Decent work and economic growth

Sustainability goals:

We offer job training for people with gaps in their CV

We offer job training for people with gaps in their CV and no access to the ordinary labour market, including through cooperation with the Church City Mission charity. We now plan to offer microloans and knowledge transfer for people in developing countries. This will enable more people to set up their own small business, just like Johannes Vestre did in 1947. Vestre was the first furniture manufacturer to join IEH - Ethical Trading Initiative Norway, and we have strict requirements for all our suppliers regarding human rights, labour rights and sustainable development.
