Our work with the Global Goals

From global goals to everyday goals

The 17 Global Goals contain many elements from ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and what we call "the green transition".
Our "green transition" started back in 2009, when we became ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certified. With these certifications, we made our commitment to continuously improve our environmental, health and safety performance clear. We have made many changes and improvements but we will always thrive to do better. The journey does not stop here.

Using the slogan "From global goals - to everyday goals" prepared by Haderslev Business Council, CERTEX Danmark A/S is active in compliance with UN17. For us it has become an integrated and natural part of everyday life. Everyone works with one or more goals daily, without it being something we really think about, which is also the purpose. Below you can read more about the goals that CERTEX Danmark A/S is working with. We have described the actions we have implemented to help make a difference.
