Consit Gruppen's subsidiaries are typical knowledge-based companies, where most products and deliveries are digital and do not require physical production or distribution.

Over the past few years, we have continuously worked with sustainability. As part of this work, e.g. the entire cooling system in the server room replaced in summer 2021, which meant a direct reduction in electricity consumption of 20.5% per month.

A newly established steering group, with the managers from the individual subsidiaries as well as the group management, decided in 2021 that we should begin structured work and develop a sustainability plan for the years 2021 – 2025.

This work has now begun, and a formalized plan will be developed with targets for 2025 within CO2 reduction and other sustainability initiatives.

Purpose of this sustainability plan

We want to contribute in every way we can to ensure a sustainable future for future generations. We are of the clear opinion that a joint initiative to ensure a sustainable future creates unity and loyalty between employees, management, customers and suppliers. We have therefore taken on this task with pride and look forward to working towards our set goals in 2025.

In the future, we will work together with suppliers who also work for a sustainable future. Therefore, we will continuously adjust our requirements for how our suppliers and their products meet requirements for sustainability and CO2 reduction.

With this plan, we want to show our customers that we take sustainability seriously and that we will do everything we can to meet our customers' demands for sustainability in their suppliers.

Our commitment to this sustainability plan is also part of our core values, which we have developed together with our employees.

Concrete initiatives that have an impact on the individual employee will also be integrated into our employee handbook.

The goal is for our sustainability plan to be certified during the period, so that we can set up some fixed routines for follow-up, reporting and further development. Eg. ISO 14001 within Environmental Management.

It is also the goal of the certification to form the basis for future environmental and GHG accounts, which companies may must submit in the future.

Employee training and skills development
During the entire process, we will plan and hold information meetings, courses and other activities for the employees, so that all employees are actively involved in this sustainability plan.

This must help to ensure that the plan's goals are achieved, but at the same time also inspire and motivate the employees to go one step further and take initiatives under their own auspices, thus helping to contribute to the collective and global efforts around sustainability.

Sustainability areas

Our sustainability plan is divided into the three main categories described in the Brundtland Commission's report "Our Common Future" from 1987, which forms the basis for the international work with sustainability:

  • Climate/Environmental sustainability
  • Economic sustainability
  • Social sustainability

The 17 world goals from the UN are thus also divided into these 3 categories.

According to i.a., then the breakdown is as follows:​

Definition: Climate and Environment

  • Climate is defined as an area's weather conditions in terms of temperature, precipitation, humidity, air pressure, etc. measured over a longer period (source:
  • The climate action primarily takes place against the direct and indirect use of energy as well as the emission of CO2 and other harmful substances (called "Green House Gas" or GHG.) into the atmosphere. (source:
  • Environment is the physical surroundings and conditions under which people, animals and plants live with mutual influence (source:
  • Climate and environmental sustainability focuses on taking care of our planet - because the next generations will also need it. Climate and environmental sustainability covers 5 of the World Goals, namely Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation, 7: Sustainable energy, 13: Climate action, 14: Life in the sea and Goal 14: Life on land. (source:

Definition: Economic sustainability

  • In order to achieve economic sustainability, the focus must be on strengthening employment, promoting sustainable companies and products, and that more people must be part of the working community.
  • Economic sustainability covers the following World Goals: Goal 8: Decent jobs and economic growth, Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure, Goal 10: Less inequality and Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production. (source:

Definition: Social sustainability

  • With social sustainability, concrete emphasis is placed on the human factors, and the focus is placed on people's lives, behavior and well-being as a catalyst for creating a sustainable society. (source: Dansk Industri)
  • Social sustainability covers the following World Goals: Goal 1: End poverty, Goal 2: End hunger, Goal 3: Health and well-being, Goal 4: Quality education, Goal 5: Gender equality, Goal 11: Sustainable cities and local communities and Goal 16: Peace , justice and strong institutions. (source:

Overall objective

This plan will, as far as possible, follow guidelines and recommendations from the following initiatives:

  • The UN's Global Goals
  • Roadmap for a green Denmark (Køreplan for et grønt Danmark)
  • Greenhouse Gas Protocol

Objectives 2021 - 2025

The overall objectives set out in this plan are as follows:

In 2021, we focused on finding the low-hanging fruit that could be directly addressed and changes made.

The goal here was to create an overview of the areas where the group was consciously or unconsciously already in the process of improving the areas.

Sub-goal: Decision to develop a comprehensive "Sustainability Plan" is adopted and initial measures are mapped and explained.


In 2022, the goal is that before the end of the year, some very concrete goals have been set for where you want to implement and create a reduction in the CO2 (GHG) footprint, but also which other areas within social sustainability, that must inserted.

The final plan for 2025 must be ready by the end of the year and be launched in early 2023.

