"Based on profitability, Bokusgruppen aims to contribute to a sustainable and democratic society, enabling future generations to also have the opportunity to experience the joy of reading."

Together, we assume a major responsibility for realising our vision, and sustainability is an important aspect of this, not only for us and our stakeholders, but above all for the planet and the future. Our sustainability work is focused on four main areas: Joy of Reading, Product Range, Environment and Employees.

2021 started with a major overhaul of Bokusgruppen’s sustainability work. We have appointed a new sustainability manager and a sustainability management team. We have revised our strategies and sustainability areas and updated our long-term objectives. We have implemented, or are in the process of implementing, an impact analysis, materiality analysis and stakeholder dialogue as well as a CO₂ analysis of our entire operations. We have also appointed cross-functional teams, which will work further on sub-targets and actions during the year.

Sustainability strategies and objectives 

Bokusgruppen has four overall sustainability strategies and seven sustainability areas with overall objectives. The sustainability work is headed by Bokusgruppen’s sustainability manager together with a sustainability management team, and is conducted in cross-functional teams connected to each particular sustainability area.

Joy of reading

We will work actively on initiatives that promote reading and thereby contribute to getting more adults and children to read regularly and thus experience the joy of reading. Reading and languages are decisive for the development of both the individual and society, and Bokusgruppen is an important player in this endeavour.

Product range

We shall ensure a sustainable, reliable and long-term customer offering. Together with our suppliers, we will ensure that our products and services are safe, maintain high quality, have a long lifecycle and are produced in a responsible manner.

Environment and climate 

We shall work actively to reduce our operations’ adverse impact on the environment and climate, by making improvements in terms of transport, packaging, consumption of energy, recycling and reuse. We also want to give our customers the right conditions for making correct choices from an environmental and climate perspective.

Employees

We shall offer a safe, developmental and fair workplace that utilises people’s differences and capabilities.

Target follow-up

Our overall objectives apply until 2025. Sub-targets are being formulated by cross-functional sustainability teams connected to the various sustainability areas and will apply for periods of one to three years. In addition to formulating the sub-targets, the cross-functional teams have been tasked with integrating sustainability work throughout the business.

The sustainability teams report to the sustainability manager and the sustainability management team. Target fulfilment is measured continuously and reported in the annual sustainability report.
