Sustainability

The global challenges society is facing require responsible leadership and systematic work. We, as a business, have an important role to play.

This is why we are working actively to integrate sustainability in our daily work. Our sustainability initiatives are based on the understanding that every link in the chain is important, from supplier to employee to customer. Nobia’s operations include everything from product development and production to sales. By implementing our sustainability strategy, we are aiming to have sustainability issues permeate innovation and design as well as choice of materials and manufacturing.

For this work, we have been recognized in several rankings and rewards:

We ranked in the top of the “Walking the talk report” 2019; a survey investigating and rating the relationship between sustainability communication and sustainability management (practice) among Nasdaq OMX large cap companies.

We ranked among top 2 in the Consumer Goods category of the 2019 Hållbara bolag (Sustainable Businesses) survey; a survey investigating the sustainability management among Nasdaq OMX companies.

We were graded C+, Prime in sustainability in the ISS-oekom corporate rating 2018. ISS is a world’s leading provider of corporate governance and responsible investment solutions for asset owners, asset managers, hedge funds and asset service providers and are carrying out corporate ESG-ratings.   

Our production facilities in the UK received the British Safety Council’s Sword of Honour award 2018 and 2019. This is one of the highest safety accolades in the UK.

Our sustainability strategy links our core operations with our ambitions to promote the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The strategy is built on four long-term focus areas with opportunities for improvement.
