Nine years ago, we became the first climate-neutral outdoor furniture manufacturer in the world, and we have set ourselves a target of zero climate gas emissions.
Between 2014 and 2016, we cut our CO2 emissions by nearly 40 % in relation to production value. We still generate climate gas emissions equivalent to 2,500 cars a year, however. We compensate for this by funding rainforest conservation in Papua New Guinea.
An incubator in Africa, Techbridge is a Norwegian startup that is trying to help startups in Africa thrive, and guide investors from all over the world into impact opportunities here. An example is SUNami, a micro-grid solar company, providing power to people where there is none.
