Dstny's Sustainability - The future begins now
Dstny’s motto is “Business Communications today and tomorrow”. An important part of that sentence is the word tomorrow. A tomorrow that we believe will be so much better if we all take our responsibility.
The future begins now
It is not a distant philosophical thing that will happen in ten years. The future is always what happens in the next second, the next minute, the next day, the next year. Time goes by and all of a sudden, we are in a new future. And what we do now will have enormous effects on what happens next. Both when it comes to the environment and social aspects. If we take hold of the future now, the future will be easier later. At Dstny, we understand the importance of companies caring for the future of our employees, the environment and our society. It is us, entrepreneurs, who can make a really big difference, in the end. If we make the right choice, it will spill over to our customers, suppliers and investors. We must make a difference – for the future begins now.
Corporate Social Responsibility - CSR
You may have heard of CSR before? CSR stands for Corporate Social Responsibility and is about us entrepreneurs being responsible for how we affect society. How we affect social perspectives, the environment and our economy. It’s all about sustainability and that companies should contribute to a sustainable society. Of course, we at Dstny want to be part of this important journey and have taken a big step around our own CSR work.
The global goals
Leaders around the world have set 17 global goals. Officially, these are referred to as SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). By striving towards these goals, we can together fight poverty and injustice and raise the climate issue. With these goals in mind, we entrepreneurs, organizations, communities and individuals can jointly create a better future.
No one can do everything but everyone can do something
Trying to change the world alone is far too big a task. But we can all do something. And we believe that we can have a greater effect by focusing our efforts. Therefore, we chose to concentrate on 3 of the 17 main goals.
Good health and well-being
Affordable and clean energy
One of the things we chose to focus on is to reduce our CO2 footprint. We want to achieve this by, for example, controlling how we travel and through effective hosting solutions.
Dstny's Charity Work
Dstny has an active sponsorship strategy that harmonizes with our sustainability goals. In order to continuously engage our staff, specific purposes for which we donate money are nominated and selected every quarter. In this way, we can make specific efforts where we think it is most needed right now, at the same time as we involve staff in our CSR work.
The technology cycle
There is a wear-and-tear mentality when it comes to technology, not least when it comes to mobile phones. A mentality that is consuming the earth’s resources. As part of Dstny’s CSR work, we have taken steps to minimize wastage and the negative environmental impact that hardware can cause. By offering a service, where we not only benefit recycling, but also reuse of mobile phones, we can both provide our customers with affordable and secure hardware management while benefiting the environment. Recycling in all its glory, but reuse is slightly better, and through the process we provide our customers, 98% of hardware, which would otherwise have ended up in a drawer or in the recycling, could instead go to a new user. All in order to provide our customers with a more sustainable solution.
A corporate culture also needs to be sustainable. A sustainable culture leads to employees thriving, developing and driving the company in the right direction; for customers, employees, suppliers and shareholders.
Our corporate culture is based on openness, unpretentiousness and creativity. We value personal development highly, and we give our employees the opportunity to shape their own role and work situation. In addition to having fun together during working hours, we make sure to get out on joint activities and thus grow together. We are proud of our corporate culture and strive to make it even better!
We care about our customers
Without its customers, a company is nothing. It is part of our daily work to familiarize ourselves with our customers’ problems and needs. Exceptional customer service and good customer relations must be something that permeates all projects and tasks. To get continuous information about what our customers think about our performance, we send out NPS surveys. That way we can get data driven information about what we do well and if there is something we need to focus a little extra on.
We care just as much about our colleagues
For us, it means everything that our colleagues are thriving. That they feel they are getting the help and tools they need to succeed. That they feel that they have a sustainable workload and a good balance between work and leisure. That is why we send out employee surveys, a so-called motivation index, every year. Should any of the points we touch on in the survey stand out, we also do so-called pulse examinations to delve into that issue. The result from our motivation index can be anywhere between 1 and 10. Our ambition is to always be at 8 or higher.
