Corporate Responsibilty

Corporate Responsibilty

The Komplett Group has drawn up guidelines for its corporate social responsibility. The guidelines provide guidance for management and the employees for dealing with routine operations.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS
Komplett AS intends to run a healthy business that takes responsibility for its employees, the community and the environment. We support the UN's Sustainable Development goals, placing special emphasis on UN Sustainable Development goal no. 13 "Climate action". We work systematically to reduce our environmental footprint by operating as efficiently and 'greenly' as possible. We report our consumption of energy and other resources both directly as related to operations and in connection with employees' business travel.

Komplett AS also places special emphasis on Sustainable Development goal no. 4 "Quality education". Since 2008, we have actively supported an orphanage and a school through Project Peru. In connection with the project, Komplett AS and its employees have contributed more than MNOK 3 to building and operating the orphanage, thus helping to give disadvantaged children an opportunity for a better start in life. As from 2018, Komplett has entered into collaboration with the SOS Children's Villages programme in Kitwe, Zambia. Our focus is on children, care and knowledge. We aspire to help girls and boys get equal opportunities for education.

Komplett AS will always comply with local environmental legislation wherever we operate. We will strive continuously to improve our environmental efforts. Komplett AS expects our suppliers to cooperate with us to fulfil our environmental ambitions. Environmental standards are an integral part of the contracts we sign. We actively provide information about our environmental efforts and maintain a good dialogue with our stakeholders on environmental issues. Komplett AS’s operations are to comply with all relevant environmental legislation, and Komplett AS will at all times seek to identify improvements that can reduce or prevent pollution. Komplett is ISO14001-certified.
