Press release -
LK issues its annual Sustainability Report
You are now reading our sustainability report. Here, we provide you with a comprehensive picture of our sustainability work, our goals and the way we reach them. We want the report to increase knowledge about and inspire more sustainable initiatives, both internally and externally.
Because of COVID-19, 2020 was a special year for the whole world. Despite the difficult situation, we have succeeded well, based on its effects on LK during the year, if we look at results and how we have adapted and, in terms of sales, it was a record year. We can also see that the employee survey 2020, showed that all general indices have increased compared to 2019.
In summary, in 2020 we succeeded in becoming even more efficient despite the fact that many people worked from home during the year, which everyone did brilliantly. Most of the customer meetings and events were cancelled and rearranged, from physical to digital meetings, and that shift has also worked admirably, which is reflected in the result.
Every day, we are working to achieve increased sustainability for our customers, ourselves and the rest of the world and our sustainability report helps us to question and act.
"To create the best opportunities for our sustainability work, our work environment shall provide the conditions for personal development and be characterised by job satisfaction, trust, learning and listening to each other. We create commitment and motivation by including employees in decisions and they are involved in the development of our processes. We want an open work culture, where we are comfortable raising questions and proposing alternative solutions. With our most important resource at LK, our personnel, we will continue to be successful for many years to come," writes the steering group at LK.
LK has chosen to report on sustainability at group level, despite the fact that only one subsidiary is subject to legal requirements to do so. Together, we can develop the business so that both interim goals and overall goals can be attained more effectively.
