Sustainable Development Goals

 

At STARK Group, we are committed to contributing to a more sustainable world. That is why we support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are a universal call for action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

STARK Group has chosen to focus our main efforts on goal #12, "Life on land," and goal #15, "Responsible consumption and production". These two goals pertain to our core tasks and are where we can deliver the most impact. We also support several of the remaining 15 goals throughout our business operations and supply chain. 

Goal #12

Responsible consumption and production

STARK Group aims to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. Our business units actively promote sustainable construction products that reduce hazardous substances, improve indoor climate, and promote material reuse and circularity. We also engage in relevant partnerships to support circularity in the building industry. 

We support sustainable construction by ensuring that relevant materials are available in our assortment to fulfil building standard requirements, including available documentation. 

Goal #15

Life on land

STARK Group aims to protect, restore and promote the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems and sustainably managed forests, to combat desertification, to halt and reverse land degradation, and to halt biodiversity loss. All our business units are FSC and/or PETC certified and driven by our Timber Policy, which supports goal #15 (15.1, 15.2, 15.b). 

STARK Group is active in both the FSC and PEFC organisations, with representatives on the Danish FSC Board of Directors and the Finnish PEFC working group for the review of the new forest management standard.
