Advania launches Sustainability Report for 2023

Advania AB (Advania Group) is pleased to announce the release of its sustainability report for 2023. The report outlines a unified sustainability strategy across Advania and details each country's commitment within the group to meet ambitious collective targets.

As a leading IT service provider in Northern Europe, Advania plays a pivotal role in fostering sustainable development. The Group has set clear objectives concerning its own operations and its value chain. Additionally, there are numerous country-specific targets addressing local needs and directives.

“Advania and the tech industry have an important role to play in creating and developing a more sustainable society. Our commitment to sustainable business practices is of utmost importance, and we continue to support the UN Global Compact and its ten principles in the areas of human rights, working conditions, environment, and business ethics,” states Hege Støre, CEO of Advania.

In 2023, Advania demonstrated significant growth, both organically and through strategic acquisitions. As of 31 December 2023, the Group consists of over 4,400 highly skilled professionals dedicated to creating sustainable value through the smart use of technology.

The Group took several initiatives in 2023 to integrate key sustainability goals into its operations, generating notable outcomes:

  • Advania Iceland and Sweden’s near-term climate targets have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), making Advania the first Icelandic IT company to have its reduction targets for carbon emissions approved.
  • The adoption of 'The tech company with people at heart' as the new brand promise and 'Our difference is you' as the new employer value proposition, to harmonise the group’s branding across all regions.
  • Throughout the year, Advania made strategic acquisitions and divestments. Advania Finland acquired the Apple hardware division of Core Service Oy, enhancing its consulting and service capabilities as well as its status as an authorised product reseller. In Sweden, Advania acquired RTS Group AB, a private IT services company specialising in large-scale digital transformation projects and managed services.

“At Advania, we recognise our employees as our most valuable resource — with sustainability at the core of our ethos. We possess both the capability and the responsibility to reduce our environmental footprint and harness the tech sector's potential, enabling us not only to improve our practices but also to assist our customers in becoming significantly more climate-conscious,” concludes Hege Støre.
