Ever since Jens Ekornes founded Ekornes in Sykkylven more than 80 years ago, robust materials and quality craftsmanship have been top priorities. We have always aimed to make products that last for generations. Today, this is more important than ever before.
We are members of the UN’s Global Compact initiative. This is a voluntary scheme, whose members undertake to implement 10 principles for responsible business practice. These cover labour rights, human rights, the fight against corruption, and sustainable production that protects the environment.
As a member of the Global Compact, we report annually on what we have achieved in our day-to-day operations to reach these goals. You can read our Sustainability report here.
