At ASTRUP Group A/S, we take responsibility
– we want to be part of creating a safe future for our children
Global warming, food waste, too much plastic in the natural environment etc. – everyday life is shaped by challenges for all of us.
No-one – politicians, companies, organisation or consumers – can solve these challenges alone and ensure a safe future for our children. We all have a shared responsibility – we must stand together and each of us must do our part to help solve these enormous challenges. Small or big – everything we do makes a difference.
We can take responsibility and do our part by focusing on and working according to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), among other initiatives.
All of these SDGs are hugely important, but in more concrete terms we at ASTRUP Group A/S have initially chosen to focus in particular on 5 SDGs which we as a company believe we have the greatest influence on:
Goal no. 3: Good health and well-being. This Goal is about ensuring a healthy life for everyone and promoting well-being for all age groups. We want to promote both mental and physical health and well-being in our company. There are room for diversity, there are room for personal growth.
Goal No. 12: Responsible consumption and production. We must reduce the pressure we are putting on our earth. We are working towards producing all our wood products using FSC®-certified timber so that we can join the effort to guarantee proper forest maintenance. We are attempting to reduce waste by reusing materials such as packaging. We are working to reduce our use of plastic with regards to both procurement and the sale of our goods.
Goal on. 13: Climate action. We are involved in stopping deforestation, as well as other initiatives. That’s why we manufacture all of our products using FSC®-certified timber. By doing this, we are part of the effort to promote sustainable forestry in the fight against climate change.
Goal no. 15: Life on land. We want to achieve sustainable forestry. That’s why we are an FSC®-certified company which, as far as possible, only uses FSC®-certified timber for manufacturing our wooden toys. At the same time, FSC®-certified forests create the foundations for maintaining an income for affected families.
Goal no. 17: Partnerships for the goals. We partner with a number of organisations that want to take responsibility for our earth and for the people and animals who live here. We collaborate with FSC®, Amfori and Legebranchen, and also strive to maintain good, long-lasting partnerships with our suppliers. By doing this, we can help to change and improve working conditions at factories and more through dialogue and support. We can be a part of making sure that our products are produced responsibly and to a high level of quality.
We are confident that when consumers buy our products, they don’t just buy toys, they buy values. For many, this means being able to shop with peace of mind. So by buying our products, you are also contributing to the efforts to achieve the UN’s many Sustainable Development Goals.
