Sustainable development

Sustainable development means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Why is sustainable development so important today?

For a long time it’s been obvious that we couldn’t keep focusing only on economic growth, enriching ourselves personally and exploiting nature. We have already paid a high price for our shortsightedness and we have to change.

This means acting in all the three dimensions of sustainability. Finding long-term development solutions that combine economic growth with environmental protection while enabling us to meet our social needs.

At URSA, we are proud of our contribution to sustainable development and delighted to welcome you to our Sustainability Report 2012.

Why a sustainability report?

A sustainability report helps us define what we need to do to improve our products and the way we behave as a company. So we can contribute to sustainable development still further.

We demonstrate that our win-win solution – thermal insulation and energy efficiency – as well as acoustic comfort is a key tool in shifting towards sustainable development.

You have the confidence that comes with seeing we’re transparent and consistent in our reporting on sustainability.
