Acting with care
As an international design company, as an employer across several countries and as a business partner with suppliers all over the world, we take active responsibility for the impact we have on the environment and the climate, as well as on the people our business is touch with.
The journey from raw materials over processing and transportation to finished items that end customers unpack at home or pass forward as gifts, is long and involves numerous steps along the way. As all parts of the process potentially involve risks of impacting people and the environment, we see it as our responsibility to work targeted to increase our knowledge of this journey and ongoingly to improve transparency so that we can act consciously and effectively to minimize our impact. Not just in our own processes but in the scopes covering suppliers, hauliers and other partners. While making it easier for end customers to make informed, responsible choices.

Sharing the responsibility – and the actions
Through a materiality assessment in 2019, we identified our primary impact areas and from here which UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) should to focus on, further broadening our scope along the way.
We concentrate our actions around SDGs 8, 12, 13 and 15, working eagerly to implement these goals in all relevant parts of our business. Together with our partners.

  • Engagement

Responsible by design
No business anywhere in the world is capable of solving the complex challenges the globe faces, on its own. This applies for Rosendahl Design Group as well, only through close collaboration with suppliers, customers, employees and other partners can we truly make a difference.
In order to maximize our impact and to cooperate and learn from others, we are a member of several organizations within corporate social responsibility.

In 2018, Rosendahl Design Group A/S became a member of the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative that lays out 10 general principles for the way businesses work with social responsibility.
As a member of the UN Global Compact, we are obliged to integrate the 10 principles for human rights, labor rights, the environment and anti-corruption into our strategy and corporate culture.

Rosendahl Design Group collaborates with suppliers in many different countries. We want to work with suppliers whose employees work under conditions that, as a minimum, live up to the minimum requirements for the supplier’s home country as well as internationally applicable legislation, and where the supplier constantly works to improve these conditions.

  • Carbon footprint

Limiting the impact of our business
In 2019 Rosendahl Design Group embarked on a journey to fully understand and document our carbon footprint with the aim of covering SCOPE 1 and SCOPE 2 according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol with the inclusion of what we regard as the most important parts of SCOPE 3.
Our aim for the first part of this journey has been to create an overview of the largest impact areas in our operations. The next phases include digging deeper into the relevant categories, improving the input data quality to achieve more accurate results and allowing us to set quantitative targets to reduce our carbon footprint, and closely follow up on the reduction via data gathering.
The carbon footprint calculation of Rosendahl Design Group is based on the internationally recognized Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol with the standard covering the accounting and reporting of seven greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol.
