Kährs to focus on six 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals
IN line with its sustainability program, wood flooring and luxury vinyl tile manufacturer Kährs has decided to focus on six of the 2030 UN Sustainability Development Goals: good health and well-being, affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action and life on land.
Over the decades, Kährs, in cooperation with its customers, says it's become a leader in providing flooring offering high expectations of quality, design and innovative and sustainable solutions. As the UN sustainable development goals are recognised across global industries, Kährs says it will adopt and integrate six of the global goals into its overall business operations.
'Kährs' ambition is to contribute to a more sustainable society and we have chosen these six SDG goals in areas where we have the most impact. We're integrating these goals into our business operations and sustainability plan to further support our commitment to offer products that are healthy, recyclable, perform to the highest standards, and based on responsibly sourced materials,' says Christer Persson, president and ceo of Kährs Group.
Ongoing sustainable initiatives include using more sustainable internal transportations, and one company goal is to have all internal transports running on fossil-free fuel.
Aligned with the goal of affordable and clean energy, the company says it will continue its efforts in reducing energy use and increase the amount of energy from renewable sources.
'Our sustainability program characterises all parts of who we are and what we do. We're taking responsibility to minimise our environmental footprint by utilising innovative, sustainable solutions and actions,' says Bruce Uhler, sustainability manager at Kährs.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals was adopted by all UN’s member states in 2015. All signatories decided together, to achieve a social, environmental and economically sustainable development. Read more at: https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment
