Caring for the Environment and Society
At Gobo Inc., our commitment lies in safeguarding the environment and climate across all our activities.
This commitment is realized through deliberate initiatives and the responsible utilization of resources. Our focus aligns with the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals, concentrating our direct efforts on three of these goals:
Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
Goal 13: Climate Action
Our concentrated endeavors center on waste and energy management within our company, recognizing that these areas offer the most impactful opportunities for reducing our carbon footprint.
We meticulously sort our waste into ten essential categories: food waste, paper, cardboard, glass, metal, plastic, food and beverage cartons, hazardous waste, textiles, and residual waste. Notably, the refunds from our deposits are directed towards assisting vulnerable groups and supporting children-focused activities.
Furthermore, we actively embrace packaging reuse as a means to minimize resource wastage. We remain informed about emerging sustainable packaging alternatives.
Within our warehouse and our four offices situated in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Västerås, and Stockholm, we utilize energy-efficient LED lighting and employ heating optimization strategies. A pivotal step occurred in 2019, with the conversion of 98% of our lighting to LED technology, resulting in a substantial reduction in kilowatt consumption.
In Brøndby, in 2024, we have installed solar panels to provide electricity for our total consumption.
In 2021, we introduced charging stations at our Aarhus and Sweden branches, not only catering to our customers but also promoting electric vehicle usage among our employees. In Rødovre, our upcoming plan entails installing solar panels to fully cover our electricity requirements. In conjunction with this project, charging stations will also be installed.
To cultivate an energy-conscious workplace, all employees are trained to switch off lights when not in use.
Enhancing Heating Efficiency
We derive our heating from district heating sources. Initiatives to improve heating efficiency include the installation of heat exchangers in all meeting rooms in early 2020. Additionally, we engage in an annual process of insulating doors and windows to enhance overall energy conservation.