Sub-goal: By the end of the year, the final "sustainability plan" has been formulated and adopted by the management group. Plan for implementation in the group and the individual subsidiaries is included.


Sub-goals for 2023 are drawn up

Sub-goals for 2024 are drawn up

The final goals for 2025 are drawn up and an overall implementation plan with activities and annual milestones is set in motion.

Existing measures

Over a long period of time, we have already carried out activities that help to create better sustainability. Some initiatives have been unconscious or not directly planned, and others have been initiated to participate overall in the general effort for better sustainability. In connection with this sustainability plan, we have identified these early initiatives, and we have now categorized them within the three main groups.

Current initiatives:

Climate and environmental sustainability
  • Electricity consumption
    • We are working in collaboration with our landlord (DEAS A/S) to ensure that our electricity is as "green" as possible.
      • Goal: Indirect reduction of GHG

    • At the same time, ongoing efforts are made to ensure that new purchases of electronic devices use as little power as possible. This must help to lower our total electricity consumption by xx% before 2025
      • In the summer of 2021, the cooling system in the server room was replaced, which meant a direct reduction in electricity consumption of 20.5%

    • Timers are established on light sources, where possible, so that lights are not switched on outside working hours or for longer periods when a room is not in use.

  • Heat consumption
    • We are working in collaboration with our landlord (DEAS A/S) to ensure that our heating is as "green" as possible.
      • Goal: Indirect reduction of GHG

    • Thermostats on heating appliances
      • Thermostats have already been installed on all heaters.

  • Commuter driving
    • After the Corona crisis, when many employees worked at home for longer periods, we looked at the possibilities of reducing employees' commuting. By creating new models for homework, the aim is to reduce the total number of kilometers driven each year by the employees.
      • Goal: Indirect reduction of GHG

  • Green Canteen
    • In collaboration with other companies in the tenancy, we have come together to ensure that the food in the canteen is as green as possible. In dialogue with our supplier, work is continuously being done to replace the food selection with as green alternatives as possible.
      • Goal: Indirect reduction of GHG

  • Reduction of water consumption
    • We have continuously worked with the landlord to ensure that water consumption is reduced as much as possible. Double flush toilets have been installed and all taps have been checked to ensure they do not drip or use too much water.
    • We have installed an environmentally friendly dishwasher that uses a low consumption of water.

  • General office waste
    • Most waste is sorted and placed in the special containers provided by the landlord. This applies to cardboard, plastic, paper, organic material and small combustibles

Within climate sustainability and CO2 emissions, it is our goal that during 2022 we have implemented the calculation tool "Climate Compass" from the Danish Business Authority. The climate compass is a CO2 calculation tool that is based on the standards from the "GHG Protocol", which is the global standard for calculating CO2 and other gases (GHG).

With this tool, we can calculate the annual GHG emissions and set targets for 2025 via an internationally approved standard, which can also form the basis for our green accounts in the future.

There is continuous work to ensure a low consumption of water, and a great effort is made to sort waste for recycling, so that as much as possible can be included in a circular economy.


Economic sustainability

We work purposefully to stimulate the circular economy, which promotes innovation and job development, so that sustained and sustainable economic growth is created. In addition to saving the planet's resources, the circular economy must also ensure that already extracted resources are reused in new and creative ways.

  • Electronics and inventory
    • Electronic waste is collected together and taken to the recycling center in the area, where it is sorted into the correct cages and containers.
    • Inventory such as tables, chairs and other types of furniture are taken to the recycling center in the area and sorted into the correct cages and containers.

  • Purchase of electronics
    • When purchasing new electronic devices, PCs, etc. then the purchaser must ensure as far as possible that upon disposal, the device can be included in the circular economy.

  • Purchase of inventory
    • We very rarely buy new inventory, furniture and the like. Inventory from the companies that we include in the group is often reused through acquisitions and the like.

Social sustainability

We have always had a very inclusive employee policy. No distinction is made between age, gender, race and personal circumstances such as religion or sexuality. Work is ongoing with the group's CSR policy, which must help to stimulate and promote opportunities for the employees, customers and suppliers, business partners and players in the local environment.

  • Employment of new employees
    • In all job advertisements it is made clear that Consit Gruppen is an advocate for equality and inclusion.

  • Local suppliers
    • As far as possible, we use local suppliers for office supplies, catering and drinks for the tea kitchen, cleaning, plant service, etc.
    • This is done to support the local community and to ensure that the suppliers do not have to drive unnecessarily much.
    • Most suppliers are located within a radius of 10 kilometers from us.

  • Interns
    • Our companies regularly have interns from various educational institutions. With this, we want to signal that we are open to knowledge sharing and to give young people the best opportunities in connection with their education.

  • Flexible working conditions
    • Working conditions that ensure a balance between work life and private life.
