Vision, strategy and sustainability targets

Knowit’s general sustainability target is that we, together with clients and partners, work to actively contribute to the UN Agenda 2030 and the development of society, with a particular focus on positive environmental and climate impact, and increased inclusion.

For us, sustainability is about creating long-term value by integrating environmental, social, and financial risks, and opportunities in business strategy and operations. Integrating sustainability contributes to creating an attractive and flexible company that is equipped for a changeable business landscape.

Our vision – a sustainable and humane society

With a basis in our vision of a sustainable and humane society, we can be a positive force in matters relating to both environment and sustainability in a broader perspective.

With a basis in the principles, we strive to develop our operations in accordance with sound business practices and correct behavior in the areas of human rights, labor law, environment, and anti-corruption.

Our Code of Conduct, Supplier Code of Conduct, Equality and diversity policy, Work environment policy, and Sustainability policy are rules which govern and reflect our work in the sustainability field.
