Material Sustainability Aspects for Advania

Digitalisation and the IT sector can support sustainable development and help tackle some of the greatest challenges of our time. Advania wants to contribute as much as we can, where we can.

During 2022, Advania operated in all Nordic countries – Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Norway, and Denmark – as well as in the UK. In addition to these operations, we also have offshoring companies in South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Serbia.

We have identified 9 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as being particularly relevant to our business. These SDGs form the foundation of our sustainability strategy which we updated during 2022, thereby strengthening both our own operations and those of our clients.

Sustainable development goal 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 16 and 17

Our sustainability strategy is based on a new materiality analysis for the group and encompasses the most significant social, environmental, and economic aspects across our value chain. You can find further information on the materiality analysis and our strategy in our latest sustainability report.

What we do

Creating value in our society

Advania and the tech industry have an important role to play in creating and developing a more sustainable society. We have a responsibility to reduce the negative impact our products and services cause on people and the planet and shift our business models to more circular offerings.

Common approach – local adaptation

Advania has defined a new common sustainability strategy for the entire group during 2022. The new strategy includes guidance on how to prioritise the focus areas and material aspects. Since Advania’s companies in each country vary in business operations and size, each country sets its own ambition level. All countries work towards common group goals, with the option to add locally selected goals.

These illustrations show a few examples of how Advania creates value in society:

Milestones during the year

Continuing our ambitious growth strategy

During 2022, Advania Group has continued its growth journey and more than doubled in size. The new acquisitions give us a broader scope to attend to our clients’ needs. With added size also come added responsibilities to maintain and cultivate our sustainability awareness and requirements for our suppliers, customers, and employees.

ISO certification

Advania now has ISO-certified management systems in five of its six countries of operation, a distinct improvement from two of five countries in 2021. We view these certifications as a quality stamp confirming that our systematic work is generating consistent and reliable improvements.
