UN Sustainable Development Goals
At Cane-line, social responsibility and respect for the environment are vital elements of our DNA and core values. This is why we actively support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We particularly support the desire to create a sustainable business/production that minimises our societal and environmental impact.
As a furniture manufacturer, we believe our greatest impact will come from addressing goals 8 and 12. To us, the SDGs make us even more motivated to work towards a more sustainable business.
SDG No. 8 is about creating decent jobs and sustainable economic growth. To achieve this, we work to create decent jobs with good conditions, both in Denmark and at our production facility in Indonesia. In the local community of Rynkeby, Denmark, where our head office is located, we focus on creating jobs, particularly for young people. Our production facility in Indonesia is particularly focused on creating decent jobs with good working conditions.
SDG No. 12 seeks to ensure more responsible consumption and production methods. These were key elements of our DNA long before the SDGs arose. Because we have always aimed to run a business that minimises its societal and environmental impact. For example, did you know that we have been sorting our waste at the head office in Rynkeby for years or that our heat comes from a district heating plant right next door?
As a manufacturer, we are keenly aware that electricity consumption often has a large environmental impact. Therefore, we are proud to have reduced our electricity consumption by 50% in 2013, and we have been able to maintain this level ever since.
Our certifications include ISO 140001 and SMETA and manifest how we are intensifying our commitment to the green agenda, and how their guidelines assist us in becoming even better.
