Sustainability in Håndverksgruppen

Three areas of sustainability prioritised

Håndverksgruppen has assessed the company’s sustainability impact throughout the whole value chain, as well as assessing the consequences of increased sustainability expectations, and other megatrends important to the group. Opportunities and risks relating to sustainability are then ranked according to relevance. From this, we have identified three areas as being relevant to us, as well as being central to our most important stakeholders.


We take care of each other and are an attractive workplace

We take responsibility for society, our employees and our suppliers. Only by establishing requirements, providing good training, and ensuring good focus at all stages, can our sustainability goals be reached.

Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

HG wants to increase the number of young people and adults with relative experience and training who contribute to securing the HG School. Furthermore, we will employ apprentices and help with their development (4.4).

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

Through its apprenticeship scheme, HG will contribute to reducing the number of unemployed young people (8.6), in addition to securing employment rights, safe workplaces, and preventing undeclared work (8.8).


We will understand the climate impact of our operations, become climate neutral and promote a circular economy

The focus is not just on being sustainable in terms of the environment and our climate impact; we must also be sustainable in terms of business ethics, in relation to our employees and generally with regards to the corporate governance of Håndverksgruppen.

Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

HG’s expertise in the fields of renovation and good craftsmanship will contribute directly to ensuring access to adequate, safe, and affordable housing

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.

HG will promote sustainable schemes for public procurement, in accordance with the policies and priorities of individual countries

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

Our experts will advise customers to provide more sustainable solutions that will also accommodate the future climate.


We follow laws and regulations

Grey areas are not acceptable, and we ensure that all laws and regulations are followed. Our employees are trained on ethical guidelines and we have clear procedures for reporting. Furthermore, we set the same standards for our suppliers and collaborators as we do for ourselves.

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

HG works to prevent undeclared work, safeguard workers’ rights and safe workplaces with a focus on HSE, ethical guidelines and effective reporting procedures.

Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.

In order to strengthen partnership for sustainable development, HG will conduct interdisciplinary work with partners across interest groups.

As a portfolio company of FSN Capital, we get good support to work systematically with sustainability and set ourselves good goals.
