The purpose of reporting on Brav’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) expedition is to concretely document and measure our challenges and risks, push our responsibility work forward, and communicate with our internal and external stakeholders about our responsibility goals, negative findings and achievements. 

We at Brav, with our brands Swix, Ulvang, Lundhags, Helsport, TOKO, and, have had a strong focus on responsibility matters for a long time, most of our brands since the very beginning of their existence. With our responsibility report, we can put it into words and invite you to join our responsibility journey. Please take a look at our ambitions, successes, and challenges which we have worked on and continue to work on together with all internal and external stakeholders. 
The report was written in reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standard 2021, which is the gold standard when it comes to sustainability reporting and is approved by Ethical Trade Norway and our Board. 
Furthermore, the report contains the due diligence processes according to Section 4 of the Norwegian Transparency Act.

The purpose of conducting a Carbon Footprint Accounting is to get a fact-based status on today’s emissions to be prepared to reduce our carbon footprint in the future.

In 2021, Brav has conducted its first full Carbon Footprint Accounting in Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3.

Scope 3 is voluntary, but since it accounts for over 99% of our Greenhouse Gas emissions, we focused on getting all 3 scopes in place for 2021, to be able to see our actual emissions.

We continued to measure our carbon footprint for 2022. We improved our internal data quality, reported on more categories in Scope 3, and used more accurate emission factors. 

The Carbon Footprint Accounting for 2021 and 2022 has been done in cooperation with CEMAsys.
