2023 Vestre Impact Report!

2023 Vestre Impact Report!

This year, Vestre emphasizes the power of collaboration, highlighting our expansion into the United States and our achievement with The Plus—the world's most environmentally friendly furniture factory. With this report we aim to showcase the need for thinking and competing as value chains and networks, rather than standalone companies. A significant portion of our report is therefore dedicated to our suppliers, whose partnership is vital in achieving our decarbonization goals through innovative low-carbon solutions and circular models. Together, we're not just aiming for sustainability; we're building it into the fabric of our operations. "2023 marks a pivotal year for Vestre as we expand our operations into the United States, further solidifying our global presence. Building on the momentum of 2022, where we saw the successful launch of The Plus, the world’s most environmentally friendly furniture factory as evidenced by a BREEAM Outstanding certificate, and insourced more than 90% of our value chain?, we are now set to take more ambitious strides. Our journey into the US market is not just a geographical expansion; it represents a broader commitment to creating locally robust, globally integrated value chains that prioritize supply security and sustainability. A core component of such value chains is their constituent parts, the suppliers. With this report we aim to showcase the need for thinking and competing as value chains and networks, rather than standalone companies. Over 95% of our emissions are in scope 3?, so we necessarily have to engage with our suppliers to mitigate them according to our decarbonisation plan: 1) switching to low-carbon alternatives and 2) scaling circular models. Here we take a closer look at some of the specific partners we at Vestre are proud to work with, and their contribution to our sustainability efforts. All our sustainability work revolves around creating inclusive design furniture that are built to last. Our venture into the circular space, Vestre Vision Zero, states that all Vestre products shall have the potential of lasting forever through a little care, repair and refurbishment. To achieve this we need to broaden and deepen our stakeholder dialogue, both from the material source, to the customer and back again. Because at Vestre, we believe that everyone can save the world. A little. Join us as we explore our impact of the past year, all made possible through the strength of collaboration and community.
