"A strong social responsibility permeates everything we do at IST."

Our social responsibility
A strong social responsibility permeates everything we do at IST. Our conviction and main source of motivation is that everyone should be allowed to develop and live a meaningful life. On their own terms and based on their circumstances.
For us it is important to be involved in shaping the kind of society we want to live in. A fair and sustainable society. We do this through various projects and initiatives, both at a local, regional and international level. We promote sound and fair values in working life, in schools and in sports and we work to minimize impact on the environment and for a sustainable use of resources. Here, you will soon find more detailed descriptions of our various Corporate Social Responsibility projects.

Environmental Certification
In Sweden, our business is environmentally certified in accordance with the requirements of Föreningen Svensk Miljöbas. Its purpose is to promote sustainable development and reduce environmental impact. The association manages and develops the national environmental standard Svensk Miljöbas, customized for smaller businesses and other organizations. The standard aims to ensure that businesses awarded the diploma fulfill all the requirements specified in the standard. The standard therefore also contains requirements for how issuers work, the materials they use, and requirements for the auditors who may approve a business. Currently around 650 companies have been certified by Svensk Miljöbas.

In Norway, we are certified in accordance with the requirements of Miljöfyrtårn, Norway's premier certification for businesses that want to document their environmental work and show social responsibility. Almost 5,000 businesses are certified by Miljöfyrtårn (December 2015). If you are certified by Fyrtårn you are required to work systematically with environmental issues. Your business meets the requirements and implements efforts for more environmentally friendly operations and a good working environment.
