Sustainability that builds customer value
All aspects of the operations that Resurs conducts are to be characterised by business ethics, social and environmental responsibility. A responsible business that is aligned with a vision of empowering people and providing them with the conditions to live the life that they desire: a life that is to be sustainable both today and in the long term. Our objective is to make a difference for the daily lives of our customers, partners and employees.
Resurs wants to…
- Inspire others to make sustainable
Resurs wants to encourage a sustainable lifestyle and enable people to make decisions that lead to a higher level of sustainability.
- Be a responsible company that supports, customers, partners and society.
Resurs takes this commitment very seriously and endeavours to have a positive impact on its retail finance partners, customers and society.
Sustainability efforts are to be integrated across the Resurs Group’s entire value chain with a focus on areas in which the Group can have the most impact toward long-term sustainable value creation for owners, customers, employees, investors and society at large.
Resurs Holding has signed the UN corporate sustainability initiative, the Global Compact, and has therefore committed to compliance with the ten principles that cover human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Alongside the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Resurs Group’s Code of Conduct and Resurs Group’s guidelines and policies create the framework for the Group’s sustainability agenda.
- As an employer
Resurs actively works with equal opportunity, equal treatment, diversity, a good work environment, development opportunities, involvement and a meaningful work life
- As a company in the region
Resurs is devoted to an inclusive society where everyone has the opportunity to realise their potential. Resurs wants to contribute to health and active participation, and focuses on supporting young people and new entrants to the labour market.
- As a company in the industry
Resurs adopts a long-term approach and works responsibly, focusing on the customer. The environment and human rights are important and considered in all decisions.
The UN Global Compact is an international voluntary initiative to mobilize the power in civil society and the business world. By signing the Global Compact, we have agreed to comply with ten universal principles of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.
For us, this is an obvious choice. We have always had a strong social commitment and through Global Compact, we take joint responsibility with companies and organizations around the world. Every year, we report our work for a sustainable future – directly to the UN Global Compact as well as through our Sustainability Report, which Resurs Group publishes together with the annual report each spring.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the most ambitious agenda for sustainable development the world’s countries have ever adopted, and they exists to achieve four fantastic ideas by 2030: To eradicate extreme poverty. To reduce inequality and injustice in the world. To promote peace and justice. To solve the climate crisis. By achieving the SDGs, this could become reality.
Resurs works actively to support sustainable development according to the UN SDGs. The following six goals were identified as being possible for Resurs to affect and contribute to through its operations:
- Goal 3 Good health and well-being
- Goal 4 Quality education
- Goal 5 Gender equality
- Goal 8 Decent work and economic growth
- Goal 10 Reduced inequalities
- Goal 12 Responsible consumption and production

Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals also provide us with a clear direction and objectives for human rights, labour conditions and equality.Our Code of Conduct clarifies the Group’s position on such issues as anti-discrimination, working conditions, forced labour, child labour, political activities, freedom of association and the right to collective agreements.
We support our employees’ right to freedom of association and collective bargaining in accordance with national laws and regulations. Our working hours, salaries and other employment conditions are in accordance with national and local law and the relevant ILO conventions.
