A responsible business must show concern for the environment, and Systembolaget is no exception. Our aim is, in fact, to be to the forefront in this respect and to inspire other companies to do more for the environment. Our owners have stated clearly that they expect us to conduct our operations in a sustainable way, and we are working in a number of ways to reduce our environmental impact within the supply chain. Our work in this area includes mapping environmental problems, working to promote a transition to more climate-friendly packaging, and efforts to meet our customers’ substantial demand for organic products. See below to find out more about our environmental work.
Why is this important to us?
Systembolaget’s operations are global and our supply chain is complex. The majority of our 650 active drinks suppliers have subcontractors and they, in turn, often have subcontractors of their own. Our indirect environmental impact is, therefore, substantial at both global, regional and local level. Climate impact, water consumption and the impact on biological diversity are particularly important areas, and we are working very hard to promote environmental improvements in the supply chain. We are keen to exploit our potential to make a real difference.
