Our sustainability agenda
Sustainability is a prerequisite for long-term profitability. At Clas Ohlson, we integrate environmental and social aspects into the company’s strategy and organisation. This we do under the motto: “from here to sustainability”.
From Here to Sustainability, the green speech bubble in stores and online, attracts attention to our sustainable offering. It raises awareness of products and services that have better environmental performance than comparable products and services, and informs of how they contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle.
"From here to sustainability" also describes the journey we are on as a company. We have eight prioritised areas to help us navigate this journey.
Towards a resource-efficient value chain
Our long-term aim is to help make the value chain more resource-efficient. In order to do this, we need to promote transparency and expand our offering of service solutions that supplement our product offering.
Retail has traditionally been about selling products. Developing services that help customers reuse and recycle products is central for achieving resource efficiency. During the year, a number of stores launched a service for hiring tools. The results of this pilot project will form the basis for developing the concept and expanding it to a larger scale.
