Gist og Vist makes three-year commitment to Burðardygt Vinnulív

Today Gist og Vist announced they would be joining eleven founding companies on the three-year Burðardygt Vinnulív initiative.

The trial project, launched in January this year, aims to advance sustainable business practice and contribute towards UN Sustainable Development Goals such as Climate Action.

Johannes Jensen, CEO of Gist og Vist said: “We are very happy to be on board with this project.

Investing in its environmental sustainability is one way in which we plan to do this.”

Januar, Audit and Accounting Firm, have also recently joined forces with the companies as a Partner to the initiative on sustainability reporting.

Later this year, the network of businesses will announce a joint plan focussed on addressing the growing risks and opportunities facing the corporate sector.
