Sustainability.

Prenax’s goals are aligned with the UN’s seventeen global sustainability goals and we are committed to the United Nations Global Compact and Forward Faster initiative. We believe that ESG begins at the very core of a company. Our work on sustainability comprises of a comprehensive set of key commitments across all the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) dimensions that guide the execution of our strategy. It includes ambitious targets and detailed plans of action.

Over time, we have seen the industry slowly move away from print, towards digital content, in an era of new innovation. We have a long history of advocating online resources to our customers, in place of printed products. 

Our commitment to ESG has been influenced by the fact that Prenax was founded in the Nordics, in Sweden 1993. The Nordic region has historically been a driver of social, governmental and environmental topics. We have set our global standards high in all areas of our operations and have actively defined environmental impacts and sought eco-friendly alternatives.
