In Egmont we have a long history of social responsibility.
We give back to the next generation as we are a foundation with a dual purpose: to develop media and to help children and young people at risk. Read more about the Egmont Foundation.
We are also committed to work with sustainability across our businesses and operations. We want to: Go Greener fast, empower our people and communities, and embed responsible business practices throughout our organisation.
We want to lower the CO2-emissions from our own operations, which includes our energy consumption, our company cars and business flights. We want to transition to green electricity and in 2021, we invested in a solar park in Denmark. We are looking into similar investments in green electricity for Norway and Sweden.
The main part of Egmont’s CO2-emissions is related to our supply chains. We are currently focusing on four selected supply chain categories where we believe, we can make a big impact: Printed products, covermounts and toys, packaging, and goods transportation.
