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.
