At Ermidio we think it is important to take a stand on common universal problems and create more sustainable development in our society and this is with regard to both people and our planet.

We will take responsibility and actively contribute to solving universal problems. It requires some short-term and long-term objectives. Therefore, we have the choice to work consciously based on the UN's 17 global goals for sustainable development.

The UN's 17 global goals for sustainable development were adopted at the UN summit in New York in 2015, where 193 countries participated, but only entered into force in 2016 and must reach 2030.

The ambitious goals oblige all member countries to completely eradicate poverty and hunger in the world, reduce inequalities, ensure good education and better health for all, in addition to developing decent jobs and more sustainable economic growth for all.

This requires an integrated effort to achieve results, therefore it is important to take joint responsibility and build concrete measures with an integrated collaboration with business partners and networks and implement these goals in the company's practice.

We have chosen to work based on the following UN global goals:

Our short-term goals

Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production

Sub-goal 12.5 Before 2030, the amount of waste must be significantly reduced through prevention, reduction, recovery and recycling.”

We want to help our customers choose products made from sustainable materials that can be reused, mixed or reused. This applies to textiles that can be recycled, and metals that can be melted down and reused and other materials that have the option of recycling and creating a longer life cycle, which in that way reduces CO2 emissions and protects our environment.

We are not manufacturers, but we cooperate with Danish manufacturers and designers. We select products based on their properties and high qualities and present them to our customers in our webshop.

We want to reduce the consumption of materials such as paper, plastic bags and cardboard. That's why we use smaller clearances when sending packages. Shorter and faster logistics in our service.

We will pass on messages to you and create awareness of responsible consumption patterns of products, materials and services.

Our long-term goals

Goal 8: Decent jobs and economic growth

Target 8.5 By 2030, full and productive employment and decent work must be achieved for all women and men, including young people and persons with disabilities, and with equal pay for work of equal value.”

Goal 10: Less inequality

Sub-goal 10.2 By 2030, social, economic and political inclusion of all must be strengthened and promoted, regardless of age, gender, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status.”

With Ermidio, we believe in a diverse world community. We want to help create a positive view of people. Our world is diverse and this is a strength. All people are equal and therefore no one should be left behind in development and everyone should be given opportunities to participate in our society. Therefore, we will focus on people with autism spectrum disorder and motivate others to support this group.

According to statistics, many young people with autism do not have the opportunity to get an education or a job. Approx. 2.8% of the population in Denmark has a diagnosis of autism (According to a study by Aarhus University, 2018). They are a group of people who can be hidden and are quiet because they find it difficult to communicate with others and many of them tend to be socially isolated due to their disability. Furthermore , nine out of ten people with autism are without regular employment. We believe that this is mostly about acceptance and responsibility from all of us in society. People with autism should be recognized for who they are, without depriving them of their participation in society.

People with autism possess other characteristics that could be taken into account. They possess a good memory, they are visually strong, they are loyal and purposeful.

Ermidio will support people with autism in jobs and create tasks for them with regard to their disability in our company. We believe that integrating people with autism into jobs is ethically correct. It is important for us to be able to encourage others for this purpose and we know that we can make a difference and make people with autism happy.
