We are committed to being part of the global effort to create a sustainable world, an effort in which we must all take part if we are to reach targets set in Agenda 2030.
We have identified company impact on eight of the sustainability goals:
Visolit aims to be the leading Nordic provider of Cloud Solutions to small and medium sized businesses. Our vision is: “Your vision is our mission” - and we strive to understand our customers vision to empower our customer`s transformation. We are the customer's knowledge partner, and our motto is "Every challenge needs a partner". Our values also play an important role in how we run our business, and guide our sustainability approach: Embrace knowledge, Achieve together and Empower Change.
IT is a central part of the DNA in organisations
During 2020, we experienced an unprecedented digitalization acceleration, and demand for effective and modern cloud solutions soared among the many companies who now had employees working from home. IT is no longer a support function, but an essential part of the DNA in organizations, and puts the ICT sector in the definitive forefront of transformation and innovation.
As recent surveys indicate, the ICT sector is a great contributor to competencies in other sectors, thereby fuelling the transformation of society in all sectors. This increases the importance of technology and competencies in our society, and further underlines the role ICT can play in providing sustainable solutions. This is a challenge and an opportunity that Visolit has taken several steps to address, including high level dialogues with decision makers and relevant organizations in Norway and Sweden.
Embrace knowledge: Our employees are key
Our employees are the key to deliver quality to our customers. Our employees work continuously to share their knowledge, achieve together and to empower change for our customers. At Visolit, every employee is valuable, and the knowledge and experience they possess is essential. We encourage every employee to develop their competencies through relevant studies or courses, and structured development plans are followed up by managers. At Visolit, we know that continuous learning is important to keep delivering value both for Visolit as a company, but also delivering value to the employee and to the society at large. Through 2020 we saw an unprecedented learning journey for our employees, where more than 600 courses within cloud and security were attended by employees, including a significant number of relevant certifications. This is truly what embracing knowledge is all about and will further enable sustainable business practices.
Partnerships for the goals
Visolit is committed to making sustainability a part of our strategy, culture, and day-to-day operations. This commitment will guide our work going forward. To Visolit, integration of the Global Compact and its principles into our business strategy, culture, and daily operations is important. Visolit remains committed to responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
In addition, Visolit takes into account the economic, social and ecological aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and has structured the sustainability goals into three levels, namely biosphere, society and economy. We have put Partnership for the goals at the very top of the levels for three main reasons: It is a necessary way of working to reach other important sustainability goals, it is an integral part of our strategy and it is also in line with our core value of achieving together.
Continuing our efforts as a responsible business, Visolit partakes in active partnerships and dialogues with relevant authorities, both locally, regionally, and nationally. We remain committed to partnerships as an important way to create a more sustainable world. Examples of our efforts can be read in our communication of progress to the United Nations.
