Environmental and Social Responsibility
Ekornes aims to fulfil its environmental responsibilities associated with the manufacture, distribution, use and destruction of the company's products. For years, the company has been implementing improvements in its factories that benefit the internal and external environment, and has at the same time been choosing more environmentally friendly raw materials.
We also participate in the UN's Global Compact initiative. This is a voluntary scheme in which members commit to implementing ten principles in the areas of employees' rights, human rights, combating corruption, and sustainable production that protects the environment.
As a member of Global Compact, we submit an annual report on what we have done in our day-to-day operations to achieve the goals. You can read our report for 2013 here.
