Our sustainability journey

To us, sustainability is both a responsibility and an opportunity


We want to contribute to a sustainable development

Our products are primarily made of wood – a renewable source with a long lifespan and of high quality. This means we care about sustainability and the world’s resources. Our value chain, risk analyses and product lifecycle analyses tell us what impact we make, and where our possibilities to improve lie. We have a clear sustainability strategy that aligns with four of UN’s goals for sustainable development, and we strive for an increased contribution to a sustainable development.


We visualise our sustainability strategy with a tree, where the branches symbolise the three main areas of the strategy. These are further detailed in a total of seven strategic sustainability initiatives, which are the most important areas with the clearest potential for improvements and effect. We have established clear targets and several activities are either ongoing or planned.


We know where we want to go, and our strategy defines our journey.

Our three sustainability pillars

Optimise our environmental impact

We strive to minimise our material usage, reduce chemicals and increase the possibility of circularity through, for example, re-use and recycling. We prioritize to reduce our CO2e impact throughout the entire value chain.

Encourage people’s wellbeing

We strive to enable our employees to reach their full potential, as a part of a winning team in a safe and healthy work environment. For us, it is important to be “a great place to work”, take our responsibility as an important employer and to contribute to society.

Promote respectful business ethics

To us, promoting respectful business ethics means we safeguard employee rights, encourage honesty and participation, and work against bribes, corruption and child labour.


Circular design

Ambition 2030:

95% of our products shall be possible to material recover (excluding energy recovery)


Target 2022:

>99% of our products shall be recyclable, including energy recovery


Status 2022:

>98% of our products are recyclable, including energy recovery and 98% recyclability of kitchen appliances

Reduce CO₂e emissions

Ambition 2030:

CO₂e < 2 350 tonnes (-70% vs 2018), scope 1 and 2, according to GHG


Target 2022:

CO₂e  < 4 700 tonnes (-40% vs 2018), scope 1 and 2


Status 2022:

CO₂e 2 763 tonnes (-65% vs 2018), scope 1 and 2


Since 2018, we have reduced our CO₂ emissions by 65%, a fantastic journey that is largely due to 100% renewable electricity and a transition to renewable energy as heating and biofuels in our own transport.  A scope 3 analysis has been done through product lifecycle analyses and highlights our work with transport solutions, supplier dialogue, product content and more.

Sustainable forestry

Target 2022:

100% certified wood in our products


Status 2022:

100% certified wood in our products


Since 2019, it has been central to Ballingslöv International’s sustainability strategy to only purchase wood raw materials that originate from either FSC or PEFC certified forest sources. In 2022, we achieved our target, with 100% of our wood-based products coming from certified forest sources.  Certified wood means sustainable forestry – reforestation is secured, biological diversity is preserved and good working conditions are ensured.
