology at the factory enable Troldtekt to manufacture its acoustic panels more energy-efficiently. In 2018, consumption was 25.47 MJ (megajoules) per produced square metre, while in 2019 it was 21.95 MJ. This equates to a 13.8% reduction. Over two years, the reduction has been 20.9%.
  • SDG 15 (Life on land): Choice between FSC and PEFC
    In 2019, Troldtekt supplemented its FSC® certification (FSC®C115450) with a PEFC™ certification. All the acoustic panels are now certified according to one of the two leading standards for responsible forestry. All the wood which is used is PEFC-certified, and much of it is also FSC-certified. Customers are therefore free to choose between the two standards when buying Troldtekt.
  • SDG 17 (Partnerships for the goals): Leading the way for more certified forests
    In partnership with FSC Denmark, in 2019 Troldtekt launched a public call concerning the need for more FSC-certified forests in Denmark. The joint initiative comprised several activities, and has now resulted in, for example, the Municipality of Ringkøbing-Skjern in western Jutland FSC-certifying its woodland areas.

CSR policy

Troldtekt must be an attractive employer and business partner. Corporate responsibility is therefore formalised
in the company’s CSR policy.

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.

Responsible production and a better life on land

Troldtekt supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We have decided to focus on the two goals where we can make the biggest difference. In 2018, this resulted in a new and energy-efficient factory line and increased focus on FSC®-certified wood (FSC®C115450).
