It's good business to think about the triple bottom line. That’s what we believe at Amesto. We prefer to call it Corporate Social Value since we see the value in the job we do and what we bring, both to our company and to the community in which we operate. Corporate Social Value (CSV) creates pride and meaning around the job we do and the company we are building. It is strategically rooted in each individual company in our group. We create value for our owners, employees, partners and society. In line with our philosophy concerning the long-term, generational perspective, we want to contribute to projects that offer a social benefit over a longer period of time.
We believe patience is the key to achieving goals. Amesto is a diverse business, with multiple companies and priorities. We use the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (STGs) as a framework for the projects we work on. This is a joint work schedule for the 193 member states of the UN that came into force in 2016. The work schedule consists of 17 goals and 169 sub-goals that extend until 2030. We work strategically through our companies to achieve the following goals.
SDGs 3 and 9
Good health and wellbeing & Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure Amesto Solutions provides business systems that streamline small and large businesses throughout the Nordic region. We have a shared goal as part of our pro bono project for Doctors Without Borders to create an organisational showcase of how efficiently an NGO can be administered. Our long-term work means the organisation can grow without having to hire more people so that more of the money they raise can be used in the field to save lives. As part of this project, Amesto Solutions is also working on SDG 9.5: before 2030,we should have managed to upgrade infrastructure and outdated industries to ensure they are sustainable, while increasing efficiency and the use of environmentally friendly technologies.
