For us it is important to integrate CSR work into our business activities, which means a commitment to the world around us and to our employees. We want to run the company in a sustainable way and set a good example both socially and environmentally.
CSR stands for Corporate Social Responsibility. It’s about companies taking responsibility for their impact on society beyond what the law requires and working for more sustainable development. The impact can be felt in several areas. A typical breakdown is by social, environmental and economic areas.
We care about and respect each other and our customers, and we also want to be able to contribute to society through charity work, promotions and partnerships, among other things.
At Signomatic, we want to ensure that each employee is happy and doing well, has a good work environment, and feels safe, and that there is no form of discrimination at work. The workplace should be characterised by freedom with responsibility and a focus on a work environment that emphasises collaboration, community, respect and understanding. Our employees should feel a sense of belonging and participation regardless of gender, age, religion, ethnicity, disability, etc.
We believe that good health contributes to healthy and prosperous people and that physical activity increases work performance. As part of this we offer a generous health care contribution and the opportunity for an hour of exercise per week during working hours. We want to encourage movement and community spirit, and every year we participate in various races.
We support activities that we think are helping to make a difference in society, which may include work ranging from human rights to encouraging physical activity. Thanks to our #SignomaticSupports initiative, we can help associations and organisations that need some form of support.
We have established a grant to encourage ideas that can lead to more sustainable development. We want to contribute to innovative solutions, and ultimately to a more sustainable society. Read more here.
We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and always strive to minimise our environmental impact. Our employees have received basic environmental training, and for us it is natural to consider sustainability in everything we do.
We offset the carbon emissions from our activities as well as from all shipments to our customers. The carbon offsetting takes place in cooperation with Tricorona Climate Partner, a Swedish company that helps other companies and organisations to take their share of responsibility for climate issues.

Our new property has been certified a Green Building, which means that it consumes 25% less energy than current requirements.
We have reduced our energy consumption by installing 200 solar panels. This covers about 25% of all our energy consumption for the property, production and offices.
We try to travel with as little negative environmental impact as possible, so we offer our employees an eco-travel benefit. The scheme includes help with the cost of buying a bicycle or covers half the cost of a bus pass.
