The environmental report

Our first environmental report highlights environmental efforts and impacts for 2020, 2021 and 2022. 

The report addresses relevant and significant environmental aspects that are considered important to our business, such as Green-house gas (GHG) emissions, volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, energy use, wateruse and waste generation. 

We pledge to be transparent and open in our communication about our performance - both when it is improving and when it is not.

A Message from our CEO

Our founder, Knud Nygaard, strongly believed that prioritizing the well-being of his employees and building strong relations based on mutual trust and loyalty is a fundamental part of running a successful business.

Jan Nygaard (photo), the son of the founder, confirms that this admirable mindset still guides how we do business today - 50 years later. We want to provide our employees with a safe, informal, and diverse workspace that they are proud to be a part of - they are not just employees but a part of the family and constitute NGIs DNA.
