Earth, people & direction
[ESG]

Being part of the bigger picture means recognising that our actions and decisions are interconnected with the world around us. A connection that spans across cultures, continents, and generations. By recognising this sense of belonging, we can strive to contribute to something larger than ourselves. To navigate these ideals, we've structured our site into five pivotal sections: Earth, People, Direction, Compliance and Printmasters—each offering a window into the different aspects of our collective impact.



Earth

In a world where every choice affects the environment, making thoughtful decisions is crucial. At Vinga, we're transparent about CO2 emissions since 2023. Using Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), we help customers pick lower-impact options by considering every stage of a product's life. Our LCAs, certified by ISO14067 and verified by Bureau Veritas, ensure accuracy and accountability. With goals to cut emissions by 40% by 2030 and achieve climate neutrality, we're dedicated to positive change. Additionally, through our support to the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation we become part of the solution to one of our time's greatest challenges - preserving our planet for future generations.

People

Safeguarding human rights is key to our ESG strategy. We ensure fair treatment across our supply chain, aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 8. Through audits and memberships in frameworks like amfori BSCI and Sedex SMETA, we monitor and improve supplier conditions. Regulatory compliance, like the Norway Transparency Act and EU directives, strengthens our commitment. Our operations, including Printmasters, undergo regular audits to uphold worker safety and rights.

Direction

In our ESG journey, we've focused on cutting carbon emissions, improving supply chains, and clear communication. Aligned with key SDGs, we're committed to environmental and social change. We've identified lower-impact gifts, bettering ESG standards in our supply chain, and transparent communication as key areas. Our initiatives target positive change in environment and society, linked to SDG 12 and SDG 13. Supporting are SDG 8, SDG 9, and SDG 15, where we involve employees, drive innovation, and preserve habitats globally.
