Economy 經濟

Sound finances are fundamental for sustainability

It may sound like a paradox that economy should be a part of sustainability work. But sound finances enable us to live up to our commitments in environmental and social issues. The problem is that traditional methods of measuring profitability often ignore sustainability aspects in a company’s activities. A lot has happened in recent years however and since 2013, Fjällräven has followed GRI’s guidelines for sustainability reporting.

We are convinced that stable financial growth in the company means that we can convince more people – including our suppliers, partners, owners and even other companies in our industry – to join us in our quest for sustainability, not only in outdoor life, but in production lines and business in general.

Long-term relationships

We consider the development of long-term business relationships with our suppliers and business partners to be very important. This is also a prerequisite for working successfully with issues of environmental and social development in different parts of the world. All our suppliers have to sign our Code of Conduct and they must comply with it in every way. We continuously discuss its contents and offer training and support to suppliers on request.

Innovation

Fjällräven has had a strong culture of innovation throughout its history. The ability to think in new ways is a key factor to be able to develop our business and sustainability orientation. We are constantly seeking new solutions, new improved and environmental materials and new methods of production, and we strive to work more efficiently and sustainably throughout the entire chain of production. So, naturally, we value suppliers and partners who share this approach with us.

財務穩健是可持續發展的基礎

說經濟是可持續發展工作的重要一環或許有點矛盾,但是唯有健全的財務才能幫助我們實踐環保和社會承諾。傳統計算利潤的方式很容易忽略企業在可持續發展的努力,這幾年我們也經歷了許多,從2013年起,Fjällräven開始遵循全球可持續發展報告協會的可持續發展報告指南。

我們相信公司穩定的財務成長才能說服更多人——包含供應商、合夥人、投資人,甚至其他同業——與我們一同追求可持續發展這個目標,不只在戶外生活方面,還要在整體的生產線和營運上一起努力。

長期合作關係

我們認為與供應商和合作夥伴維持長期的商業關係是非常重要的,同時也必須有效顧及世界各地的環保和社會發展問題。所有合作的供應商都必須簽署我們的《行為守則》,而且務必全面配合。我們會不斷討論守則內容,需要時為協力廠商提供訓練和支援。

創新

Fjällräven自創始以來著重創新,我們的營運方針和可持續發展方針都是出於我們創新思考的能力。我們一直不斷在尋找新的解決方案、新的改良和環保材質,和新的生產方式。我們在生產線上始終用心提升效率和維持一貫穩定性,因此,我們自然很重視與我們志同道合的供應商和合作夥伴。
